United Kingdom

Why the United Kingdom?

Changes in UK tax legislation, a strong economy and a willingness to encourage overseas investors have made the UK an attractive country for inbound investment. Our specialist teams within the UK are experienced in dealing with the range of corporate services an inbound business requires from set-up to cessation.

Our core areas of expertise

TMF Group in the United Kingdom has a professional team of experts specialising in accounting, company secretarial, taxation, payroll and structured finance services. We provide a full range of corporate services to help our local and international clients reduce risks, be compliant, control costs and simplify operations. By using our services, our clients are able to draw on the expertise of our specialists to keep their UK operations up-to-date with continuous changes in legislation, systems and markets.

London has always been a primary centre for global financial services, working closely with other core centres to ensure the financial services sector meets the needs of a global economy through innovative financing and capital movement.

Our UK office is well placed to support this industry providing services directly in the local market whilst drawing on the expertise of our global colleagues when working on international transactions. Through our global network of offices, we provide services to structures and transactions with assets throughout the world including Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Asia and South America.

We have a particular expertise in administering transactions with bespoke or multi-jurisdictional requirements, or for those clients going through periods of change or restructuring, often working alongside (or in replacement of) original service providers.

English law continues to be utilised for international agreements with a continuing requirement for non-UK based signatories without a UK address to appoint a UK agent to accept court papers if ever filed. With our process agent services we can assist in this area.

Our full range of services includes:

  • Accounting and Tax services: We take care of local statutory bookkeeping, full consolidated accounts and management reporting to relevant local and international standards. We also help you manage your tax and reporting obligations.
  • Capital Markets Services: We provide support to capital market transactions at local level and on a global scale. We help to manage and administer a wide range of transactions, from a simple escrow to a complex multi-tranche securitization, a project finance transaction or a syndicated loan. We can also help direct lenders in need of support to administer their loan portfolio.
  • Consultancy solutions: A flexible service allowing companies to deal with complexities created by expansion into new countries or growth in existing overseas locations.
  • Corporate Secretarial services: We can take care of recurring compliance filings, manage routine corporate changes and retrieve any official corporate documents from official registries.
  • Fund services: We work with structures across the full investment spectrum, from private equity and real estate funds, to trade financing, debt and fund of fund structures.
  • Governance services: We help you stay compliant, manage your risk and regulatory obligations, including your local legal requirements for Common Reporting Standard (CRS), Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), Know Your Customer (KYC), CbCr notification, Master File / Local File and Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) register. 
  • HR and Payroll services: We help you to apply and implement international policies in employment contracts and handbooks, and pay your staff in compliance with local law.

*Availability of our global portfolio is country dependent.
