UK company registration

Corporate Registration in the UK
Located in the west of Europe as an island country, the United Kingdom of Great Britain, comprised of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and some small islands, faces Europe across the North Sea, the Strait of Dover, and the English Channel. It borders the Republic of Ireland, and its coastal line stretches a total of 11,450 km. The country is separated into four parts, namely, England (which is located in a plain in the southeast), Wales (which is situated in a mountainous area in the Midwest), Scotland (which is located in a mountainous area), and Northern Ireland (which sits in a highland and mountainous area).
èAdvantages of a company registered in the UK:
A company registered in the UK may set up its bank accounts in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and the UK, and is required to submit an annual return. In addition, its information is available for public inspection, enjoying a high level of credibility. In case that no business operations take place in the UK, the company is fully exempted from tax, but may purchase and sell properties in the UK. It may also be listed in the world’s major financial markets including Hong Kong. Companies registered in the UK enjoy a better legal status in the international market, and are under the protection of the Commonwealth.
Upon incorporation, the UK company is required to apply for a VAT (value-added tax) registration number in case that it wishes to operate local businesses related to liquor and cigarettes in the UK. The tax registration number requires the company to file taxes regardless of whether any business is conducted in the UK, and accounting fees will be charged as an additional expense.
