Financial Policies and Procedures

Financial Policy Writers

Policy Pros provides Financial Policy Writing services to many of our clients. These policies and procedures assist with compliance with the UK Companies Act 2006 and provide a solid framework of controls and processes for clients to adhere to throughout their departments.

Financial Policy Examples

Below are examples of documents we have written or reviewed and partially updated for our clients, along with a summary of what they entail.

Audit Compliance Policy

This is essential for ensuring that a company meets legal and regulatory requirements. This policy outlines a business’s procedures and practices to comply with auditing standards. It is essential to establish trust among stakeholders by demonstrating the company’s commitment to transparency and accountability.

Budgeting and Forecasting Policy

This is crucial for the financial planning process of a company. It provides a structured approach to creating financial plans, predicting future financial performance, and allocating resources effectively. It ensures that the company’s financial activities are aligned with its strategic goals, leading to sustainable growth.

Corporate Governance Policy

This policy defines the roles and responsibilities within a company. It sets the framework for controlling and managing the company, ensuring a balance of power among the board of directors, management, and shareholders. It aims to foster a culture of integrity and accountability.

Director’s Responsibilities Document

Documenting the legal and ethical obligations of company directors is crucial for steering the company towards its objectives while ensuring compliance with corporate laws and protecting the interests of shareholders.

Financial Analysis and Reporting Policy

This policy dictates the methods and standards for evaluating and presenting the company’s financial health. This policy is pivotal in providing accurate and timely information to stakeholders, aiding in informed decision-making and strategic planning.

Financial Reporting Policy

Closely related to the above, the Financial Reporting Policy focuses specifically on the standards and procedures for compiling financial statements and reports. This policy ensures that financial disclosures are transparent, consistent, and compliant with regulatory requirements.

Internal Control Systems Policy

This document is designed to manage risks and safeguard the company’s assets. It encompasses the processes and procedures that ensure operations’ effectiveness and efficiency, financial reporting’s reliability, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Record Keeping Policy

This policy is fundamental for maintaining accurate and comprehensive records of all business transactions. This policy underpins the company’s financial integrity, supporting effective management and compliance with statutory requirements.

Expenses Policy

An expenses policy is related to financial governance and outlines the protocols for incurring and reimbursing business expenses. It ensures that expense claims are legitimate, reasonable, and consistent with the company’s financial objectives and ethical standards.

Treasury Management Policy

This addresses the strategies for managing a company’s liquidity, investments, and financial risks. This policy is fundamental in safeguarding the company’s capital and ensuring financial health through effective cash flow management and investment practices.

Investment Policy

This document guides the company’s investment decisions, aligning them with its risk tolerance, financial goals, and regulatory requirements. It ensures that investments are managed prudently to maximise returns and support the company’s growth.

Financial Policies by Organisation Type

Your required policies may differ slightly from the above depending on your organisation type. For example, our charity clients focus more on Reserves, Investments, and Fundraising policies.

We recommend all organisation types should have an Anti-Money Laundering and CTF policy in place as well as Prevention of the Facilitation of Tax Evasion Policy.  

Organisations should also consider Sanctions Compliance documentation where applicable.
