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.
