The US is calling...

The largest consumer market in the world and UK's single biggest export market, the US is the home of opportunity. With the help of our expert team of market entry specialists, industry experts and local knowledge gurus – this is your opportunity to put your business on the map.

 

The Opportunity

The size of the US and the vast cultural differences across the country, make the US a bustling hub for UK exporters. Currently, the UK makes up only 1.4% of imports, meaning there is a great opportunity for growth in this region. Why not take a bite of the apple for yourself?

The Economy

Approximately 40x the size of the UK, the US literally gives UK exporters a bigger playing field to compete in. Currently making up 29.95% of the world’s economy, the US’s GDP has seen consistent growth of 1.8% with the GDP reaching an all-time high in 2016 of $18569.10 billion - so really the question is, why are you not tapping into this potential?!

The Reach

For more than a century the US has been the world’s largest biggest economy. Currently the US is the largest national economy in nominal terms and is the second largest in terms of purchasing power, making the US an economic superpower, in its own right.

Taxation

Taxation in the US can be complicated. Governed by the Internal Revenue Service, companies can be taxed by the US federal government and individual states, counties and cities. However, with a double taxation agreement between the US and UK, you will only be taxed by one country. 

THE HOME OF EASE

The US ranks at 7 out of 189 countries for ease of doing business. This is measured by the World Bank, using ten different indicators, including; starting a business, enforcing contracts, trading across borders and paying tax.

Infrastructure

The US is home to 4 out of 10 of the busiest airports in the world, with Atlanta International Airport ranking the busiest in 2015. With hundreds of flights scheduled between the UK and the US every day, there is plenty of opportunity to take your company to new heights.
