Silk Oil of Morocco
29 September 2017
As a Director of an Australian based family business, Shirley Piscina, of Silk Oil of Morocco was looking for Government assistance to continue to develop her innovative product formulations when she was referred to BDO Government Incentives Partner, Nicola Purser. After a fascinating journey developing an Argan oil based, vegan hair and skin care range, Shirley was looking to expand her existing domestic and export business. What she discovered was, not only was she eligible for research and development incentives, but also export market development grants.
Shirley said communication and efficiency is what make BDO stand out and having BDO’s experienced team on hand to provide relevant advice and clear communication, meant a stress free engagement for her. Nicola and Shirley have developed a strong and trusting relationship. One that has seen the successful expansion of Silk Oil of Morocco into Europe and now the US - one of over 150 countries where BDO has an already established network.
BDO’s guidance has significantly contributed to Silk Oil of Morocco’s journey in the ability to receive the R&D tax incentive and the export market development grants to achieve their short and long term goals.
“Nicola Purser and the team at BDO have provided amazing advice and guidance enabling us to continue our exporting journey. I see them as an integral part of our future growth and expansion.”
