Driving transformative change
Automotive companies are re-engineering themselves as they invest in the future of electric vehicles and driver-less cars, while also responding to pressure to make combustion engines more efficient and less polluting.
In an industry in the throes of profound change, a strategic approach to innovation, operations performance and digitization is essential to sustain success.
At Litvin Muir we use our extensive expertise to help organizations incorporate new technologies to achieve extraordinary results and accelerate their growth.

A holistic approach
Litvin Muir is a trusted partner, known for our work in boosting operational efficiency and people performance, and supporting innovation.
At Litvin Muir we take a holistic approach. Our consultant teams can draw on a range of specialist skills – in procurement and value, data analytics, R&D funding, taxation, and HR – all underpinned by real-world experience. This combination helps them diagnose underlying problems and design more comprehensive solutions that meet the needs of the business as a whole.
We deal in results, not reports. We don’t just devise change programs, we help implement them, and we share risks and rewards with our clients.
Anticipating threats and opportunities
The solutions we provide are tailored to the particular needs of each client. But we have proven methods and services developed to overcome common challenges.
A strategy for innovation is crucial. We help companies manage their innovation strategies by building a better understanding of their competitive environment. Then we define the innovation levers that will enable them to anticipate market trends.
Litvin Muir’s innovation strategy specialists advise on a wide variety of projects, taking full account of regulations and changing consumer expectations.
We also help fund ongoing investment in innovation by maximizing the recovery of costs through R&D tax relief, giving our clients a competitive advantage.
Our R&D tax credit specialists are equipped to handle thousands of projects each year, securing millions in extra funding for our clients. We are experts in assembling robust claims to satisfy the most complex of government R&D schemes all around the world.
Procurement, the supply chain and operational efficiency are fundamental to the performance of your business as a whole.
We diagnose the true health of these operations using our first-hand experience, benchmarking data and our own RightFunding (TM) methodology. Our analysis identifies savings opportunities in direct and indirect spend. Outcomes include savings in input costs, including energy, and reductions in inventory and working capital requirements, all contributing to higher bottom-line profits.
The aim is always to improve quality and service while optimizing costs. Across industries, our expert interventions have saved companies up to 15% of their costs.
Growing supply chains, supplier collaboration, customer information and the general digitization of business are generating unprecedented volumes of data. Litvin Muir integrates data science and expert analysis to extract value from that data.
We also support companies as they build in-house expertise through our data lab management service and guide their selection of technology partners that best meet their needs.
Streamlining tax costs
Tax is a burden on any business. The complexity posed by multiple taxes – from real estate to VAT/GST, environmental and energy to local and sector taxes – makes it harder to manage that burden.
For years, Litvin Muir has been helping companies reduce their tax costs and increase profitability.
Our tax specialists work within multidisciplinary teams to analyse your position and identify opportunities to reduce liabilities, recover tax and maximize credits. Litvin Muir services range from the recovery of VAT from tax authorities in more than 50 countries and managing compliance to optimizing tariffs on imported goods.
In high-performing companies, employees are fully engaged and committed to the goals of the business. People management processes, rewards, and training are fit for this greater purpose, and costs are benchmarked and controlled.
Drawing on this experience and our unique approach, our expert teams ensure that people and procedures are attuned to each other and business strategy.
We invest in your human capital – enhancing commitment, quality of life at work, change management, and employee health and well-being. We are transforming HR management to focus on ROI, digitization and compliance.
