Truly multi-professional Multi-disciplinary professional services in the UK and across the world Rödl & Partner aims to help our clients' businesses succeed through all phases of their lifecycle. We tailor our services to provide effective and efficient solutions to meet your needs and to address your business issues. Our international footprint allows us to advise our clients’ international operations with a consistently high quality of service. Tax advisory Tax legislation is constantly changing. These changes make it difficult for businesses to take advantage of opportunities that are available to reduce their tax liabilities. We provide corporate tax advisory services tailored to the needs of our clients. We aim to reduce your tax burden whilst ensuring full compliance with the law. Through our international office network we also advise clients on tax issues arising from cross border transactions. Growing your business Against the back-drop of the current worldwide economic down-turn, some companies are well placed to take advantage of the unprecedented opportunities that arise for buying businesses at competitive prices. Our team has extensive experience of supporting clients through this acquisition process. We can provide a high-level review of the target business and perform full-scope financial, tax and legal due diligence on your target. We tailor our services to meet the precise requirements of our clients on each individual project. Supply chain cost management All businesses are currently thinking about reducing their cost base and managing their costs. We can help our clients review their existing supplier arrangements and terms of business, and we can work with you to maximise potential cost savings.

Working capital management Proactively managing your business cash flow is always an important activity, and in these challenging economic times it has taken on an even greater importance. We help our clients improve their cash flow through assessing and improving their working capital management techniques. The importance of cash flow forecasting is even more significant in the current climate to allow businesses to identify times of low headroom, so that mitigating action can be taken in a timely manner. Business process outsourcing We provide management accounts production services to clients that provides then with high quality information on a timely basis, helping to keep their cost base as low as possible. We offer an outsourced payroll service for all sizes of payroll, covering all aspects of compliance with HMRC requirements, including dealing with all tax year end filing matters and international personal tax issues. Business process „health check” A strong system of internal control is vital to the success of all organisations. This is particularly important in a downturn, where research shows that the incidence of employee fraud is likely to increase. We can perform a comprehensive review of your business and accounting processes and provide workable solutions to improve your organisation’s control environment, and to reduce the risk of financial loss as a result of fraud.
