Why overseas company owners should use a specialist for the UK-based company formations?

Overseas Companies Formation in the UK

Why overseas company directors should use a specialist for UK-based company formations? Many organisations want to expand into the United Kingdom but for many reasons may not want to establish an incorporated entity in the Great of Britain. Instead they may wish to register a branch or place of business as an oversea company. Some companies receive tax breaks and government development grants by continuing to be incorporated in their home country while they attempt to establish a British, Scottish or Irish operation.

The fact that a foreign company is carrying on business in the Great Britain does not automatically mean that the company has to register with Companies House. However, the Companies Act requires every oversea company which establishes some type of place of business in England, Scotland, Wales, or North of Ireland to deliver certain documents to Companies House.

To this end, a "UK establishment" is a premises where there is a physical or visible indication that the company may be contacted there. An oversea company also has to register if it habitually conducts business from a particular location in Great Britain even if there is no physical sign of the company's connection with it.

We have a wealth of experience in both registering and structuring branches and can advise you on whether this type of vehicle is suitable for your needs.

Registering an overseas business within the United Kingdom can be a lengthy process for individuals that are based outside of the Great Britain, and this is because of the extensive paperwork and document submission processes. In addition to this, language barriers can lead to unnecessary delays and misunderstandings, and this is why it is essential to deal with a business formation specialist that can act as an intermediary between Companies House (the UK government company start-up agency) and a director or directors.
