Foreign Directors

As seen on

Newco Legal are the only lawyers I found that offer fixed-price advice and help for a foreign director like me. The service was affordable and helped me during the incorporation of our English company and all the setup requirements afterwards.”

Xing S, Director of Nutranzen Hospitality Ltd

Being a foreign director or shareholder of a UK company is not easy or simple. There are multiple legal requirements that must be satisfied before, during and after the incorporation process, together with confusing and time-consuming compliance matters around licensing, permits, HMRC and more. For foreign, non-resident, individuals, this process is even more difficult. 

Newco Legal provides a dedicated service, by its team of qualified British lawyers and client management team, to offshore, non-resident, directors and shareholders of UK companies. 

Our legal bundles include the incorporation process, corporate structuring and governance, tax, insurance, company secretarial and more.
