Shifting economic trends, finicky shoppers, and consolidation in the retail industry have retailers adjusting their business models, whether by selling U.S. brands overseas or investing more in operations to thwart cybersecurity.
BDO’s Consumer Business Practice helps businesses compete in a marketplace undergoing transformation, through industry-specific knowledge regarding regulatory, reporting, and complicated tax requirements – all of which vary widely by state and by country. In 2010, BDO was the first major accounting firm to launch a retail- and consumer-focused blog and Twitter feed, and we continue to offer thought leadership on news and trends that impact the sector.
More and more shoppers are using mobile devices to make their purchases, and BDO offers guidance to companies on how to best take advantage of the growing trend. BDO has assisted many retailers on their most important endeavors, whether by offering guidance on accessing capital, expanding operations, or how best to maximize return for investors.
