Leading education assurance provider rebrands as RSM

One of the leading audit and assurance providers to the UK education and skills sector is today changing its name as part of a global rebranding exercise.

Baker Tilly is today adopting the name RSM, uniting under a single common brand with RSM audit, tax and consulting firms across the world.

RSM International is the seventh largest network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms, encompassing more than 110 countries, 730 offices and more than 37,500 people. The network’s total fee income is $4.4bn.

In the UK, RSM has over 550 clients across the education and skills sector – academy trusts, further education colleges, higher education institutions, independent schools, private training providers and associated regulatory authorities – making RSM one of the top three audit and assurance providers to this sector. In addition to undertaking external and internal audit services, the firm also provides other services including tax, VAT, IT assurance, social impact assessments and restructuring advice.

Lisa Randall, RSM’s head of education, said: ‘This is a significant move for our firm as it will mean that we are better able to support our clients wherever they do business in the world.

‘However, while our name might be changing, we remain absolutely committed to the education sector. We will continue to invest in this sector, supporting both our existing clients and the sector as a whole, for whom it will be very much business as usual.’

To coincide with the rebrand, the firm will be launching its new look website at rsmuk.com.
