Technology is continuing to drive dramatic changes in consumer behaviour and buying patterns.
UHY member firms work with clients across the retail, consumer products and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector to deal with the challenges and to embrace new ways of doing business.
Increasing levels of disposable income in many parts of the world are also opening up significant opportunities for retailers and brands to move into new markets which offer huge growth potential.
The revolution in online retailing has enabled businesses to access millions of potential new customers faster and with less investment than ever before.
Clients are able to tap into the local market knowledge and experience provided by UHY member firms across the world.
In addition to core accountancy services, experts are also able to provide sector-specific advice in areas such as retail property acquisition, disposal and lease negotiation.
Member firms also work with clients on projects such as online development and fulfilment, stock loss control and fraud prevention.
PLANNING FOR GROWTH
In a sector which is seeing significant merger and acquisition activity – particularly among major retail chains and brands – our member firms help many clients plan acquisition or disposal strategies.
As well as identifying potential targets or purchasers, our experts are able to provide advice on raising capital and deal planning.
The global reach of the UHY network means clients are both aware of and well-placed to respond to changing trends in global consumer behaviour.
