We build our strong relationships on trust and discretion
If you are an overseas business wanting to drive up your profitability and increase your competitiveness, Britain is the place to be. It’s easier to do business in the UK than any other major European economy.(1)
“Trade and inward investment are key drivers of growth – they are fundamental to rebuilding and rebalancing our economy” said UK’s Business Secretary Vince Cable.
Over 64 million people live in the UK – a major market in its own right. But it is also the gateway to Europe, the world’s largest single market with more than 500 million consumers.
Companies choose to expand or move their businesses to the UK because “Britain is the number one location for European headquarters with more overseas companies than anywhere else.” – fDi Markets
Companies based in the UK can reach more than 500 million consumers across Europe.
The UK has:
- people with the talent and right skills
- a simple and competitive tax rate system
- a transparent regulatory system making it easier to do business
You don’t pay any duties when importing or exporting within the European Union (EU). The UK also has free or preferential trade agreements with many non-EU countries. International companies locate to the UK because they want to:
- access new or existing customers
- develop new products
- find new suppliers and partners
- do more business in other countries across Europe
If you want to invest, if you want to expand, if you want great incentives and an economy that’s going from strength to strength, then come to the UK – Food Trade Affairs is happy to help you set up your company here.
