Setting up in the city
A brief guide to establishing a financial services business in the UK
London is Europe’s largest international banking centre and the European headquarters of over a third of Fortune 500 companies. All major global banks and financial institutions have a presence there.
In response to the growing demand from overseas financial services firms looking to set up operations in the UK, Deloitte, in association with UK Trade & Investment and The City UK, has launched a brief guide to opening a financial services business in the UK. It covers:
- UK regulatory requirements, including FSA authorisations;
- Structuring options;
- Tax implications;
- Personnel and immigration matters;
- Real estate matters.
