General Information 

England, in contrast to some widely used in international tax planning jurisdictions, is neither an offshore or low tax area. British companies are required to submit annual returns and accounts. The tax rates in respect of companies registered in England are quite high. What is the secret of the British company to be attractive from the point of view of international tax planning?
First, a British company, according to all without exception European counterparts, is a reliable partner of transparent high tax jurisdiction. Second, banks are more sympathetic to such companies and as a result less requirements are applied. Third, in transactions with companies operating within the European Union and a number of jurisdictions that adopted the law restricting the cooperation with offshore companies, the British company looks solid and reliable.
