UNDERSTANDING EUROPE

Your passport to trade

The European Union is your passport into one of the most important free-trade zones on the planet. With 28 member states*, more than 20 million SMEs and over 500 million consumers, it offers your business a huge market of potential customers and suppliers.

RSM’s strength across the EU – combined with our global reach – means we’re ideally placed to help your business grow both in Europe and internationally.

We understand that Europe isn’t one region. Different economies are developing at different rates, and where there is risk, there is also opportunity. We can help you navigate the risks involved in the varying currencies, jurisdictions and legislation across different countries – and take full advantage of the countless opportunities on offer.

These opportunities vary from new tax structures and complex incentive schemes to lower bureaucratic hurdles for doing business in certain countries.

Mid-market organisations make up a large majority of the businesses across Europe, and are proving to be the engines for growth and the backbone of recovery. In this increasingly dynamic financial landscape, we will be your trusted adviser, understanding your priorities and helping you plot your path to future success.

One year on from Brexit

20 July 2017
When the UK voted to end its membership of the European Union, a new word ’Brexit’ entered the international lexicon. In a brief period of time, this word has become synonymous with political and economic uncertainty. With Brexit negotiations finally underway, neither the UK nor the EU are any closer to establishing what the final outcome will be. These uncertainties therefore continue to erode business confidence and impact business activity.

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.
