International Business

Whether you’re running an international business in the UK or are looking to establish one, need advice on restructuring your overseas assets or are thinking of trading abroad, our team of international business and tax specialists have the knowledge and expertise to assist. Through our membership of Baker Tilly International we are able to provide premier accounting, assurance, tax and specialist business advice worldwide, drawing on internationally recognised industry and service line experts in over 140 countries.

Our clients range from privately owned UK companies with overseas operations to large UK subsidiaries and branches of major multinational groups. With increasing mobility in a global economy we also provide specialist tax advice for a large number of expatriates and non-domiciled individuals, both in the UK and abroad. We have been advising UK and overseas companies for many years on all aspects of business start-up and operation. 

As well as traditional services, we offer specialised expertise for the international business community: 

  • Audit and accounts
  • Selection of most efficient trading entity: Whether setting up or expanding a business, we recommend the most efficient trading and taxation structure for your business now, and in the future.
  • Domestic tax issues: We will advise on the most efficient means of meeting your domestic tax responsibilities.
  • International tax issues: We’ll guide you through the complexities of international tax regulations, with a focus on lmport Duties, Employment Tax, Remuneration, Transfer Pricing and VAT while mitigating your exposure, and reflecting on the impact of double tax treaties.
  • Strategy: For an increasing number of clients, we support strategic growth by assisting with such decisions as: where to base operations, how to access local funding (through enterprise zones, regional grants etc).

Setting up in the UK 

We can assist with every aspect of initial advice leading to the assessment of trading operations. We work with you to decide which trading entity and structure is best suited to your needs. We examine all the relevant taxation and legal implications, advising you on issues such as transfer pricing and the impact of double tax agreements. 

Expanding overseas 

International expansion brings many new challenges and whilst different tax regulations and employment laws are critical, they’re only the tip of the iceberg. We can help you confront numerous issues from double taxation treaties, exchange control regulations to different legal systems and structures. Through Baker Tilly International we can introduce you to professional advisers anywhere in the world. 


Our tax teams are highly experienced in dealing with the particular needs of people who come to live in the UK as well as British citizens who live and work abroad. We advise private individuals and businesses with international interests who want to support their people through the complex process of settling down in a new country.
