Steps for moving business operations overseas


Moving business operations overseas can be an excellent way to expand your business. It can also be a way to lower your operational expenses and widen your reach. Unfortunately, moving your business internationally is not an easy task. There are many things to consider and, because every country in the world has its own unique laws, regulations, and business environment, it can be pretty difficult to find a perfect place for your business. Moreover, even when you find a perfect place, you still need to organize and conduct the relocation process itself. Luckily for you, moving and storage Brooklyn prepared a list of steps that, if you do them properly, will help you relocate your business overseas in a smooth and effective manner. Here at U.Santini Moving & Storage, we’re discussing how to manage it.

Hire a financial advisor to help you

Everything starts with an idea. If you have one that includes moving business operations overseas, you need to work on it. Once you elaborate on that idea, start turning it into an actual plan. Of course, in the beginning, you and your closest associates will work on that plan. But at a certain point, if everything looks well and plausible, you should hire a professional financial advisor to work with you on the details. As we already mentioned, you need to think about finance, laws, and regulations regarding opening a business in that particular country, as well as finding international moving companies NYC has to offer, and organizing the move.

Have you thought about outsourcing your services?

Moving your entire business can be a good idea in certain situations. But do you really need to go through all that trouble? True, you could easily hire long distance movers Brooklyn business owners trust and move your entire business. But you could also try outsourcing your services. Outsourcing is the best and most popular way of relocating business operations overseas. In fact, of all countries in the world, the USA has the biggest percentage of outsourced jobs. Almost 70% of all American companies outsource their services to other companies around the world.

The best countries for outsourcing business operations

If you decide for outsourcing here are some of the most popular countries depending on your business:

  • India is the most popular country for outsourcing IT and software development services
  • The Philippines can be a good source of customer and back-office services
  • Poland is one of the best European countries for IT and software development services. More expensive than India but more secure because of strict laws and regulations
  • Brazil is good for outsourcing IT services
  • South Africa can be a good place for outsourcing contact centers and IT services
  • Malaysia is also popular for outsourcing IT services and software development

Now, what country you will choose for this depends on many factors. Of course, the costs are the number one factor to consider. Still, you also need to make sure that that cheap workforce will be able to deliver your product or service in a quality fashion. You also need to make sure that the country is safe and stable and that they have well established legal system that will be able to protect your business.

Find a perfect location for your business

If you decide that outsourcing is not the best option for your business and you really want to relocate your business, even partially, there are a few things that you need to decide. Of course, the first thing is to pick a country. If you are looking for the cheapest options, India, South Africa, Philippines are good options. If you are looking for low expenses along with safety and the rule of law, you should concentrate on European countries like Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Serbia, or Hungary.

Once you pick a country, start looking for the location for your business. If you are opening an office, look for commercial buildings in business parts of town. If you are looking for a warehouse, ensure that the surrounding infrastructure is suitable for your business.

Hire a local business consultant

Once you find a perfect location, find a business consultant that will handle the entire operation in that particular country. As we already mentioned, every country has its own rules and regulations that are different from other countries. Moreover, there will surely be customs and practices that are not written in any book. You won’t know them unless you have someone on the ground to guide you. Your consultant should be acquainted will local laws, costs, and locations, and should be the one that will welcome your Brooklyn office movers once they arrive.

Now, you are ready for moving business operations internationally. The only thing left is to find an appropriate moving company that will handle the process. Be careful with this one though. International relocations are a complicated business that requires a lot of experience and expertise. So when checking moving costs in Brooklyn, don’t go with the cheapest offer. You want to make sure that you have the best professionals by your side at this point. Even if it’s going to costs you a couple of hundred more.

If you make a good plan and good local assistance, relocating your business overseas should be a success

Those are the steps for moving business operations overseas. As you can see, there is a lot of planning and research involved. If you do that part right and find a good advisor, you will have no trouble, regardless of the country you choose.
