Can a foreign national set up a UK business?
There are several factors to consider when setting up a UK business as a foreign national or non-resident. If you wish to operate the business from the UK you may require a visa, the process for application and types of visas depends on your nationality. The next step is to determine your business’ legal structure e.g is it going to be a private limited company (Ltd) or a partnership or a sole trader business? As a foreigner setting up a UK business, you will also need to register the business to a UK address at Companies House, register for the HMRC for tax purposes and open a UK business bank account.
