International tax planning

As your business grows, international tax planning and structuring is essential to keep your global tax bill from skyrocketing. Not only do you need an adviser with a deep understanding of UK tax rules, you also need them to be experts in interacting with overseas legislation to minimise double taxation.

You will need to consider your group structure, and how you will set up foreign operations (including subsidiaries). An effective transfer pricing strategy is also invaluable to support inter-company transactions.

International tax planning for companies and groups

Businesses operating in the UK must contend with one of the world’s most complex tax and regulatory regimes. That’s before they even considered any international aspects of their activities!
