Can the increasing amount of regulations from all levels of government offer an opportunity for competitive advantage? Businesses typically view government regulations as obstacles in their quest for growth and profitability. However, some companies have gone beyond accepting the inevitable. They are leveraging new highly efficient entity management processes — forged in response to heightened regulatory demands — to create a level of efficiency that also yields a competitive advantage for their company.
The First Wave of Entity Compliance: Legal Department Efficiency
Since the implementation of Sarbanes-Oxley at the beginning of the 21st century both public and private sector companies have been pushed to institute greater controls and procedures into their daily workflows. The need for greater internal oversight and reporting capabilities led to expanded use of technology in corporate legal departments. These additional reporting requirements made more data readily available to the requesting government regulatory agency — and also to the business itself.
The Second Wave of Entity Compliance: Corporate-wide Operational Efficiency

Many organizations currently operate from a reactive compliance culture where all levels of the organization scramble to adhere to current regulations or are forced into a patchwork of compliance with new requirements in the pursuit of new contracts and other business opportunities. However, this type of reactive response generally puts a great strain on the already limited resources of the legal, tax, and finance teams, plus, the local management teams.
Alternatively, implementing a proactive entity compliance culture can significantly improve an organization’s ability to handle requirements, while yielding a number of business benefits. These include:
