Global advice on international expansion

Zilliant use AI and predictive models to quantify the economic potential of every customer, and intelligently prescribe actions related to optimal product mix, pricing, and current demand that drive revenue and lift profits.

In 2006, Zilliant decided to expand their go-to-market strategy internationally to Europe, initially launching in the UK and subsequently extending to France. Blick Rothenberg acted as a single global advisor providing technical guidance and assistance with their set-up and on-going compliance needs. Initial requirements included providing guidance on the most appropriate entity for both operations, as well as managing all global mobility needs and expatriate tax planning.

Today, Blick Rothenberg continues to act as a single point of contact, both contractually as well as operationally, supporting their international business needs. In both instances, once the entity was in place, our Global Business Services team worked with Zilliant HQ to set up accounting records and VAT registrations which subsequently extended to bookkeeping, financial management reporting, company administration and VAT compliance.

Zilliant is compliant in both territories while receiving a consistent streamlined reporting service for group reporting. Emily Bubolz, Controller at Zilliant adds, “Our audit process is seamless given the cooperation and approach Blick Rothenberg undertakes with our US auditors.”

The Zilliant team have one Blick Rothenberg team that works as an extension of their own in-house finance function managing both overseas entities. This allows Zilliant to concentrate on growing their business and maintaining their strong momentum and success while Blick Rothenberg looks after the administration and local compliance needs.

“Blick Rothenberg has been an invaluable business partner helping shape our strategic direction internationally and maintain strong fiscal management and in-country compliance.”
