Our team of international business consultants can help you take your business overseas for the first time, expand internationally or improve your current international operations. With the combined expertise of RSM colleagues in over 120 countries worldwide, contact us today to discuss how we can support with your global business strategy.

Some overseas jurisdictions are favourable for UK businesses, though they can vary from industry to industry. A vital part of knowing how to expand internationally involves understanding how international business law will affect operations overseas. Although VAT, sales taxes, customs duties, and employment registrations are key considerations, tax is just one of the factors to consider. You’ll also need to understand the politics, currency, cultural customs, and language considerations of your market.

Expanding to the UK

The UK is an attractive place for foreign direct investment (FDI) providing a springboard into Europe. Correct set up is vital when businesses invest in the UK. 

There are many challenges to navigate when considering expansion into UK markets through mergers and acquisitions, investment expansion or by setting up a new UK-based team. 

Our FDI and financial due diligence specialists will help you understand and mitigate potential risks, highlighting opportunities to create value and make your expansion a success.

Expanding internationally

Our global-minded experts understand exactly what you’ll need to consider to ensure you get your global expansion plan right, first time.

We help ambitious, rapidly expanding UK businesses reach their full potential through international business development. 

We understand that navigating overseas regulations can be incredibly daunting; maximising tax efficiency without overcomplicating the process is no easy task and staying compliant when you have globally mobile employees can be complex and time-consuming.

Global operations management

International operations management is challenging to get right and needs continuous review. 

From changing trade relations, tariff barriers and supply network pressures through to geopolitical issues, and the climate emergency, successful international businesses need to adapt quickly. We can help you to navigate ever-changing global markets and economies.

Our experienced team can help shape your international operations management strategy to minimise risks.
