Foreign company in the United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom different tax affairs require different tax registrations and result in unique tax numbers. You may need to register for more than one tax if your circumstances require it. 

VAT registration 

If your foreign company sells products or services physically in the United Kingdom for UK companies and individuals, you need to register for a UK VAT number. Lately the most popular reason is the Amazon FBA sales, where your products are held in a UK storage facility and sent to the buyers directly from the United Kingdom. This qualifies as a UK sale and UK VAT is payable on the transaction. 

We can help your foreign company to be registered for VAT and to submit any future VAT returns. 


If you have an employee who physically works in the United Kingdom as a distant worker, you have to register as an employer here. His salary falls under the UK law and UK income tax and National Insurance have to be deducted from it. You as an employer have to pay this tax and National Insurance to HMRC (tax authorities in the United Kingdom). 

We already have several clients falling under this rule, so we can help you as well to register as an employer in the United Kingdom and also do the monthly payslips and payroll submissions.
