Entity Compliance modules

The problem

All businesses today face high-stakes compliance and complex corporate governance issues. Local compliance rules change regularly. Penalties for non-compliance can be high and sometimes include director/officer personal liability for debts of the company. Keeping on top of the rules and regulations that apply to your (foreign) subsidiaries is hard.

The Solution: Entity Compliance Modules


Corpman’s “Entity Compliance” modules are practical guidance notes describing:

  • Rules: a detailed description of recurring corporate compliance obligations
  • Knowhow: background information about each entity type
  • Due diligence checklist: checklists per entity type customized according to the rules and naming convention of each entity types jurisdiction


The content has been developed by Corpman’s team of editors, which consists of lawyers with experience at international firms such as Clifford Chance, Latham & Watkins and Deloitte, trust companies such as Vistra, and legal publishers Practical Law Company and Lexis Nexis.

Once developed, leading law firms have validated the content for accuracy.


The content is maintained on an ongoing basis by Corpman’s team and the validation partners. Any change in law that affects rules for an entity in the system is reflected in the content as soon as the change has been publicized.
