WWA has helped a number of overseas companies access the UK market. You are coming to the UK to expand your business and make money, not to be distracted and burdened by the legislation and practicalities of setting up in a foreign country.
Is this you?
You may be unfamiliar with the UK market and competitors in your sector.
You may plan to relocate a member of staff to the UK who is knowledgeable about your company but not experienced in setting up new territories and needs guidance and support.
Your representatives may not be sufficiently fluent or confident to make introductory calls or negotiate business in English and would benefit from having a UK native attend meetings alongside them.
You may not want to risk the high cost and risk of relocating a member of staff but instead “test the water” by using our services to see the UK market really does have an appetite and offer potential for your particular service or product.
You or your representatives may not have the time or know how about where to go for the practical aspects of setting up shop and doing business in the UK.
Where do you go for help and advice?
Many companies coming to the UK can end up settling for a big London firm to advise them or rely on the list of recommended companies sent to them by the chamber of commerce or trade association. Whilst these are the easy option they can be expensive and may even become complacent as they are fed rather competing for your business. In some cases they are simply not appropriate for the size of your business and for your actual needs.
Where we differ.... and you benefit
We can carry out many of the same services as larger firms but at a much more competitive rate and will tailor the offer to your actual needs and budget. For specialist areas, such as employment law, we have wide network of experts we can connect you to.
