Time to move up
Welcome to our UK Expansion page, where we understand the challenges and opportunities of expanding your South African business into the UK market. We are here to help you navigate the process and make your expansion a success.
Expanding into the UK market can take many forms and there are three main approaches that South African companies can adopt:
Setting up a UK subsidiary: This approach involves setting up a separate legal entity in the UK and can be a good option for companies that want to establish a long-term presence in the UK.
Establishing a UK branch office: This approach allows a South African company to conduct business in the UK under the same name and legal structure as the parent company. It is a good option for companies that want to test the UK market before committing to a long-term presence.
Entering into a joint venture or partnership: This approach allows a South African company to enter into a strategic partnership with a UK-based company to expand into the UK market.
To employ staff in the UK, it’s important to understand the UK’s work permit system. We have a separate page dedicated to this topic, where we will explain the process from an employer’s perspective and how to apply for a work permit for your employees.
We also have a separate page dedicated to explaining how companies can send staff over for visits and the permitted activities. This can be a great way for companies to test the market and get a feel for the UK business environment before committing to a full-scale expansion.
Finally, we have a page dedicated to discussing how to register a business in the UK. This will include information on the different types of business structures, the registration process, and the legal requirements for operating a business in the UK.
At Move Up, we are committed to helping you navigate the challenges and opportunities of expanding your South African business into the UK market. Contact us today to find out more about our services and how we can help you expand into the UK.
