Working with The UK
The UK is one of the world’s leading business locations, based on the World Bank ‘Doing Business’ survey: ranked top in Europe in terms of ease of doing business and fourth in the world, with an unrivalled business environment and internationally competitive tax rate awaiting developing firms.
Living in The UK
Moving to and living in the UK requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of British life. Living in the UK raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find relocation services for moving to the UK?ʺ, ʺAm I automatically entitled to NHS insurance and medical care?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in London should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit?ʺ
We can help you with information on many different areas ranging from education and children, to local organisations & companies or culture and sights, up to accommodation and work law.
Business in The UK
Corporation tax is the joint-lowest in the G20 at 20%, which is further reduced by up to 100% for work related to R&D, and tax on patents is just 10%.
Despite the obvious appeal, companies can find complicated and disparate laws, tax brackets, and other bits of UK red tape rather challenging.
Foreign businesses coming to the UK should be aware that the accounts of all UK companies are subject to public disclosure through the Registrar of Companies. Although there are little fees charged, the number of procedures can make the process quite laborious for businesses.
British Business Culture
The British often come across as quite reserved and distant at first, and it can take some time to get down to the nitty-gritty elements of business proceedings. Time is an important factor, although reaching a decision can be a slow and laborious process involving many layers of people and bureaucracy. Ideally, business introductions are initiated through a connected third party. In older companies, business still centres around the ‘old boy network’ with schools, universities and family ties being important. Newer companies are more progressive.

Although British culture is a distinct entity, the individual cultures of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are diverse and have varying degrees of overlap and distinctiveness.
