Brexit is causing businesses around the world to reconsider their international strategies, which is why Reanda UK Limited (Reanda UK), a wholly owned subsidiary of top 100 accountancy firm Grunberg & Co Limited, has spoken to fellow professionals at a five day conference in Shanghai.
Launched in 2016, Reanda UK has been forging new relationships with fellow accountancy practices around the world in more than 30 nations, as part of its wider association with Reanda International Network– a leading global network of accountants, consisting of more than 100 offices, with origins in China.
It was at this organisation’s Annual conference, earlier this month, which Reanda UK attended to share its expertise on inward and outward investment in the UK.
Carrying the UK Government’s own slogan ‘Open for Business’, Reanda UK’s Managing Partner Robert Bean addressed a crowd of delegates at the conference about the business and tax benefits of not only working and investing with businesses in the UK, but encouraging other firms to set up UK businesses.
His talk, a highlight of the Reanda International Network Global Partners Conference, which was held at the Sheraton Waigaoqiao Hotel in Shanghai , was part of a wider working week of events, which also included a gala dinner, important meetings of the network’s M&A and International Tax panels and tours of successful Chinese businesses.
Robert was also part of a delegation welcoming several new members to the Reanda International Network, which included new firms from Portugal, Italy, Greece and Romania.
Speaking after the conference, Robert said: “This year’s conference was really enlightening and it was fantastic to meet so many of our fellow members.
“There was a lot of interest in the UK and of course the issue of Brexit, but the news on this front definitely wasn’t negative and it is clear that businesses around the world can see the distinct benefits of investing in and entering the UK market.
“More importantly it is good to see that more European firms are joining Reanda International, which is one of the fastest growing global networks of accountants and professionals.”
In the last year, Reanda UK has hosted a number of delegations to the UK, including visits from firms in Cyprus and other European nations.
Robert said: “Our membership of Reanda International has already proved very fruitful and we have made a number of new overseas connections in the last 12 months, which we hope will lead to new work in a number of countries and support our existing clients as they look to export or seek investment from foreign investors.”
Next year, Reanda UK has plans to expand its international influence with the inclusion of new services and a dedicated China desk to improve communication and deal-making with the world’s second-largest economy.
