How to open a foreign company in the United Kingdom: there are many reasons why overseas companies locate to the UK. Opening an overseas company in the UK can give a business easier access to new or existing clients, pave the way to the development of new products, and allow them to find new suppliers and business partners. It also provides a convenient European platform from which they can easily do more business with other countries across Europe.
So what do you have to do if you want to register an overseas company in the United Kingdom?
All limited companies setting up in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, including overseas companies, must register with Companies House, to whom they will also need to submit annual accounts.
Most overseas companies set up as a limited company. The main advantages of this are no consents are required, no local shareholders or directors are needed, and no minimum paid share capital rules apply.
