Anti-bribery and corruption
The RSM network is one of the largest networks of independent accounting and consulting firms worldwide and we pride ourselves on our reputation for acting fairly and ethically wherever we do business. Our reputation is built on our values as a network of firms, the values of our employees and our collective commitment to acting with integrity throughout our network.
RSM condemns corruption in all its forms and we will not tolerate it in the businesses of our member firms or in those we do business with.
Our own internal codes of conduct set out in detail how we as an organisation should behave. In dealing with any of our business partners and clients, we expect you to have in place your own procedures to address the risk of bribery and corruption and that your organisation (as well as those working for it) will be at all times compliant with relevant anti-bribery legislation.
If you have any questions regarding our terms and conditions, please contact the RSM International Limited Executive Office at: 50 Cannon Street, London, EC4N 6JJ.
