All over the world, there is a general acceptance that good corporate governance is good for business. It creates an environment of transparency, trust and accountability in order to support financial stability, sustainable economic growth and investment. 

Good corporate governance has therefore become a deciding factor that enables companies to maintain a strong financial position in their respective markets. Corporate governance and finance and accounting go hand in hand – one cannot function without the other. The finance and accounting department is one of the main gatekeepers of corporate governance in an organization, and even more so in times of crisis and economic downturn.
