Accurate Reporting & Accounting
We create and report true and fair financial and non-financial information
Data integrity is key to our business.
We ensure that any data, information or records which we create, or for which we are responsible, are true and fair. These can take many forms, ranging from the Roche Annual and Finance Reports, research and development data, to our personal travel and expense claims or even our e-mails.
Roche must comply with applicable laws, internal accounting and reporting guidelines and external financial and non-financial reporting standards and ensure that the information it supplies to its stakeholders, such as equity and debt investors, as well as auditors, regulatory agencies and government bodies provides a true and fair view of its financial situation.
We must never make a false or misleading statement or entry in any report, publication record or expense claim.
Falsifying records and accounts or misrepresenting facts may constitute fraud. In addition to Roche’s liability as a company, employees who engage in such illegal behaviour may be subject to severe penalties.
