The CommLaw Group’s Comprehensive Compliance Methodology
The communications lawyers at The CommLaw Group recognize that carriers entering or operating in the communications services industry are confronted with a multitude of diverse compliance issues, both regulatory and taxation.
New entrants and even established businesses with less than ideal compliance records must achieve an acceptable level of regulatory and tax compliance. This entails pursuing governmental licenses, registrations and authorizations, identifying and correcting deficiencies, and taking other measures to ensure a company is well positioned to maintain compliance in the future.
Achieving a comfortable level of compliance often starts with an audit and analysis to determine the proper regulatory classification of a company's business and services; in this day of technological convergence and regulatory uncertainty, knowing what services are provided and how those service are regulated and taxed by the respective governmental bodies is a critical first step.
But the responsibilities of regulated communications service providers do not end upon achieving compliance. Once obtained, compliance must be maintained through a seemingly endless array of administrative burdens, including reporting, filing and fee remittances for both regulatory and tax purposes.
Determining the scope of a company's compliance obligations, identifying lawful methods of mitigating compliance burdens, and implementing compliance measures is one of The CommLaw Group's unique skills. And through The Commpliance Group, our compliance consulting affiliate, we provide a cost-effective, one-stop solution designed to meet all of your regulatory and tax compliance maintenance needs.
