As a result of increasing demand in the APAC region, in 2019 Prinova Europe Ltd established a subsidiary in Australia that now services Australia and New Zealand.

The new operation helps the company supply ANZ markets with bespoke nutritional premixes from its China facility, with over 2,000 ingredients in categories ranging from vitamins and amino acids to essential oils and aroma chemicals supported by warehouses in ANZ. Prinova currently has more than 35 strategically located facilities worldwide. As a single-source partner offering ingredients, custom services, and market expertise, the company adds value at every step of a product’s lifecycle.

Why were RSM engaged? Prinova Australia was established without a dedicated finance team and without local knowledge and expertise. RSM was engaged to assist the European accounting team with local Australian compliance and payroll matters.

Cross border considerations (operations in 26 countries) RSM performs an annual review of the Prinova group including a review of international related party dealings and implications of changes to both Australian and international taxation rules.
