We have launched a new international service for companies seeking guidance on overseas trade.
Kreston Duncan & Toplis will build on our existing international business services and our membership of the Kreston International network of accounting firms. Kreston International is the 13th largest accounting network in the world, encompassing 23,000 team members in 113 countries across six continents.
We have become a key member of the Kreston network in recent years, with our managing director, Adrian Reynolds joining the organisation’s world board in 2018.
Kreston Duncan & Toplis will be led by our Head of Tax Projects, Mark Taylor who also leads Kreston International’s Global Tax Group.
Our team already works with clients that are active in 44 countries around the world, including in America, Singapore, Hong Kong, Jersey and France. Under the new Kreston Duncan & Toplis brand, our international team will work with organisations looking to expand overseas and explore new market opportunities. We will also work with Kreston International colleagues whose clients want to invest in the UK and particularly the East Midlands.
“There really are new horizons to explore as we move to becoming a more global Britain. With our trading relationships with countries around the world changing, there are huge opportunities for a wide range of businesses, but expert advice and guidance has never been more important.
“International exports account for around 7% of business income in the East Midlands and this was increasing prior to the pandemic. Clearly, coronavirus and Brexit have changed the way many companies must operate, but in spite of some immediate challenges, the time is right for organisations to look to expand overseas.
“Through our own team of more than 400 experts in accountancy, business advice, tax, payroll, HR, IT and legal services, in addition to our Kreston colleagues all over the world, we can help businesses to connect to new markets, manage the way they trade with existing markets and grow their business on a global level.
“Kreston Duncan & Toplis represents one of the boldest steps in our company’s history as we connect businesses across continents. Whether it’s in supporting businesses based outside the UK looking to inwardly invest, or vice versa, there are many ways we can help make international trading a great success.”
