WORKING WITH OVERSEAS PARENT COMPANIES. WORKING WITH UK SUBSIDIARIES

We get why the UK is an attractive home to a growing number of subsidiaries of overseas companies. It offers a significant consumer market with an international reputation as a great place to do business.

We also understand that the parent company will want an experienced auditor that understands regulatory compliance not just in the UK but how it applies to them. Communication and coordination is key particularly when working across time zones. The use of technology and secure data sharing with the potential complexities relating to transfer pricing and intracompany transactions are an important consideration.

STUART, JAN 2024

“Great to have a personal relationship with the whole team. Always willing to help. Sometimes a little slow to respond on some issues (but then again so are we). Audit team are brilliant, bar audits far to long now owing to the amount of sample data we have to provide, which is hard when you have a small team and limited time.”

DAVID, OCT 2023

“Good insights provided. Nice team to deal with. Need more consistency of team members and where this is not possible a better handover should be provided to new members.
