What is the Control Framework?
The Control Framework is a structured, documented process for the application and testing of the controls in place to verify and evidence that Tax and Regulatory reporting data is of good quality, accurate and complete. The data items specific to tax and regulatory reporting are also documented as an appendix within the guide book. Board sign-off is required from each managing agent within the Lloyd’s market.
The initiative, mandated by Lloyd’s, encourages continuous improvement in this area and is Lloyd’s response to ensuring it can satisfy increasing requests for more granular tax and regulatory evidence from the Supervisory Authorities into the future. The Programme is being rolled out in 3 phases:
||30 June 2013
||31 December 2014
Managing agents will benefit as Lloyd’s will continue to act as the primary respondent to regulatory and tax reporting queries for Lloyd’s business.
Fundamentally, the objectives are to:
- “Raise the bar” on quality across our market
- Protect managing agents from direct regulatory investigations and penalties for non-compliance
- Maintain and enhance the Lloyd’s brand and reputation
- Minimise the risk to the overall Lloyd’s licences
- Protect and potentially improve the competitive position of the platform.
