CFOs driving the corporate reporting reform agenda

CFOs driving corporate reporting reform

With corporate reporting reform already underway, now is the time for CFOs to take the initiative and drive the reporting agenda. Their role is critical to delivering not only a more relevant, streamlined portfolio of reports but also in meeting the needs of investors.

KPMG Australia’s report outlines recent changes and trends to improve the information provided to the capital markets and how the CFO’s role is essential in developing tomorrow’s reporting strategy.

Key insights

  • The corporate reporting landscape in Australia is changing and companies need to redefine their corporate reporting strategy accordingly. 
  • Corporate reporting continues to lack a widely recognised ‘flagship report’ around which all other corporate reporting revolves. 
  • CFOs are well placed to lead their organisation in developing a strategically aligned corporate reporting portfolio that better meets the needs of shareholders. 
  • Internal reporting should be aligned throughout the organisation to underpin what is reported externally. 
  • Corporate reporting reform can reduce the volume and complexity of corporate reports, saving organisations time and money, while providing clarity and more meaningful information for report users.
