International companies

Our Central London location means we are able to offer our services to overseas companies looking for a presence in the UK. Our clients come from as far as Australasia, USA, Asia and, of course, closer to home in Europe.

As part of our service offering to overseas businesses, we can:

  • Host a registered office and handle mail
  • Advise on the best way and structure for your UK-based business
  • Set up a UK branch or permanent establishment
  • Set up a UK subsidiary company
  • Advise on alternative structures (including involving overseas territories)
  • UK book keeping
  • UK Tax Compliance
  • UK Tax Planning
  • UK Funding Opportunities
  • Liaise with UK statutory bodies such as Companies House

Through our extensive network, we can also introduce you to other UK professional expert advisers such as bankers, lawyers, surveyors and financial advisers.

Supporting your growth

We know overseas clients often have very specific requirements, so we allocate you a BM2020 Client Director, with the appropriate knowledge and expertise to guide you through the process, step-by-step.

Your Client Director will assist you with everything from establishing the best route to market, registering your business accordingly with all the necessary paperwork, to guiding you on making the most of the opportunities in the UK market.

In addition, each client has access to their own BM2020 Client Accountant, who will work closely with you to make sure that you meet all of your UK accounting obligations and filing deadlines.

We recognise that working with overseas clients requires flexibility and that you may require access to information outside of UK business hours. We therefore store all of your documents digitally, giving you can access them via email when you need them.

Languages spoken by our Client Accountants and other team members include, but are not limited to:

  • Afrikaans
  • Bahasa Indonesia
  • English
  • French
  • Italian
  • Latvian
  • Mandarin
  • Panjabi
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Swahili
  • Urdu

Case study

The financial need

Our client, based in Germany, not only wanted to expand their business into the UK, but also wanted to raise finance – no easy task in this economic climate.

How we helped

Through BM2020’s International Services, we were able to set up a UK permanent establishment so they could operate a functioning sales office from the UK. In support of raising their finance, we ensured that their potential investors (through an angel investor round of equity finance) were able to obtain the significant tax advantages under the Enterprise Investment Scheme.
