Operating in a complex environment

Ecommerce and global business focus

While defining an eCommerce business is relatively simple, the range of business models continues to grow.

Whether your business operates using a; fulfilment model, an online platform, a subscription-based model or an online-offline distribution model – the main issues remain the same – the fundamental focus on planning and structuring for digital enablement and your trading environment.

Other building blocks of business such as product/services, clients, resources, finance and processes also have to be considered. The global nature of the business also requires an awareness of consumer protection policies, direct and indirect taxation and cross border transactions.

Whether starting an eCommerce business from scratch or adapting your current business to have a greater presence on line or globally, the issues surrounding your business are complex and constantly changing.

While globally there remains conjecture on the exact definition, common to all eCommerce businesses is that they include digitally enabled purchase transactions instigated through the ordering method, not the characteristics of the products purchased, the parties involved, the mode of payment or the delivery channel.

The order for the product or the services is received and the commitment to purchase is made digitally. It’s not only important to have a great product, it’s essential that the ability to access, understand and order the product is second to none.

How can we help?

Our range of services are tailored specifically for eCommerce and growing businesses and
focus on aligning the various sector of your business through: 

Whether you’re starting out or an existing business who wants to expand into E-Commerce, a solid strategy that is specifically targeted to your business, the Ecommerce model you’re selling through and your goals provides a strong framework for success and sustainability.
Understanding how your business works, engages with clients and the specific capability required reduces the risk of blow outs in time, cost and resources.
As your products and services will be sold to customers around the globe, structuring ensures that you and your assets are protected.
Cross border transactions may generate exposure to either direct or indirect taxes in different jurisdictions so understanding the impact on different taxes allows you to plan where your tax risk falls and structuring to ensure you pay the correct amount of tax.
