The GSC International Business Hub –

Enter the UK Market with GSC

The UK remains the world’s sixth largest economy. According to the World Bank, it ranks eighth for ease of doing business, with a history of low corporate taxation and high innovation, and a highly skilled workforce.

Yet entering the UK market presents any organisation with challenges. From employment and tax law to property, data protection and immigration, the UK’s practices present a range of risks and pitfalls for the unwary or unknowing.

That’s why it helps to have a legal and commercial partner by your side, a partner that has helped organisations from Asia, Africa and Europe establish and scale operations in the UK market.
