Our business integrity

Reporting and recording Company data

Our business relies on true, fair, timely and accurate record-keeping to support our decision-making, protect our reputation, promote operational efficiency and meet legal and regulatory obligations.

What does this mean for JTI?

Company records are any documents and data created or recorded in the course of our business operations and include financial and operational data, personal and confidential data, records of meetings, business plans, forecasts and analyses.

Business and financial records are essential to our business operations and our engagement with our shareholders, business partners, governments and other stakeholders.

What does this mean to me as an employee?

I ensure that records are kept confidential, secure and retrievable and respect applicable laws and regulations when maintaining and disposing of them.

If I am involved in Company financial reporting or record-keeping, I comply with generally accepted accounting principles and ensure that records are accurate, secure and appropriately documented.

If I have made a reporting error or have failed to report something that could undermine the integrity and reliability of Company records, I immediately report it to the Finance Director, Corporate Controller or my line manager.

What situations could this apply to?

Here are some examples of financial-related reporting concerns:

  • Reporting revenues that have not been earned or expenses that have not been incurred.
  • Failure to make accruals for expenses incurred in the current reporting year.
