Considering global expansion? It helps to have the right partner
Multinational companies are dynamic organizations which are subject to constant change: global expansion, mergers & acquisitions, new technologies, products and services, and the current wave of international tax reform, driven by the Base Erosion & Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative, are examples of the changes currently challenging many multinational companies. As a company adapts to change, its structure, which is inherently static, often becomes increasingly misaligned, burdensome, and costly.
Expand globally with the right partners. Global expansion can be the right answer for many companies looking for growth opportunities in today’s environment. Big questions like, what does global expansion look like for my company and where do I start, can prevent companies from achieving their full potential.
Global expansion doesn’t have to be this way. Enlisting the right help is the key to success. Companies that try to go it alone often wind up paying compliance penalties, higher tax rates than necessary and waste valuable time and resources. Experienced advisors can help your company figure out the right global growth strategy by:
- Fact finding to understand your objectives and capabilities
- Conducting a feasibility analysis to understand the costs and benefits associated with expansion.
- Designing a realistic structure with your input at important inflection points,
- Implementing the new structure to form new entities, design transaction flows and “flip the switch” on the new structure and help you understand and comply with U.S. and foreign reporting requirements.
