Reporting Portal

The Reporting Portal

The Reporting Portal is a web portal created to enable applicable reporting entities report to the Financial Reporting Council on their compliance with the Nigeria Code of Corporate Governance 2018 (“NCCG 2018” or “the Code”).

A Reporting Entity

A reporting entity is any company that NCCG 2018 applies to and is required to submit a report to the FRC in accordance with the Code

For avoidance of doubt, the NCCG 2018 is applies to public companies (whether or not they are listed), private companies that are holding companies of public companies and other regulated entities, licensees operating in any field, concessioned and/or privatized companies, and regulated private companies.

One account per Reporting Entity

A reporting entity can only Sign Up or create one account for each company that they intend to submit a report for. The unique identifier for entities reporting on the Portal is the RC number of the Reporting Entity as issued by the Corporate Affairs Commission, typically contained in the Entity’s Certificate of Incorporation.

Hence, even if you belong to a group of companies or have multiple subsidiaries and affiliates that are eligible Reporting Entities, you must Sign Up, Create or Register separate accounts for each Reporting Entity.

However, one user who is responsible for reporting for multiple entities can Sign Up, Create, Register or Manage multiple separate accounts for the respective Reporting Entities that he or she has reporting responsibilities for. The system will assign such a user a separate set of credentials for each Reporting Entity Account that they Sign Up, Create or Register

Important points to note when you sign up, create account or register your company

When you register an account, you are automatically assigned the role of Admin. The System also presumes that if you are an Admin, then you may most likely also be the Creator of the Report, and as such also assigns you a Report Creator Role. If you only want to be Admin and do not intend to Create the Report, then you have to Edit your own role by removing the Creator Role from your roles and creating another user who will act as Report Creator.

The Report Creator is essentially a User who you assign the task and role of creating the report from start to finish. In every instance of reporting, the system can only recognize one Report Creator and this is highlighted on every report.

Whilst you may have multiple users designated as Report Creator, only one of such Creators can Start Creating the specific report you intend to submit to the FRC for given year. When you assign a Report Creator whom you intend to Create the particular Report you are working, you must either go to their name and Send them Credentials (or request them to login with their current credentials and start creating a report.

It is not advisable to have multiple Creators working on the same Report. Once you mix-up the roles or confuse the capacity in which each user is acting, you are highly likely to have challenges completing the process.

The Admin Role is essentially an ownership role which gives you an overriding right over other types of users or Roles in the System. As an Admin, you can:

- Create Other Users, Assign them Roles and Send Them Credentials.

- As an Admin, all the users you are creating as an Admin in the system are logged under your User, Roles and Profiles.

- You can use the search bar to search for a user or scroll through your list of users to find them

- For each user, you can View, Edit, Send Credentials or Disable the user by click the hamburger menu (a three-stacked-dots on the right end of each user’s name) on your list of users

- Only Admins and Creators have the complete set of Tabs on the System, namely: My Profile; Company Profile; User, Roles and Profiles and Change Password. Other users typically only have My Profile and Change Password. The reason for this is that only Admins and Creators can edit create or edit company information or create and edit users and user roles.

Please note however that the system makes a distinction between a user who is intended to only serve as Report Creator and one who is intended to be an Admin. Admin connotes ownership and control. Although, one implication of having only one Admin is that when that user leaves or exits your company without handing over the Admin credentials or access to their emails, you may loose access to the system, since he has the overriding right to the system. You are thus advised to have at least two Administrators, so that when one Admin user leaves, the other Admin user can access the system and perform Admin activities.

More specifically, whilst an Admin can remove or disable a Creator, a Creator cannot remove or disable an Admin and cannot even make themselves an Admin. Only and Admin can create an Admin.

If you loose access to all Admin Users created for your company, then you must contact BodAdmin to help you recover Admin credentials that will enable you Admin access to the system

Completing the checklist to start reporting

To Start Reporting, you are required to complete the checklist by meeting a set of minimum requirements to start reporting:

1. Complete Company Profile: Remember that when you were creating your company account, you only provided your company name, RC number and email. However there are other company details required for the report. This is what you do under the Complete Company Profile. When you get to Company Profile page, you will notice that some of your company information have already been captured. You are expected to click on “Edit Information” in order to edit and provide the outstanding details required.

