The Guide to Compliance, published by Global Investigations Review (GIR), brings together compliance guidance and criminal enforcement trends relating to financial crimes and misconduct. Baker McKenzie partners have contributed two chapters in GIR’s guide.

The chapter on Asia Pacific Compliance Enforcement covers key areas of enforcement priorities, including anti-bribery and anti-corruption, anti-money laundering and other key criminal offenses affecting multinational corporations, and provides an overview of emerging compliance issues and enforcement trends relevant to cross-border business.

The chapter on Compliance Issues in Corporate Transactions covers key compliance areas in due diligence, how to go about an effective assessment of compliance policies and procedures or issues in third-party dealings, and the process of remediating any compliance issues identified during due diligence.

The federal election is slated for 21 May 2022 and it is important to be aware of your obligations when it comes to political donations to ensure you are compliant with any disclosure requirements under the Commonwealth Electoral Act 19189 (Cth) (“Electoral Act”).
Not only do offences under the Electoral Act carry fines but non-compliance with political donations laws can lead to significant reputational risk in an area that frequently makes headlines.
This federal election is also the first since reforms in December 2021 tightened the laws relating to political donations in relation to foreign donors.
