Baker Tilly is 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 a significant presence in the emergency services market. The firm providers services to 44 police and crime commissioners, police forces and fire services.

RSM delivers a number of outsourced and co-sourced internal audit contracts and the firm also provides a number of other services to emergency services clients including tax, VAT, IT assurance, fraud risk services, lean, risk management and governance support, contract risk and social impact services.

Daniel Harris, RSM’s head of emergency services 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 emergency services sector. We will continue to invest in growing our emergency services business and for our existing UK emergency services clients, it will be very much business as usual."
