Our in-depth understanding of what works within an organisation’s culture allows us to deliver creative solutions tailored for each client’s unique objectives.
We can carry out a gap analysis against the following codes:
- UK Corporate Governance Code;
- QCA Corporate Governance Code;
- Wates Corporate Governance Principles;
- Charity Governance Code;
- Sports Governance Code;
- Nolan principles; and
- National Housing Federation Governance Code.
The robust gap analysis would involve listing out each of the provisions and/or principles of the code relevant to the code your company has chosen to comply with. We will carry out an analysis of how you comply with the code or areas of non-compliance.
This would include:
- Where you are now;
- Identifying the gaps; and
- What action is needed to achieve compliance.
This will involve gathering evidence of the current state of compliance with the code and recommendations on areas of improvement to fully comply or where there are any non-compliance gaps, an action plan of what is required to fill the gaps.
We can also assist in preparing a board paper on code compliance with recommendations on next steps on what is required from the board to fully comply.
When codes are refreshed we can provide an analysis of the changes from the old and new code and provide recommendations for compliance including if there are any gaps.
We can also apply the same gap analysis principles to any other code where there is a compliance requirement.
Our experienced team of Governance Professionals have all held complex in-house roles with over 175 years combined experience. We have worked with clients of various sizes to assist with governance code compliance and deliver creative solutions tailored for each client’s needs and objectives.
We are equipped with the practical know-how to ensure your corporate governance code compliance will be much more than just achieving minimal requirements.
We are uniquely positioned to assist boards, fellow Governance Professionals, and Company Secretaries with code compliance that can deliver efficiencies and enhanced decision making.

“Just WOW! Beyond Governance came in at short notice and provided us with support for our AGM at a challenging time for us. Beyond Governance over delivered in every way; they were a sounding board for me, and exceptionally safe pair of hands and a pleasure to work with. Nothing was too much trouble, they were my eyes and ears on the ground and identified ‘pinch points’ before they became a problem; something only experts of many years can do. Most of all their support alleviated pressure points in my role enabling me to focus on other pressing matters.
