How Praxity helps Shorts’ clients

We regularly help our clients set up activities overseas
We help our clients set up activities overseas as they seek to expand into other markets or protect against risk. Setting up a subsidiary in Ireland is becoming quite common (particularly post Brexit) and through our Praxity Ireland contacts, we’ve been able to support the setup locally in Ireland, ensuring our clients have what they need to grow their business.

Relocating overseas in a tax-efficient way
A number of clients have taken the decision to relocate abroad, including New Zealand, the US, and France. Through our Praxity Alliance colleagues, we have been able to coordinate advice both overseas and locally in the UK, to ensure our clients’ move is tax-efficient and they are fully compliant.

Cross-border transactions
Working with Praxity colleagues in the US, Australia, Germany, Ireland (amongst others) we have been involved in many cross-border transactions, providing UK tax and finance due diligence, tax structuring and transaction support, with these, often being Private Equity backed deals.

Setting up in business in the UK
Through the Praxity Alliance, we have helped overseas businesses set up in the UK, through a branch, subsidiary, or standalone company, covering all aspects including structuring, VAT, employment and corporation tax, and accounting.
