ISNetworld is an online software business providing services to large capital-intensive companies in mining, oil and power generation. The business was established in 2001 in the USA and since then has expanded into Canada, Mexico, the UK and more recently, Australia.
ISNetworld approached Grant Thornton to help them establish their company in Australia. Their story is best summed up by Joseph Eastin, President of ISNetworld.
“When looking to set up in Australia, we knew one of the main challenges would be the physical distance and natural inefficiencies of being overseas. Thankfully our concerns were unfounded as Grant Thornton have been very responsive and never left us waiting on a response. This has allowed for fast turn around at our end when making decisions, which was key to getting the business up and running in a timely and efficient manner.
The Grant Thornton Australia team provided proactive alternatives and suggestions on how we set up the company, guided us legally and helped set up our corporate banking facilities. We were very happy with how this was handled and so the scope of work has since increased to further consulting services and tax advice, which is very important when setting up a business in a new country.
We use Grant Thornton frequently and they are our first point of call when we need advice. They have demonstrated an understanding of our detail-orientated culture, and respect for our own particular way of doing things. Going forward we will continue to use Grant Thornton and feel comfortable knowing we have expert local advice when and as needed”.
