For SEC XBRL Reporting, why do you need a Managed Service Provider today, more than ever before?

Significant shifts in operating environments and business models have been an unavoidable consequence of the pandemic. This may have impacted your bottom line, ultimately leading you back to the drawing board to restructure and re-strategize. An integral part of this strategy should be optimizing your compliance expenditure if it already doesn’t feature. SEC Compliance is critical, but it is not considered a core business function. So, it is probably the last component of your strategy. But it shouldn’t be.

This aspect of your business may be bleeding resources, time, and money for your bottom line. In today’s volatile economic scenario, getting outside help for regulatory compliance makes good business sense.

By partnering with an experienced service provider, you not only gain needed expertise but free up in-house staff to focus on your organization’s mission and goals.

Since the scope of this experience-based task needs to be tightly defined, it is essential to assess why a managed service model is the way to go.

Design and Validation of Internal Controls

Failure to identify weaknesses or process gaps in internal controls can cause deficiencies. These can grow to be systemic and result in severe financial, non-compliance and reputational damages to your enterprise, hurting long-term sustainability. But how much will you spend on time and resources to ensure process excellence in critical tasks like compliance and regulatory reporting?

A service provider will complete the essential processes on time and take responsibility for the output, sometimes even submitting it directly to the regulator. What’s more? They may even deliver an outcome that is far superior in quality and integrity than your own!

Technical Resources

For a long time, organizations have demanded specialized talent for specific tasks, especially finance and regulatory reporting. As the number and complexity of financial elements and the procedures to validate them increase, the more likely that lapses in oversight may occur. Moreover, the operational knowledge base for many economic and IT realms is expanding and deepening quickly.

This high velocity of change can make it challenging to ensure that your current employees possess cutting-edge domain knowledge and skills. In such instances, using the expertise of a service provider who is agile and efficient can save you the need to keep filling and building your talent pool.

Data Security

Data breaches make headlines almost every week, and as an organization, your financial data is your treasure chest. Also, governments and regulatory agencies are being keen and strengthening security requirements. They are also imposing harsher penalties for non-compliance.

Organizations that don’t have robust in-house security will not give the compliance team the proper protection for your sensitive data. That’s something you don’t want to air out publicly.

The intersection of these three attributes in critical activities such as securities compliance presents a specific mix of challenges that managed services may be well-suited to address.
