UK import and export duties: an overview

26 May 2016

Breakfast Briefing with Alex Altman of Blick Rothenberg

The UK is one of the most attractive places to do business – not only within the UK but also to run an international business.  When a business goes global from the UK, it has to consider a number of tax implications when providing goods and services cross-border.  These include European VAT and duty considerations, corporate tax and employment tax issues.
