In our experience – and we have plenty of it – international groups often require much more from their financial advisers than purely statutory audit and tax compliance work.
In response, we launched a specialist foreign direct investment (fdi) service called London Landing. The service is available to overseas companies that want to establish operations in the UK or mainland Europe.
We typically provide tax planning advice to executives on issues such as the UK tax implications of group strategy, efficient international structuring, and transfer pricing arrangements. We can also offer guidance on the many options for raising finance in the UK.
Once the entity is established, we are perfectly placed to handle ongoing tasks such as preparation of monthly management accounts, VAT advice and returns, and payroll processing.
While the international language of business is English, we do speak a variety of languages within Harwood Hutton, including Chinese, Russian and Spanish, which has proved helpful in the past. We also have excellent connections around the globe thanks to our membership of the Allinial network.
