Many organisations generate revenues through royalty, licensing and similar commercial arrangements. They can also receive discounts, rebates and incentive payments via preferred customer and volume-linked arrangements.
Under these arrangements, payments and receipts are often based on self-declarations that are difficult to monitor and verify. Exercising financial control over these relationships can be difficult. Organisations can be vulnerable to the poor controls and inappropriate business practices of others.
