Process mapping outlines the flow of activities, with responsibilities and required standards, to complete a business process. A flow chart shows the steps taken and the decisions made which may affect the outcome of the task. This is supported by more detailed step by step processes which deal with more detail about how things are done, and the required standards.
Why use Process Mapping?
Process mapping gives you control over ensuring that things are done in a consistent way. It helps you support your teams in doing their jobs efficiently by understanding the bottlenecks that can cause delays in the process and as a result you may be able to delegate some of the decision making that is causing these holds ups. During an HMRC audit, having documented processes will demonstrate that you proactively manage compliance and that you have a documented solution should things go wrong. And finally having well-documented “as-is” processes will help when it comes to defining any changes needed for efficiency or compliance reasons.
