More about Russell Bedford International

Expertise and experience, around the world

At Russell Bedford International, we specialise in helping companies meet the challenges that international business expansion presents. Since 1983, our worldwide network of accountancy firms has provided financial expertise and business consultancy to companies within many different markets and industries.

Business without boundaries

The commercial expertise we offer is complemented by a thorough understanding of the local business environment. A process such as registering a new company may, for instance, be perfectly straightforward in one country, but complex and time consuming in another. This combination of the technical and the practical enables Russell Bedford International to help businesses move smoothly and successfully into the global marketplace.

With member firms operating all over the world, the service we offer is truly global. But there's more to it than geography. Our members are well-established with excellent reputations, and you can be confident of exceptionally high professional standards across the world. They are also well placed to arrange introductions to other professionals whose skills and resources are complementary, such as lawyers or bankers.

Key issues - It's our job to unlock them

  • Business compliance
  • Local taxation
  • Financial barriers to trade
  • Local business law and practice
  • Complex commercial environments
  • Industrial and commercial restrictions
  • Foreign exchange regulation.

It's one to one - and that's the difference

The Russell Bedford International approach is based on strong, professional relationships.

You will have a personal adviser whose brief is to gain a clear understanding of your commercial objectives and to introduce you to a principal of the relevant firm or firms overseas. This small team will maintain close contact with you from the early planning stages right through to completion.

Our member firms communicate closely, frequently and effectively, and this brings tangible benefits to clients in terms of the speed, quality and delivery of information.

Giving you the global edge

  • Access to worldwide network of firms with a wealth of practical commercial experience
  • Access to experts with the right skills, in the right place
  • Professional, personal service based on strong and established relationships
  • An understanding of the big picture and detailed local knowledge
  • Rapid exchange of information
  • Wide range of business sector experience
  • Prompt, quality service.
