In a global marketplace transitioning towards net zero carbon emissions targets, our clients value working with metals and mining finance experts who offer strong international capabilities combined with specialist sector expertise.
Whilst ongoing global recovery is anticipated to encourage increased production levels, metals and mining companies will be subject to the individual market dynamics of the countries in which they operate. This means the outlook for most metals is generally looking more positive, but a level of uncertainty and market volatility remains.
Drawing on our international network and capabilities, our sector specialists – which includes teams of mining accountants and experts within metals and mining finance – can help you to mitigate against risks and challenges and take advantage of opportunities presented by a changing market.
We understand all the relevant requirements needed with any accounting for mining companies, as well as the new and old financial, operational and regulatory issues impacting the sector. This allows us to offer practical and relevant solutions to help your business succeed.
We can help you overcome challenges and maximise opportunities in the following key areas:
- Access to funding and M&A: We have significant experience of capital markets transactions in the mining and metals sector combined with a deep understanding of the technical requirements involved, including liaison with competent persons and other specialists. Our metals and mining finance modelling team undertake model audit and due diligence assignments for lenders and developers.
- International tax: Our metals and mining accountants help clients with international operations to maximise the most efficient corporate tax structure for a global resources group, and ensure the operation of good financial controls when dealing with remote operational locations.
- Compliance: We help clients review and implement appropriate systems that are compliant with the UK Bribery Act and the Modern Slavery Act. We provide a pragmatic and collaborative audit. In addition, we use our international network to tailor the audit flexibly and effectively to the geographies and decision makers of our mining and metals clients.
- Governance: We understand the necessary board procedures and how best practice corporate governance can work for the sector. With investors focusing on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors, our metals and mining finance experts advise our clients on their ESG profile, including the new TCFD reporting requirements which are particularly relevant to the sector.
