The rate of income tax in the UK is considered rather high. However, with the proper structuring of income, the tax burden can be quite moderate. You should consider UK business registration taking into account the following conditions:

  • For LTD firms, an agency scheme is used, and offshore tie-in is employed, i.e. zero taxable base.
  • For LLP companies — if the structure of the company is planned competently, you can avoid the tax burden altogether. However, LLPs are not subject to contracts, which allows you to avoid double taxation. On the other hand, it is difficult for LLP to register a VAT number.
