Welcome to Menzies’ US desk. It is no surprise to learn that the US is the single largest export customer for British goods and services. Conversely, the US provides the number one source of investment into the UK.
We can support both US business trading in the UK and UK firm doing business in the US. We have provided an outline of our services below, although we would be more than happy to have an initial conversation with you to discuss how we can help you.
USA businesses trading in the UK
From initial consultancy advice, and discussions about business models, through to set up and on-going support, our dedicated team works with many US companies to help them successfully conduct their business in the UK.
We recognise that trading in a new country can be daunting, so we have brought together an extensive range of services that makes this process easier for you. Our approach is based on practical experience, and as a first step you may find it useful to take a look at our guide, as well as our essential checklist, for setting up in the UK.
Please do get in touch with us as we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your business requirements and exactly how we can help you in the UK.
We have offices across London and the South East of England, close to Heathrow and Gatwick. Our connectivity in the local market also enables us to make suitable introductions to external service providers such as banks, lawyers, immigration and insurance agents.
Doing business in the US
The US remains the largest economy in the world and is particularly attractive for UK companies, given the mutual language, common history and special trade relationship.
Through our membership of HLB International we work with professional advisors throughout the US.
We have experience with clients setting up successful operations in a host of locations, from Boston and New York on the East Coast, from Seattle down to Los Angeles on the West Coast and many places in-between. Our experiences enable us to assist UK businesses in a variety of ways, including:
- Exporting goods and services to the US.
- Expansion of trade into the US.
- Structuring the cross-border operations.
- Co-ordinating and liaising with appropriate contacts in the US.
- Selection and implications of using various US entities.
- Advising on funding and foreign exchange decisions.
- Implementing transfer pricing policies and arrangements.
- Repatriating profits back to the UK.
