Are you aware of what a compliance calendar is? Imagine you missed a due date, resulting in a compliance failure. Pretty scary, right?

Compliance failures are common in India. A recent survey conducted by Gartner polled 755 employees in 2021 who work in compliance roles at large companies to determine the rate of compliance failures that lead to fines and penalties.

The survey found that one-fourth of the respondents reported at least one compliance failure within the last year. Compliance is one of the top risks faced by businesses today.

Compliance projects are still on top of most organizations' agendas and will remain so in the years to come. The need for compliance with regulations increases as regulatory bodies tightens their grip on businesses. And this is not just limited to large companies but has also become a concern for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Multiple laws are frequently changing, are challenging to comprehend, and involve various stakeholders (internal/external) to manage. Managing compliance can be a daunting task if it's not addressed at an early stage. So, how do we manage all these regulations?

Let's dive in further:

1) What is compliance?

2) What is a compliance calendar?

3) What are the benefits of a compliance calendar

4) Why is compliance essential for an organization?

5) What does the Gujarati compliance calendar include?

This article aims to provide insights on how companies can manage compliance risk using the Gujarati calendar, which involves understanding the regulatory environment, developing policies/procedures, engaging internal resources to manage compliance risk, engaging external auditors and using technology tools to manage compliance.

What is Compliance?

Compliance is the set of activities that an organization performs to comply with laws, rules and regulations. Compliance is concerned with all aspects of the operations of a business or a government agency.

For example, in a financial institution, several regulatory bodies like RBI, IRDA, SEBI, and so on are empowered by law to enforce compliance.

Organizations have to comply with various acts like Income Tax Act, Companies Act, Securities Exchange Act, Payment & Settlement systems Act and many more which apply to them.

Several internal policies also need to be adhered to, such as Code of Conduct Policy (CCP), Whistle Blowing Policy, Sexual Harassment prevention policy, etc.

The above examples are just some of the organizations' regulations to comply with. There are many more examples at various levels of management such as departmental level, functional level etc. The number of rules listed here will vary from organization to organization based on the industry verticals and geographies they operate in.

In the case of the Gujrat compliance calendar, the following regulations are managed through the submission of forms to the respective departments:

1) Draft of Code on Wages () Rules, 2021

2) Shops Act

3) Factories Rules

4) Labour Welfare Fund Act 1965

5) Minimum Wages Rules, 1961

6) Professional Tax

Why is compliance essential for an organisation?

Every business needs to comply with the regulatory environment, which is even more critical for companies operating in India. The regulatory environment in India encompasses multiple laws (Central, State and Municipal) applicable across the business value chain, which are complex, changing frequently and involve various stakeholders (internal/external). These laws must be understood and complied with to ensure the smooth functioning of the business.

The regulatory landscape for compliance ranges from various laws, rules and regulations to internal policies, procedures and other guidelines. Compliance officers are typically tasked with ensuring that internal policies and practices are followed, company officials know applicable laws, and that necessary information is reported to relevant authorities.

Trying to figure out when you have to comply with various laws and regulations can be difficult, particularly if you're subject to more than three or four different government agencies. A compliance calendar like the Gujrat Compliance calendar can help keep track of the various filing dates for various regulatory filings.

The government makes Laws to regulate business practices, promote fairness in the market and protect consumers. In India, there are several laws that you as a company or business owner need to follow. Some regulations define how you operate your business and interact with your customers.

These laws include payments, financial statements, taxes and filing requirements that govern how a company must practice its business.
