Going public

Make the most of our expertise, experience and extensive network to ensure your going public is a success, whatever the size and sector of your business and wherever you intend to float.

As reporting accountants, we are able to guide you through every step of the flotation process. This applies whether you decide to float on the Official List (either Standard or Premium), AIM or ISDX.  We can also act as reporting accountants on various overseas stock exchanges, and through our extensive RSM International network we can team up with local accountancy professionals almost anywhere in the world.

Our services include:

  • acting as reporting accountants (including reporting on public financial information, due diligence, working capital reviews and review of financial systems and controls);
  • providing advice on preparing for flotation, including financial structuring, taxation (both national and international), financial projections, financial control systems and accounting policies;
  • consulting on share option schemes and/or other director/employer benefit advice; and
  • offering on-going audit and taxation advice.

We are known for our specialism in the complex VCT and EIS legislation. With the correct planning and advice, these schemes can greatly assist fundraising for smaller AIM companies.

We also have strong relationships across the industry and can introduce you to the various other advisers that will be integral to the flotation process, eg nominated advisers, brokers, lawyers, public relations consultants, etc.

RSM is a leading adviser to the AIM market, and so far we have worked on over 300 capital market transactions for companies of many sizes and sectors across the globe.

We’d be delighted to discuss our services with you, so please contact Diane Craig to find out how we can help your organisation.
