Along with increased opportunities, the single European market has also brought more competition and changes in tax, company law and manufacturing standards. Many small and medium-sized companies have realised that they are now in a domestic market which contains 450 million people. ConsultingHouse is the expert in the preparation of a strategy for Europe.
It is not only UK companies which will have increased business opportunities - rival businesses in the rest of Europe will be seeking new customers. Even if a company decides not to expand into Europe, it must be prepared to keep existing customers in the face of increasing competition. We can help with long-term development plans.
There is a great deal of information coming from the European Commission and from our own Government about the single market and it can be difficult to keep up with it all. We can advise on existing and prospective legislation affecting a business. We can also find out about assistance available from the UK Government and the Commission.
