The FD verdict: Is exporting unnecessarily onerous for FDs

Taking your products or services abroad is a great way of building a business once the domestic market has been exhausted.

The internet and rise of ecommerce has made exporting more accessible than ever before, but we want to find out if businesses and FDs still find compliance difficult to handle.

Recent research from KPMG and YouGov finds that complex legal regimes, lack of networks with overseas organisations and lack of tax incentives are the main obstacles to exporting.

Dealing with foreign currencies, varying business rates and different payment methods can also be a minefield. So, in our latest Real FD weekly survey, we’re asking the simple question of whether this kind of compliance is too much.

Real FD: Live is the definitive conference for finance directors in growing companies. The event brings together over 150 finance professionals, investors and NEDs, for a day of no-holds-barred debate and problem sharing.This conference will take place on February 24 2015 at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington, London.
