Developing global advisor talent

Our innovative global mobility program provides unique, real-world experiences to build the advisory skills of RSM professionals across RSM’s global network. Recently, one of our audit personnel on assignment to Hong Kong served as an extension of both the RSM US and RSM Hong Kong teams while working on an audit with the management of a company with Hong Kong operations. The expatriate was in a unique position to facilitate communication, bridge cultural differences and work across time zones to successfully assist with completing the audit. We also host assignments in the United States for RSM International firms, thereby bringing country-specific knowledge to clients in key U.S. markets. 

Leveraging innovation and digital solutions across our global organization

RSM continues to invest heavily in the enhancement and development of new and existing services on a global basis, as well as in internal applications and processes, through the utilization of new digital technologies. Guiding this effort is RSM International’s global chief innovation officer and a global digital advisory committee comprised of innovation specialists from RSM firms worldwide. 

A seamless approach to global service

Leveraging a leading international network of professionals

Middle market companies that are internationally active need a trusted advisor who understands how to navigate the complexities of doing business globally. This advisor should:
  • Understand how to navigate cultural and language differences
  • Leverage established relationships and a globally experienced workforce
  • Possess multicountry technical expertise
  • Access the resources of a multinational network embedded throughout the world’s global markets
RSM’s global focus informs highly personalized, relevant and seamless client experiences, regardless of time zones or international borders.

Ensuring high-quality client experiences

We provide insights and clarity to global economic, business and industry issues relevant to your business needs. This year’s examples were wide-ranging, and included COVID-19, Brexit, United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement opportunities, and the impact of trade tensions and tariffs.
Our global methodologies ensure consistency and quality around the world. These include leveraging best business practices and common development tools for all RSM firms to provide a consistent RSM experience, and improve client satisfaction. We continue to expand our global tax, audit and consulting service capabilities for middle market companies. 
An example is the launch of RSM Orb, a new global audit methodology and supporting platform that scales according to client complexity and circumstance. The methodology is deployed across RSM’s global network to focus on client risk and provide deeper critical insights.
Our global compliance and reporting services assist clients in managing and coordinating complex and diverse regulatory requirements from country to country through a centralized engagement team. This past year, we gave clients peace of mind that their foreign filing obligations were met, and mitigated the risks of missed deadlines and penalties with a convenient and cost-effective delivery system.
As COVID-19 rapidly spread around the world, RSM was able to continue to provide seamless service through our global teams using our robust technology and methodologies even when we could not physically be together.

Advising companies on global expansion, relocation or consolidation

RSM’s global expansion advisory services team advises clients on engaging in successful expansions, relocations or consolidations of global operations. We guide business leaders through decision-making, prioritization and execution of a company’s global expansion plans. We take a phased approach to working with clients considering expansion into new global markets by focusing on strategic investment, acquisition planning, talent and resource considerations, site selection and geopolitical changes.

Country specialists serve foreign direct investors and ease foreign market access

We continue to be a dominant firm for middle market foreign direct investors, leveraging our global business advisory capabilities and country specialists to provide critical support for inbound and outbound FDI activity. 
RSM’s country desks provide a deep understanding of FDI while helping clients navigate business, regulatory and cultural issues when entering new markets. Based in the United States, these professionals provide answers and perspectives on inbound and outbound business opportunities, and offer cross-border knowledge across our audit, tax and consulting services. We have dedicated desks for China, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
This year, our country desks reached out to RSM International firms to assist U.S. companies in expanding their global presence. This included insightful solutions for addressing invoicing and excise tax reporting requirements, while navigating evolving regulatory environments. 

Trade advisory services

Globally active middle market businesses face a variety of trade and tariff obligations. With many countries changing their import and export regulations, it can be challenging to manage activities in multiple jurisdictions, especially without technical expertise on staff. Our trade advisory professionals continue to assist with strategic planning to identify fiscal cash savings, reduce the risk profile of supply chain processes, and support operational efficiencies.
