International expansion

Exporting, or establishing a business overseas, can boost your turnover and reduce your dependence on UK-based customers. But international expansion brings many new challenges.

According to your particular circumstances and countries of operation, we can help you consider the options available to your business to ensure all commercial arrangements and structures are appropriate and tax efficient.

However, while different tax regulations and employment laws are critical, they're only the tip of the iceberg. Other considerations include double taxation treaties, exchange control regulations, different legal systems and structures, licenses to apply for and import/export regulations.

If overseas expansion is in your company's strategic plan, there's no substitute for experience. Having trusted, expert international accountants and business advisers on the ground is vital.

Through Baker Tilly International we can effectively extend our services to most regions of the world to ensure that both UK and overseas businesses benefit from the most commercial and tax efficient advice available.
