Within a stable legal environment and one of the world’s prime financial markets, the UK provides an ideal location for new and existing businesses. In addition, the UK government has set a reduction in the burden of regulation on businesses as one of its main goals. There has also been a significant reduction in corporation tax making the UK an attractive jurisdiction for tax planning. The World Bank ranks the UK highly in Europe and in the World as a location for running a business and the establishment of a UK company can be completed within 24 hours.
The key advantages of locating in the United Kingdom are well known: legal certainty, a solid regulatory regime and a large pool of professional talent. Perhaps less well known are the tax advantages that locating in the United Kingdom can offer to individuals or to international businesses and investors. Appropriate structuring will also result in significant tax savings for international companies and HNW individuals.
Our offices are centred in London, Reading and Bristol, providing the Vistra Group’s four pillars of services: Corporate & Private Clients, International Expansion, Company Formation, and Alternative Investments.
Our roots in the UK go back to 1982, and the foundation of the tax group Chiltern Plc, upon which Vistra London was established as a private client business. Our current business is the combination of a number of successful companies, including the Nortons Group and USA2Europe which now form our International Expansion platform from our Reading office. In December 2016, Jordans Group, one of the oldest corporate and commercial legal and compliance services firms in the UK, joined Vistra, bringing with it over 150 years of experience.
The servicing teams, many of whom are multi-lingual, provide the full range of services for managing a UK company and ensuring it remains compliant under UK regulations. We also focus on providing bespoke private client and concierge services and have considerable experience in assisting our clients and their families with all manner of UK immigration issues, especially for non-EU nationals.
Our private, corporate and institutional clients greatly appreciate our capacity to offer tailored solutions on a one-stop service basis. This includes a network of specialist advisers that we work closely with and with whom we have built strong professional relationships.
