Take your American business to the UK

While there is traditionally a strong history of trans-Atlantic cultural and economic exchange between the United States and the UK, there remain important legislative differences that could make a business expansion to the UK challenging.

For instance, employment at will is all but unknown in the UK. This is but one key labour-related difference between the two countries. The UK has a very different sales tax (VAT) system, corporate tax regime and organisational culture compared to the USA.

We have an extensive team of experienced professionals working across many sectors and disciplines who can help you navigate these uncharted waters. Contact us if you have any questions about bringing your business into the UK.

Grow a South African business into the UK

While the path of emigration is well-trodden, it’s more complicated when establishing business operations in the UK. This is where we come in.

Since 1994, many young South African professionals have chosen to live and work in London on a semi-permanent or permanent basis.

More recently, the UK government has made it much more difficult for South Africans to gain access to the UK market. A popular route that is still available is the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa. This visa encourages business owners to set-up or take over businesses that have the potential to be successful.

We ensure you meet all tax, corporate and immigration requirements, and help you join other successful South African businesses that have expanded into the UK. With a business expansion strategy, your business is far more likely to succesd.

Why SA businesses are choosing to expand to the UK:

  • A hedge against Rand volatility

  • A path to relocation via the Tier 1 visa

  • Established South African community
