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.
Technology, data security, the supply chain and competitor ‘price wars’ are causing retailers to review their business models and look for efficiencies to ensure that business forecasts are achieved. 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.
From growing entrepreneurial OMBs to household names, we’ve been advising and guiding accounting and business strategy in the retail sector for many years. We have helped clients grow, diversify and expand internationally.
