Business is Great Britain - A guide to UK taxation

We have recently been working with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), the Government department which works with UK-based businesses to ensure their success in international markets. It also encourages the best overseas companies to look to the UK as their global partner of choice.

A-guide-to-uk-taxationThe UKTI has just published its “Business is Great Britain - A guide to UK taxation", to which PwC contributed. The focus of the brochure is to promote the UK as a place to locate international business, helping to attract multinational companies and investment.

This publication was launched last week on the US West Coast with David Gauke MP, Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, Mike Williams, Director Business and International Tax, HM Treasury and Judith Knott, Director CT International & Anti Avoidance, joining PwC for a series of business briefings and meetings in LA, San Jose and San Francisco.

The guide to UK taxation provides an overview to overseas businesses on key areas of the UK tax regime and how it benefits those companies looking to expand their businesses to the UK. Information includes:

  • corporate tax
  • other taxes - including income tax, National Insurance, indirect taxes
  • UK incentives for innovation and creativity
  • tax making policy
  • tax administration
  • benefits of investing in the UK

The report is available to download from the UK Trade and Investment website.
