The United Kingdom encourages individuals and companies from the United States to start a business in the UK. However, the process and documentation aren’t always clear if you are not familiar with how to run a business in the UK. This is where we come in and assist companies from the United States to set up a business within the UK.
You can work as a freelancer, self-employed, or start a business in the UK as long as you have the right to work in the UK.
Companies from the United States, that want to operate as a business in the UK or open up a branch or subsidiary in the UK need to register as an overseas company with Companies House.
To register a limited company as an overseas national is absolutely no different from that of a British national. You have to provide all the same details and file the same documents. The process is free of any additional charges for non-residents.
How can we help?
We have substantial experience with setting up companies from the United States in the UK. We take time and patience with them to ensure they are aware of the UK requirements, and their obligations in terms of on-going compliance and responsibilities.
We support companies from the United States right from the outset with advice on the different legal entities, such as a subsidiary in the UK or a branch, opening the bank account, all the way through to ongoing support and advisory services regarding VAT returns, payroll, and yearly accounts.
Our service is twofold – we support the UK-based team, those who are engaged to promote and sell your product/services here while being answerable and responsible to the parent company team.
UK regulatory compliance burden is removed by utilising our support services to ensure these matters are dealt with efficiently, resulting in increased time for you to focus on sales for the UK operation so it continues to grow.
