Taking a Proactive Approach to Regulatory Compliance

Accounting software can help streamline and automate processes, but it cannot think for itself. Oftentimes companies are unaware issues exist within their regulatory reporting, and do not employ personnel with the skills to identify specific systemic errors and or deficiencies.

These issues can be exacerbated by the frequent changes in the rules and guidelines set forth by the ONRR, and state agencies, which together make it difficult to maintain regulatory compliance and avoid civil penalties. This leads to significant missed opportunities to reduce royalty and severance tax burdens and puts companies at risk for unfavorable ONRR and State audit findings and interest assessments.

At Corvus, we take a proactive approach to regulatory compliance. We work with clients to really understand their full accounting process, challenges and limitations. Once we have a complete picture, we develop and execute on a plan to identify systemic errors in existing processes and quantify potential risk exposure.
