Financial Reporting and Regulatory Reform
Tuesday, September 9, 2003; San Francisco World Affairs Council


Cosponsored by the Center for Financial Reporting and Management, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley and The World Affairs Council







Introduction


A dialogue between corporate financial executives, accounting and legal experts on business impacts and compliance strategies posed by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and US Patriot Act.


Sarbanes-Oxley and the Patriot Act are changing the way companies conduct financial tracking and reporting. Recent high profile corporate scandals and continuing concern over terrorist financing fueled quick passage of these reforms, but what are the impacts and costs to companies now and in the long-term? Are these reforms benefiting shareholders, and reducing the risk? What new liabilities face Boardmembers and executives? How are customers tracked? Is your company affected in ways you did not anticipate? What are the best methods of compliance, and how can you minimize the costs? This panel includes perspectives from corporate financial officers, accounting and legal experts. Panelists will discuss the impacts on companies, compliance strategies, and how to proactively address regulatory reforms.
