In KPMG’s guide to international business locations costs, Australia ranked 5th of 10 major countries studied, with a 2016 business cost index of 89.4 (against the US benchmark set at 100). This report delves deeper into this finding, revealing how Australia compares to key hubs of business around the world.
For organisations looking to expand internationally, the decision of where to go and the cost of doing business in new locations can have a huge impact on the bottom line.
To assist, KPMG’s 2016 Competitive Alternatives report explores the most significant business cost factors in more than 100 cities and 10 countries around the world.
This study measures and provides insight on the impact of 26 key cost components, across seven business-to-business service segments, and 12 significant manufacturing sectors.
Australia ranks 5th in comparison to 10 key nations, with a more detailed breakdown on costs in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane included.
The goal of the report is to help organisations in Australia and internationally understand, compare and make decisions about where to expand their businesses.
