Holding company registration in UK

One of the key reasons for the setting-up a holding company of an advantageous and competitive environment is that the majority of both share disposals and dividends received are now exempt from tax. Of course, there are some exemptions to this, and certain requirements do need to be met.

The knowledgeable team at Coddan will be happy to explore these with you. Reformation is also under way regarding the taxation finance and overseas-controlled companies, where they were previously subject to the taxation in Great Britain. It's increasingly possible that both will eventually benefit from extremely low tax rates.

The advantages of a UK holding company

A holding company registered here can benefit from their parent/subsidiary and interest and royalties directives, including the double tax treaties. Two key advantages are: allowing dividends to be paid to a British holding company free of any withholding tax; enterprise to receive dividends from any EU member states is free from the withholding taxes, because UK signed double tax treaties with all countries who are EU members, UK has many double tax treaties signed with non-EU countries as well.

Another positive is the extensive network of treaties the UK can access, including double tax treaties with countries like the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Israel, Switzerland and China (UK has double tax treaties with more than 130 countries, making Great Britain as one of the world's largest chain)- which can significantly reduce withholding tax on dividends.

Benefits to forming a holding company in the Great Britain

Setting-up a holding company in the UK

A holding company is an individual legal entity that exists in order to own or "hold" assets. These assets can be anything that has value, so although stocks and shares in other companies are very commonly owned by holding companies, there are many other asset forms which can also be held. These other assets might include trademarks, brand names, and patents; private equity funds and hedge funds; traded public stocks; bonds; real estate and property; and even creative rights, such as to songs, books, or films.

With regards to the ownership of shares, a registered holding company can own 100% of the shares of a private company or a limited liability partnership, or another corporation. In many cases a holding company may own several companies that each form a part of a much larger international group. In these circumstances, the holding company exists in order to protect the assets from each other, and ultimately to protect the profits from loss in the face of disaster.

For example, in the chemical industry, a single holding enterprise may own subsidiary companies that in turn own several patents and brand names pertaining to particular products. They might also own the manufacturing companies that produce these products.

If one or more of the manufacturing companies go bankrupt, the subsidiary companies will be unaffected by this, and the holding company will still own the brand names and the patents. This enables the business to re-establish itself quickly, and without further losses.

Be aware of a holding company registration: by definition, a holding firm does not conduct business operations, although where it owns the majority of shares in a public or limited company, it may choose to provide executive oversight of that company, informing the corporate policies by which it functions. Generally, however, the rapid holding company formation does not have an everyday role in any of its investments. These are run by their own management teams, and many holding companies act as merely passive investors.

Quick holding company formation service

For the quick company set-up packages, we included the registration of a holding company with Companies House, the appointment of your own directors and shareholders, the issue of subscriber shares, the provision of a registered office address, and assistance with opening a bank account.

We also provide the completion of AGM and EGM minutes and resolutions, a tax review that looks at the formation of the holding company, VAT submission, and a series of post-incorporation services for your convenience.

Is the United Kingdom the good place to register a holding company?

The short answer to this often-asked question is "yes". There are a range of reasons for this to be seen as a positive decision. The recent return to the country of a number of holding companies who had previously moved elsewhere suggests a change in both government attitude and behaviour.

It's also the case that the largest number of new holding companies being created throughout Europe over the last few years has been in this country.

One of the key reasons for the (re)creation of an advantageous and competitive environment is that the majority of both share disposals and dividends received are now exempt from tax. Of course, there are some exemptions to this, and certain requirements do need to be met. The knowledgeable team at Coddan will be happy to explore these with you.

Reformation is also under way regarding the taxation of both non-UK finance and overseas-controlled companies, where they were previously subject to UK tax. It's increasingly possible that both will eventually benefit from extremely low tax rates.

With the UK as not-a-member of the EU, a holding company here can benefit from the Parent/Subsidiary and Interest and Royalties Directives. Two key advantages are: allowing dividends to be paid to the UK holding company free of any withholding tax on shareholdings above 10%; a UK holding company to receive interest from any of the EU Member States, providing the UK holding company has a minimum of 25% of the shares in the EU company which pays the interest.

Another positive is the extensive network of treaties the UK can access, including double tax treaties with countries like the USA and China – which can significantly reduce withholding tax on dividends. It's also possible that, in future, overseas branches may be exempt from the UK tax. Also, that interest expenses on funding for share acquisitions can be tax deductible.

With these advantages, and ongoing changes likely, it's vital to work with proven experts in holding company registration. Coddan has this experience, and we can also help with the appointment of a company secretary, provision of a registered office in the UK. We can assist with the EORI & VAT registration,  issue of subscriber shares, and other key areas.
