The trading industry is constantly changing, and the competition in most markets are in addition tough. The changes may be experienced as big the last years, but appear to be the beginning of a substantially changed pattern of consumer behavior. Of course, this affects the entire value chain, and therefore also large and small trading companies. The winners will be the ones who follow and adapt to the changing framework conditions in the market. New distribution channels, especially in the retail chain, are challenging but also provide opportunities. E-commerce with both shipment delivery, but also direct delivery to the consumer at door or pick-up points means that one has to reconsider options. New payment solutions also affect customers' choices. Trading companies get new features where service and quality need to be represented in several segments through the value chain, and the "mercenary spirit" must cover more fields than before to  continue to be the one that succeeds best in the industry.

We have experience through cooperation with both large, medium and small trading companies, which we assist in both retail and wholesale/importers. The experience extends from classical audit and advisory services, to assistance in buying, selling, contract formations etc. (see below). In addition to auditing, we have our own Law department and Transaction Support department that contributes with their experience and knowledge.
