Expanding Overseas

Expanding overseas brings many new challenges. You’ll need to consider different tax and legal structures, banking systems, employment laws and import/export regulations. Developing countries are changing fast in these areas, bringing sometimes unforeseen business costs into play.

If you’ve decided to expand overseas, on-the-ground international business experts are vital – but how do you know who to trust?
