At MHA MacIntyre Hudson, we understand that to survive; your business needs to be agile, flexible and innovative to solve the problems caused by a continually evolving business environment.

New consumer behaviours, competition and business models were fundamentally reshaping the retail, leisure and hospitality and travel and tourism sectors, even before the global pandemic. These changes have been accelerated, bringing new challenges, but creating a wealth of new opportunities.

Retail & Wholesale

The shape of the retail sector has changed significantly in recent years. The traditional model that has existed for decades is in flux, as people change not only how they buy, but what they buy and where they buy it. Retailers have had to rapidly respond to the changing business environment and the complexities that come with it.

Our retail and consumer team can provide a full range of advisory, tax and accounting services to help our clients successfully develop their businesses to not only deal with the changing retail environment, but thrive in it.
