Coddan has many years of experience in registration of holding companies in the UK, and our clients benefit from our knowledge and skills so that the holding company they get is correctly registered and fully statutory compliant.
Under British law, holding companies that receive dividends from subsidiaries that are located overseas get tax relief in the form of exemption from UK corporation taxes that's equal to the amount of overseas withholding tax on dividends as well as foreign tax on overseas profits. Combined with a low controlling stock requirement, this means that owners of a UK holding company can enjoy considerable financial advantages.
