Verfides is uniquely placed in the UK marketplace in being able to offer a quality “one stop shop” for businesses establishing a presence in, and individuals relocating to the UK.
We know that our clients prefer to have one single provider handling all of their consultancy, compliance and administrative requirements, whilst they focus on building their UK business and/or settling their family in a new country. This is where Verfides, with its seamless multi-disciplinary approach, adds real value. We never compromise on quality or client service.
There are a number of key areas in which we advise:
Establishing a UK Business Presence
An important piece of initial advice will concern the choice of an appropriate vehicle to establish a UK presence. This could be a representative office, a branch of an overseas company, a UK limited company or some form of UK partnership. We then offer full company formation and company secretarial services.
International Tax Advice
The fact that a new UK business will have non-UK stakeholders, whether individuals or companies, means that initial and ongoing tax advice must be fully international in scope.
Dividend, interest and royalty flows must be optimised to ensure minimal cross-border tax leakage. Our tax advice will make full use of UK domestic planning techniques, international bilateral tax treaties and EU Law. We will work with tax professionals in other jurisdictions where required to produce a robust global tax strategy.
As well as cross-border income flows, we can advise on planning for future capital gains on business disposals, transfer pricing and thin capitalisation issues, CFC considerations and international VAT planning.
Business Outsourcing Services
We can provide full accounting, payroll, tax compliance and company secretarial services for businesses.
Our team of qualified accountants can prepare UK statutory accounts and management accounts for all entities, in accordance with both UK GAAP and IAS. We can also assist with book-keeping and/or can help implement appropriate accounting software packages.
Where appropriate, we will prepare a year-end audit file for consideration by an external auditor. We have developed close relationships with a number of audit firms who can deliver our clients a very cost-effective statutory audit based on comprehensive preparatory files compiled by us.
prepare annual corporation tax/income tax returns and computations and quarterly VAT returns, as well as advising on instalment due dates.
Visas for non-EU Citizens
The Tier One Investor Visa is becoming more and more popular amongst wealthy individuals and their families as a means of obtaining UK residence. The application process is designed to be simple but must be managed carefully to maximise the chances of success. Other visas are available for individuals looking to generate significant economic activity in the UK which we can also help obtain. Verfides helps investors and their dependents to apply for settlement in the UK
