The Finance and Accounting Sector is a center of excellence (CoE) that provides services in areas that require a high degree of professionalism in the finance and accounting field within the Panasonic Group. We handle operations involving accounting, finance, tax affairs, internal systems, accounting operation reforms, audits, and internal control. We also have functions to develop the skills of about 6,000 finance and accounting employees on a global basis.
Our roles, which involve the implementation of "finance and accounting for management," have been part of our coherent mission since the foundation of Panasonic. The first is related to our contribution through institutional accounting, management accounting, business management, and management recommendations as the network of nerves underpinning autonomous management. The second involves internal check functions as the nucleus of group-wide internal governance. Furthermore, we are also focusing on improving the productivity and effectiveness of general accounting operations ranging from specialized practical operations handled by finance and accounting employees to the recording of expenses handled by all employees.
In partnership with the finance and accounting employees of Panasonic Holdings Corporation and operating companies, we will support the resolution of issues in specialized fields and provide high value-added solutions with agility by using digital technologies aiming to ensure that business divisions enhance competitiveness and contribute to society.
