Article - The Role and Best Practices of International Business Intermediaries

In the realm of international business, intermediaries play a crucial role in bridging gaps between buyers and sellers, contractors and governments. They act as agents, custodians, or brokers, facilitating communication and connecting parties to facilitate successful business transactions. While intermediaries offer benefits, it is essential to navigate potential pitfalls. RCD Wealth has developed a strategy for international business intermediaries focused on benefiting all parties involved. This article provides a checklist of best practices for professional intermediaries to ensure successful collaborations.

Parties Involved in International Business Intermediation

The major parties in international business are the buyers and sellers, also known as suppliers and purchasers or service providers and service ordering parties. Intermediaries assist in connecting these parties to facilitate business transactions. They may work as agents for these parties or operate independently, aiming to be compensated through commissions.

Identifying the Principals

To ensure successful business transactions, it is crucial to identify the real principals involved. Sometimes, multiple intermediaries may complicate the business process, leading to communication issues and misunderstandings between parties. Professional international business intermediaries should insist on identifying the principals and bringing them together to facilitate business.

Resolving Commission Issues

Unresolved commission issues can hinder real business progress. Intermediaries may work primarily for one party or may struggle to find a solution for commission payment arrangements. Their involvement with multiple intermediaries and the absence of clear relations with principals can create problems. Intermediaries with unresolved commission issues tend to become trouble sources.