2. Create Reviewer: You are required to create or assign a role to one of your users as a Report Reviewer. Report Reviewers essentially review completed draft reports submitted to them by Report Creators.

3. Create Two Signatories: you are required to create two signatories or designate two already existing users as signatories. Report Signatories are users who sign off on a completed report after they have been reviewed and approved.

Multiple user roles

You can assign a single user or yourself upto three roles on the system, except that you cannot serve as two signatories to a report. But you can be a Report Creator, Report Reviewer and one of the Report Signatories Required to sign the report.

Please note that you do not need to duplicate a user, or create varying profiles of the same user in order for them to serve multiple roles. All you need to assign a user multiple roles is to edit their Roles under Users, Roles and Profiles, by adding or removing additional roles from their roles. Please do not create a user multiple times just because you intend to assign them multiple roles. Do not do this even if you intend to use different emails for the same user. This is completely unnecessary.

As user with multiple roles, you do not need to sign and sign out to perform actions under your different roles. All you need is to keep checking your “My Desk” in the Dashboard screen to see what requests are queuing in your tray. At most, you could just refresh your browser in order for pending or delaying request to drop or join your “My Desk” queue for your action. You do not need new credentials to perform new roles under your account, unless the notification is delaying or the required action is not provided, in which case you can either contact BodAdmin or contact your Admin to send you credentials.

Every user on the system is assigned a unique FRC ID typically shown as example FRC-10001. Except with respect to multiple users, no user should have more than one FRC ID for the same company.

However, a user who serves single or multiple roles for multiple companies or reporting entities will have separate unique FRC IDs associated with each of the specific companies that they are acting for. This makes for effective Chinese walls and to help ensure that actions taken by a user is appropriately associated with the right company for which they are playing or intend to play those roles.

To assign multiple Roles to a User:

1. Go to User, Roles and Profiles

2. Either you Create the User by clicking “Create User” and fill out the form with the user’s details, if the do not already exist, or you search for the user from your list of users

3. If the user already exists, find the user from your list, click the hamburger menu (a three-stacked-dots on the right end of each user’s name) and then click Edit User & User Roles

4. Edit the user’s roles by adding or removing from the user’s list of roles

Returning users

A returning user is any user of the portal who has used the portal previously, whether the reference is to a company as a reporting entity that had created a report in the past, or a user who had previously accessed the system and performed any action

Every returning user of the system is presumed to already have a unique FRC ID. The FRC ID is unique to each user and never ever changes, unless a duplicate account is created for a user with a different email.

As a returning user, you are not required to complete the reporting checklist because you have already done this at the first instance of your use of the portal.

As a returning user, you do not have to create a report from scratch. You can create a report by adopting a previously created or submitted report. When you choose to create from a previous report, the system essentially makes a draft copy of everything you had created or submitted in an old report, including all of its content and attached documentation and then enables you change the reporting timelines and start editing that draft for review and sign off.

There is no difference between a report created from scratch as a new draft report and one created from a previously submitted or created report which you are adopting to revise, update and submit for a new or current year of reporting. There is also no difference in the workflow for processing that report, for review or sign off. The same way you will submit for review and follow through for sign off, is how you will process a report created from a previously created or submitted report.

To create a report from a previously created or submitted report:

1.Click on “Create Report”

2. Select “Create from a Previously Submitted Report”

3. Select which of the report from your previous report you want to create from

4. Confirm the reporting instructions

5. Select the reporting timelines you want to create for

6. Click on “Start Reporting”. Allow the system a few minutes to reproduce data and documentation contained in the report you are adopting in order to enable you edit

7. Once the data has loaded, you are basically in the same position as you would be with any other draft report and you can edit and revise and process the report.

Creating a report without completing the checklist

If you do not want to complete the Checklist before starting to create the report, you can go to your Dashboard and Start Creating your report while you come back to complete the Checklist later.

However, please note that you must create a minimum of a Reviewer and one of your signatories before the “Go To Dashboard” button can become active to enable you start reporting.

Reporting Timelines

A reporting timeline is typically once calendar year with reference to which you are creating a report of your compliance with the NCCG for your company. A reporting timeline is for example, 01 January 2001 to 31 December 2001 and you must select the full year values on the system in order for you to create a report.
