Trusted first-choice advisor to middle market companies globally

RSM provides relevant global insights on economic, business and industry issues to address clients’ business needs. This includes the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brexit, global tax structures, global mobility, and tariffs and trade. We continue to expand our global tax, audit and consulting service capabilities to help middle market companies understand and adapt to global and regional issues.

Global methodologies ensure consistency and quality throughout RSM’s international network. This includes leveraging best practices and common tools for all RSM firms to provide a consistent RSM experience. One example is RSM Orb, a 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.

Globally active companies face significant and growing compliance challenges. Our global compliance and reporting services help clients manage their compliance and reporting needs through one global relationship leader, with support from a dedicated U.S.-based team and a robust global network. 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.

RSM’s global expansion 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 global expansion plans.
