Start your business in the UK

The United Kingdom is a prosperous market for anyone wishing to expand abroad, as it has 67 million potential consumers and it is the fifth largest economy in the world. It also attracts more foreign investment than any other European country, and it is the easiest European country to do business with, according to the World Bank.

If you wish to either set up or expand your business in the United Kingdom, The Department for International Trade (DIT), which is the specialist Government department, can provide a fully integrated advisory service, delivering the latest business intelligence through a global network of commercial teams worldwide.
