Introducing Mr Wilfried Serles, Managing Partner of Grant Thornton Slovakia, expert on tax issues and Central and Eastern Europe and great advocate of Slovakia.

The Voice of Slovak Business is a unique cooperation between the Slovak Embassy in London and SARIO, which shall facilitate starting of new business in Slovakia. As this will be a perfect source of information for British businesses investing in Slovakia, this valuable initiative is kindly endorsed by Grant Thornton.

Mr Wilfried Serles, representing Grant Thornton, the advisory firm with a strong base in Central and Eastern Europe, I confirm that Slovakia is one of the top spots for doing business in the region. Our clients are highly satisfied with the quality of education and labour in Slovakia. They enjoy a local business environment, which makes it quite easy for them to achieve their goals in developing and growing their business.

I might add that Grant Thornton’s most recent quarterly global survey of 2,600 businesses in 37 economies suggests that business leaders report strong increase in optimism heading into 2017. From conversations with our clients, I can say that uncertainty was the business buzzword of 2016, and much of that came from Brexit and the US presidential election. That uncertain period is now reduced, and knowing the results will allow businesses to have a clearer steer on such key issues such as jobs, trade policy and taxes.

Grant Thornton is ready to assist investors in Slovakia from their starting point and is welcoming them with a big KISS – we will Keep It Small and Simple whenever they need to solve complex problems.
