In 2015, more than 4000 US businesses took the bold decision to expand to the UK. It is now your turn! With our expert team of market entry specialists, industry experts and local knowledge gurus, we will put your business on the map.
Last year the US made up 9.2% of the UK's imports. That's a huge $200 billion USD per annum, that US private and public companies invested into the UK. Why not take a piece of the pie for yourself?
The UK is 1.7x the size of New York State, and yet has a Gross Domestic Product of £2.7 trillion GBP, that's $3.4USD. That's 3.2x the New York State economy. An opportunity that is hard to ignore.
The UK is the 5th largest economy in the world. With that influence, the world is your oyster. Joint trade, visa waiver programs and income tax regulations make it easier than ever to trade with the UK.
The UK offers a corporation tax rate that is 50% of the United States. At just 22%, the New York Times, called the UK in 2014 the "perfect place to make more profit, market to more people and expand into Europe".
THE HOME OF MONEY
London, the UK's capital city, is the world's financial centre. Housing more financial institutions than any other city in the world. When it comes to outward investment we top the lot, the UK having invested $2.8 billion USD in 2015. That's 1.3x the US.
Heathrow Airport is the 6th busiest in the world, and the busiest in Europe. Excluding private flights, there are 235 scheduled service flights from the US to the UK everyday. That is 85,775 flights a year!
"With the global economy in uncertain times, now, more than ever, it is important to find certainty. No economy in the world is more secure, more inviting, more rewarding than the UK. I encourage as many that can, to expand your services to the UK. You won't be disappointed."
Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney (August 2016)
