The right business in the wrong location can be unworkable or worse. Selecting the right UK location for your business requires the capability to understand its longer term strategic needs not only in terms of its operations and logistics but also the needs of local and relocated personnel.
Our site selection services take account of a whole range of macro-economic, logistical and lifestyle factors. These factors include regional development grants, taxation, the quality of communications, transport infrastructure, education, housing, the skills and availability of a workforce.
And while the UK is a great place to live, the economy is strong, education is great and there is a solid healthcare system there are huge and subtle cultural regional differences that will influence the siting of a UK business.
Taxation reform has created a competitive business friendly environment in the UK. Once you have made the decision to establish a UK presence we take care of all tax, business support and regulatory matters. From complex tax management to simple book keeping, our team of tax and financial management specialists, project manage and simplify the whole process.
UK tax reform has reduced the headline rate of corporation tax to 20 per cent. Reforms to the taxation of foreign profits and incentives are offered for innovation activity and R&D done in the UK. There is a real focus at a political level at making the UK the most competitive regime in the G20 and we make sure that both the financial and legal frameworks are structured to allow the business to get on with growing its share of the UK market.
Over the past thirty years, the UK has undergone a transformation in the quality of its business management and labour relations. A lot of this transformation, across both manufacturing and service sectors, has been driven by the inward investment on greenfield sites of enlightened foreign employers.
When a business needs to hire an entire new workforce there are huge risks of getting it wrong in terms of attitudes, behaviours as well as the more obvious skills and capabilities. Getting the right alignment between the corporate strategy and the new workforce can provide exceptional, sustainable financial and motivational benefits.

I started working with Jeff at OASiS, and we have enjoyed a close working relationship since that time. He brings great expertise in financial management allied with a broad view of what makes businesses successful.
I have worked with Howard for many years and have found his ability, rare in my opinion, of instantly understanding the critical factors that underpin any tax question and translating that into a commercial decision been invaluable to our relationship.
