How do you expand your business operations to the UK

June 23rd, 2020, Legal Updates, News

GSC Solicitors LLP is a member of a very large global association of accounting and law firms, Abacus Worldwide.

That membership provides us with access to resources and a network of professional service firms that can assist us and our clients with legal and accounting issues just about anywhere on the planet.

Abacus recently launched a new podcast called Vantage Worldwide.  Every month listeners will have a chance to learn from financial and legal experts about what it takes to do business in different countries across the globe.

This month’s session features input from GSC’s Head of Corporate & Commercial Clive Halperin alongside other Abacus members specialised in accountancy and law. Clive shares his legal expertise on the following issues:

  • Setting up a business in the UK: types of structures can be used to carry on business in the UK; do you need resident directors and shareholders; how easy is it to set up a bank account and say register a trade mark
  • Selling goods or services into the UK: the difference in the UK between selling at a distance directly or through an agent or a distributor
  • Sending employees to the UK: Visa issues around sending employees to the UK; how easy is it to employ people in the UK as a foreign business
  • Buying a business in the UK: current activities we are seeing in the M&A market and how will Brexit affect this if at all.
