Assessment #2 – Major Report
You are providing advice to a large and successful Australian denim clothing company (K & K Ltd). The company has succeeded in exporting their products to a number of overseas countries and has thus far avoided any problems with fluctuating exchange rates by stipulating that all transactions be recorded in Australian dollars. Because of increasing demand for its products and lower manufacturing costs overseas, the company is now considering establishing a manufacturing plant in Malaysia. You are required to prepare a report outlining to the board, the business (not accounting) issues which will arise and which must be considered when developing an independent overseas subsidiary in Malaysia.
This assessment will enable students to discuss various business issues arising from Australian businesses operating internationally.
