Our client was keen to explore and exploit the undoubted commercial opportunities presenting in the UK, not least the sizeable 'business-to-business' market.
As a technology business developing robotic and automated solutions, they were also interested in identifying know-how and intellectual property they could bring into their business.
In the initial stages our client was exploring partnerships with existing UK individuals and companies. We worked with them to evolve that thinking to consider drawing up a short list of target businesses they could acquire - to build UK momentum much quicker.
Around that, we supported them with compliance and guidance in terms of accounting, tax and governance - together with accessing key tax reliefs such as research and development tax credits.
Funding was a critical consideration and we were able to guide them on the funding opportunities available to them to finance the UK investment.
