Setting up in the UK from India
Where do you do business?
In 2014, Britain was India's top European destination for foreign direct investment, attracting 49% of funds from the country. The World Bank rates it as 'the 'easiest place to set up and run a business in the EU'. As a result, more overseas companies base their headquarters in the UK than anywhere else in Europe.
This builds on the surge in investment from India following the 2012 Olympics. Mayor of London Boris Johnson has commented:
"The story of Indian investment in Britain is absolutely phenomenal. The UK is set to become the No 2 car producer in the whole of the European Union, largely thanks to Indian investment in the UK. That is a fantastic synergy and we are very, very keen to encourage it."
Reasons for the UK's attractiveness include its low tax rates, stable government and flexible workforce. It also has superb transport links. The UK is a world leader in innovation and is at the forefront of the global tech industry. Doing business in the UK is a must for many global businesses.
