GOOD CORPORATE GOVERNANCE IN CORPORATIONS

Corporate governance refers to the set of rules, principles and instructions that regulate the composition and work of a company’s governing bodies. Good corporate governance reinforces the vision of third parties outside company of its possibilities through the trust of customers, investors, employees and suppliers, which leads to greater profitability of the company in any business it starts or in which it intervenes, favours credibility in the eyes of third parties and their permanence and loyalty, promoting business growth and the generation of profits which constitute the basis for the appropriate management of the company.
The regulation of good corporate governance in Spain is based mainly on the Corporations Act, which regulates the principles of compliance and the duties of the directors. The Unified Code of Good Corporate Governance, which is compulsory for listed companies in Spain, establishes a principle of compliance or explanation. But fundamentally, the regulation of good corporate governance is based on business policy, as internal rules must go before the legal imperative.

The general status of each company must be examined, reviewing the legal information existing within it. This may be an internal or external compliance that analyses possible anomalies through an audit.

Based on the above, the basic principles and recommendations of good corporate governance could be summarised as follows:
  • Information: it must be clearly stated whether or not the established good practices are being complied with.
  • Transparency: meetings must be clear and all those involved must act in the knowledge of the appropriate information.
  • Participation: the company should facilitate participation in the meetings and strengthen the right to attend.

  • Liability: the governing body must act diligently and responsibly.
  • Periodic evaluation: the governing body should carry out a process of periodic evaluation of compliance with the principles of good governance.
  • Respect for time: the governing body should be responsible for time management.
  • Risk prevention: Provide the company with a compliance department that is independent from the rest of the company and detects risks, problems and misconduct.
