UK accounting firm visiting Boston and New York

As you may know, we are a UK Accounting firm focussed on helping US companies setup in the UK.
For many years we have been regularly travelling to the USA with the intention to help US corporations expand in to Europe.

Our clients refer to us as a “One-Stop-Shop” solution to US businesses operating in the UK. Services provided range from initial advice on the choice of UK legal entity, through opening a UK bank account and UK VAT registration, provision of bookkeeping, expense processing and monthly reporting (in both GBP and USD). Using these services means that a transition from “setup “to “routine” is seamless. Payroll administration, which includes mandatory legal obligations and contractual obligations as described in the employee benefits package is also part of the back office support system.

 
I am is visiting Boston and New York to see current clients March 10/11 and 14/15 respectively. 
 
An initial talking point is the type of entity available for the UK operation. There are two main legal entities, a UK limited company and a branch. The latter is an extension of the parent company and is required to file a copy of the parent company’s accounts at Companies House in the UK where once filed become public record. They include a profit and loss statement along with balance sheet. Customers, suppliers or anyone with an interest in the company may access this data. A limited company is only required to provide their own statutory accounts, however, below a certain size do not need to file a profit & loss.
 
UK VAT registration procedures, UK auditing requirements, and local employment laws (for instance there is no such concept of being “employed at will” as it doesn’t exist in the UK), are usually outside international companies expertise and are often a minefield to a company setting up in the UK.
 
If you know a company thinking about operating in the UK, then please contact me for further details or to arrange a meeting.
Recently we have published an article on UK sub-contractors working for US companies, and the consequences thereof, which may be of some interest.
 
For just over twenty years, Kevin Beare & Co has worked with overseas companies and have helped them invest in the UK. It is often said that the UK and US are one nation divided by two cultures and a common language.
