The UK is a hub for international business and trade. Ambitious and growing companies are always looking to expand into new markets. The UK, with its mature economy and established financial market, is also a fantastic place for overseas businesses to establish subsidiaries and holding companies.

As well as accounting and tax services, we can provide specialist advice to UK companies with overseas operations, UK subsidiaries and branches of overseas companies, businesses investing in the UK for the first time, as well as private individuals, family offices and trusts. We recognise the importance of partnering with a firm who understand global business and that provides proactive and timely support, combined with cross border know-how.

We look at problems from various perspectives and find unexpected solutions.

Inward investment – Setting up a business in the UK

With fewer restrictions, a favourable tax regime, one of the most generous R&D tax relief schemes in the world, and a springboard to Europe, the UK continues to be Europe’s leading destination for companies expanding their global business.

We understand the issues faced when investing abroad and have worked with many businesses and their professional advisers to help them thrive and grow in a new environment. If you are an overseas business investing in the UK, you are likely to be presented with a number of challenges. We can guide you through these. We start by finding out everything we need to know about your business. We go through your options with you and make sure all potential issues are taken into account. We then help you structure your UK operations in the best possible way.

We have over two decades of experience in successfully assisting overseas companies’ setup and run their business in the UK. We provide a range of accounting, advisory and compliance services in the UK to help companies meet all their day to day requirements. This can be offered as a menu of specific services, through to the full outsourcing of the finance function.

A key part of our service is aligning your business accounting and management reporting processes with those of your group. We use technological solutions to provide seamless, transparent and responsive services to both your UK entity and the group.
You can opt for end to end support, or select specific services including cloud accounting and management accounts, company formation and secretarial, VAT, payroll, tax compliance, statutory financial statements preparation, including migration to new UK GAAP or IFRS, group accounts and technical accounting assistance.

International desk – Expanding overseas

We can also help you expand your business internationally. Since we have been working internationally for many years, we understand the business practices & customs in other countries and can guide you to prepare for your new experience abroad.

With the support of member firms in more than 120 countries, we provide a first point of call to companies seeking advice on doing business overseas. To reap the rewards of doing business internationally, you must overcome challenges and pitfalls and make the most of the fiscal and regulatory opportunities. Having the right business advisors at your side, providing the right insights and knowledge when you need it, will go a long way to helping you achieve international business success.

We provide international accounting services that will help you meet the demands of international compliance without the cost and logistics of managing many different and remote, local finance teams. Leveraging technology, we can ensure reporting is available in real time – supporting your management team to make informed, timely decisions.

Our model is based on local specialists with a wrap-around of accounting, payroll, tax compliance and financial reporting and monitoring. This assures you timely, accurate and cost-effective service delivery. You can access local specialist expertise wherever you do business via a single UK point of contact. You will receive global coordination and project management that will make doing, and managing, business internationally simpler.


There is no doubt Brexit is having an impact on all businesses, but those that trade internationally (in both goods and services) are most affected. UK and EU businesses and consumers are finding out that the way business is carried out between the UK and Europe has changed. This will continue to evolve as the transitional arrangements are replaced with permanent ones.

This period of uncertainty will be challenging for many cross-border businesses. However, it will also offer opportunities for businesses willing to take risks and capitalise on the uncertainty by exploring new trading relationships.

Asectra works with both UK and EU businesses to maximise new opportunities and ensure Brexit causes as little disruption as possible. We identify the supply chain, customs, tax, border and regularity factors that are important and come up with specific and workable solutions for any snags.

We have vast experience working cross border and with professional advisors in other jurisdictions. We also have an excellent network of overseas professionals we work with for businesses that need such support.
