Regulatory Compliance Top Cause of CFO Stress & How ERP Software Can Help

View Our Posts

 In these times, it is not easy to be a CFO.  They are the ones who often have to reveal the bad news that comes with a recession: budget cuts, layoffs, and new regulatory requirements.  Of all the unpleasant things CFOs have to do,  instituting new regulatory requirements tops the list according to the DeloitteCFOSignalssurvey for Q4 2010.

 Change is often stressful for everyone, but the person responsible for the changing sometimes takes on more stress than most people realize.  With issues like corporate tax policy and health care reform taking center stage in Washington, many CFOs must prepare their companies to adjust to new regulations.  Furthermore, actually monitoring regulatory compliance can be time consuming and costly.
