We are unique in being one of only a handful of smaller Chartered Accountancy practices that can provide services to UK companies with international operations. We are able to offer this service as a result of the breadth of experience of our senior management team in working at Big 4 Firms and Top 10 Chartered Accountancy firms in the past, in service lines that cover Auditing, International taxation and corporate finance. Our management team have previously worked at Arthur Andersen, Deloitte and PwC.

It is this depth of experience that allows us to offer UK tax planning - and setting up of UK group structures to overseas clients wishing to do business in the UK and other countries within Europe.

As a result of favourable double taxation treaties with many countries - we are finding that many overseas companies will use the UK as their head of operations for carrying out business in Europe. We can advise on the benefits and disadvantages to this, based upon the facts of your company - we can ensure that you optimise your set up from both a commercial and tax viewpoint. It is important to consider the implications on effective tax rates for the group - and how profits can be repatriated to the parent company.

We are able to advise on implications of the new UK/Chinese double taxation treaty. This commenced from April 2014. There are benefits arising to both UK investor companies, and also to UK subdidiaries of Chinese parent companies.

Of great importance to the UK is that the new Chinese tax treaty is more favourable than the majority of tax treaties that China has with overseas jurisdictions, and means that the UK will be a key location for investment into Europe for Chinese companies. Moreover, for other European countries wishing to invest in China, investing through a UK company will have major benefits.

It is great to see that the UK is increasing its competitive edge in relation to international structures, and this will assist in adding GDP to the UK.

We look forward to assisting UK companies looking to invest into China as well as Chinese companies looking to invest in the UK and EU.

We can provide a full service with respect to completion of accounts, tax returns and audits for UK subsidiaries of overseas parent companies. We can provide payroll, accounting, taxation and audit services to UK branches or Ltd companies.

We have offices in central London and north west London so it is easy to arrange a meeting with one of our Directors.

We look forward to hearing from you.
