UK companies setting up business in the US

If you are a UK company looking to set up operations in the US, we can support you during your expansion and walk you through the different steps involved in the process.

Our UK/US desk partners regularly work together with colleagues from our US member firm, UHY Advisors, and we can introduce you to like-minded in-country advisors who can provide ongoing advisory services to your new overseas operation.

Our US member firm has also produced a ‘Doing business’ guide which summarises the key issues you will need to consider when setting up business in the US, including details on procedural issues, local regulations on foreign investment, and taxation.  To download a copy of this guide, please visit the Resources page at www.uhy.com.
