Doing Business in the UK

When considering doing business in the UK you must first give consideration as to what your tax implications and reporting obligations are in UK.

The questions to consider:

  • Am I required to establish an entity in the UK from which to trade, if so what type?
  • Will I have a UK establishment from which my business would trade?
  • Am I supplying goods or services to the UK?
  • What tax issues and business registrations do I need to consider?
  • What are my responsibilities as a business owner?
  • What are my obligations as an employer and what are the employee’s taxation requirements?
  • How substantial will my business activity in the UK be and how long do I expect to do business in the UK?
  • What are the commercial considerations?

Once again tax residency is fundamental to determine who has taxing rights over the UK business profits regardless of its incorporation in the UK.

If you are looking to do business in the UK I would recommend that you obtain professional advice to go through your options.
