British forensic audit firm which investigates Malawi’s worse financial scandal dubbed ‘cashgate’, changed its name and is now called RSM, uniting under a single common brand with RSM audit, tax and consulting firms across the world.
Former president Joyce Banda ordered an audit which, RSM (formerly Baker Tilly UK), undertook between April and September 2013 and established that about K24 billion was siphoned from public coffers through dubious payments, inflated invoices and goods or services never rendered. –
RSM International is the seventh largest global network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms.
“Uniting under a common brand presents a unique opportunity for RSM to truly become the first choice adviser to middle market leaders, globally,” said Laurence Longe, RSM’s UK Managing Partner.
The auditing firm says though they have adopted the RSM name, they are staying “true to our roots and we are committed to serving the needs of all of our clients both nationally and internationally.”
Clients using an RSM firm will now have much greater confidence that they will receive the same high quality of professional service for their audit, tax and consulting needs wherever they do business in the world, the firm said
“By coming together under a common brand, we will be better able to draw on local knowledge and global expertise from across the network and this will help us to help our clients be successful wherever and whenever they expand the international reach of their business.”
RSM is also launching a redesigned website and updating its Twiitter handle to @rsmuk.
