Doing business in the UK

Establishing a foreign company in the UK can provide businesses with huge opportunities. With a stable economic system and diverse consumer market, it has one of the highest wealth per capita in the World. However, it also comes with often complex tax and business regulations, so the right preparation is essential.

We can assist with every aspect of setting up a UK company. We work with you to decide which trading entity and structure is best suited to your needs. Then our team can advise you through all the relevant taxation and legal implications of doing business in the UK.

Global strategy

Are you exploring a new market for the first time, or taking the plunge to start trading internationally? We can help you get the initial planning right to minimise the pitfalls and maximise opportunities.

Take the time to deliberate your reasons to give your global strategy a sense of purpose. Be sure to research local regulations, competition and market, and consider what your operating model will be. Will you sell directly from the UK, or use local agents and distributors?

Our experience can help you find the answers that are right for your business. And as part of PrimeGlobal, we can provide practical advice on matters such as international group and financing structures, cross-border transactions, and individuals who spend significant time abroad.
