UNDERSTANDING AFRICA

Turn a footprint into a foothold

International companies cannot afford to ignore the possibility of expanding in Africa. Africa’s economic performance over the past decade has outstripped any other period. It is now the second fastest growing region in the world with a rapidly expanding consumer base that is highly attractive to foreign investors.

As business in Africa is developing, so is RSM’s representation across the continent. Thanks to our local knowledge combined with the strength of the global RSM network, we are able to help you identify the opportunities that can drive your business forward. 

Medium-sized businesses have an advantage over larger organisations as they are able to act more nimbly, and are often subject to fewer restrictions when they set up and operate in Africa. 

We offer a full range of services that can help you harness the myriad of investment opportunities that are opening up. In addition to audit and tax services, we are also seeing rising demand for risk advisory services, which enable organisations to meet compliance requirements while protecting their valuable assets.

If you’re aiming to turn a footprint in Africa into a foothold, we want to be your trusted adviser. Let us help you navigate the risks and challenges in this fast-growing, resource-rich land of opportunity.

Mapping out your approach to BEPS

16 October 2017
A guest blog by Rob Mander, International Tax Services, RSM . The international tax systems of the last decade haven’t kept up with the changing nature and pace of multinational groups of companies. In a world where so much business is conducted across borders, it is important that legislation and, more specifically, tax authorities have sufficient sight of the global allocation of income within multinational organisations.

Innovation through collaboration

Successful companies, particularly those in a growth phase, share a common characteristic: the dedication and commitment of their employees. 

The gig economy isn’t holding back and the middle market shouldn’t either

29 August 2017
With companies like Deliveroo and Uber bedding into our lives, the gig economy has revolutionised the way people are working and therefore the way workplaces are structured. Middle market businesses need stay ahead of the curve, using their strengths to their advantage where large corporations can’t, by reacting and revisiting their business practices to adhere to this new way of working.

Cyber threat has no borders

15 May 2017
The ransomware cyber-attack that took place in May 2017 was unprecedented in scale and affected more that 230,000 computers in 150 countries. The indiscriminate attack on hospitals and government agencies exploited known vulnerabilities in old systems of Microsoft Windows operating systems. Cyber security now supersedes all technology risks for businesses, and this attack shows many have not yet responded to the threat. Some markets boast sophisticated technology and regulations, while others have restricted access to digital infrastructure. No matter where you look, however, there is one constant. In the arms race between cyber criminals and experts, neither party ever draws far ahead.

5 key considerations for effective business interruption coverage

28 April 2017
Most key business processes are now automated and built on technology. Consequently, disruptions from a cyberattack can lead to significant lost sales and productivity, recovery costs and reputational harm. Accounting for business interruption costs is almost as important as mitigating the breach itself, especially as exposure is only expected to increase in the future.
