London - Gateway to Europe

Scaling up your business by expanding into new territories is never easy. Understanding the nuances in culture, business practice and regulation is a challenge that is extremely costly and time consuming without the right advice.

PKF Littlejohn can give you the advice you need to launch your business in Europe. Our seamless service brings together the experience of working with hundreds of companies seeking to grow their business globally.

Our Inward Investment team works with foreign companies coming into the UK, providing the advice a business needs to set up and trade in the UK and Europe. We will advise you on the appropriate structure and the cost and regulation implications this has for accounting, tax, and employees.


We offer a fully integrated multi-entity Outsourced Financial Accounting solution that provides you with the Management Information you need to run your subsidiary companies. The service is run from our London office and uses cutting edge cloud technology. To learn more about this service go to our Outsourced Financial Accounting page.

We can also advise you on local and International GAAP issues that affect you, as well as year-end statutory reporting requirements.


From inception our tax experts will help you navigate through each of the direct and indirect taxes that will affect you, from registration to year-end compliance and everything else in between. We will advise you on Transfer Pricing risk, Corporate Tax, VAT and Employee taxes, liaising with the tax authorities on your behalf and making you aware of the rate and timing of the tax liabilities you will face.


Becoming an employer in a foreign jurisdiction can be daunting, whether employing locals or sending people over from your home country. You will need to understand the tax and employment law aspects, as well as the country entry requirements.
