A framework for good

Afterpay is committed to good governance, transparency and accountability. The Board believes this is essential for the long term performance and sustainability of the business, and to protect and enhance the interests of shareholders and other stakeholders.

Corporate Governance

  • Afterpay’s governance framework plays an important role in helping the business deliver on its strategy. It provides the structure through which business objectives are set, performance is monitored, and risks are managed. It includes a framework for decision-making across the business and provides guidance on the standards of behaviour expected of Afterpay’s people.

    The 2020 Corporate Governance Statement describes Afterpay’s corporate governance framework and main governance practices for the financial year ended 30 June 2020. These arrangements comply with the 3rd edition of the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations, except where indicated in the statement. The statement, together with Afterpay’s ASX Appendix 4G, which is a checklist cross-referencing the ASX Principles and Recommendations to the relevant disclosures in the statement, FY20 Annual Report and website, was lodged with the ASX on 27 August 2020.

    Afterpay will report against the 4th edition of the ASX Principles and Recommendations for the financial year ending 30 June 2021.
