International activities

Conducting business successfully across international borders not only requires detailed knowledge of local laws, tax systems, regulations and customs, but the experience, skills and resources to support business activities on a global scale.

Establishing a subsidiary or branch in a neighboring Nordic country is a step growth companies often take. Even if the business cultures appear similar, certain topics still require attention e.g. company set-up, local regulations, local tax requirements and bank connections. Our specialists’ task is to make your organisation’s entry in a new market as smooth as possible.

Greenstep can assist your finance teams by handling your accounting needs and payroll. We can set-up and manage the underlying system solution to ensure a unified approach across the company in meeting your financial accounting and reporting needs. Our solutions are designed to scale with your business, enabling you to leverage our experience in financial accounting, reporting, planning and analysis as needed.
