Establishing a company in England
England is the main country of the United Kingdom (including also Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales). It is an island located west of the European continent, bordering on Scotland to the north, Wales in the west, and the English Channel to the south – separating between England and the French coasts. The country also has over 100 small islands close to its various shores. In the distant past England was still connected to the European land mass by a land bridge, but in time separated and migrated westward with the rising sea level. The name originally stems from the Angles - a Germanic tribe that settled in the area in the 5th and 6th centuries, and the official language is of course English. Population is currently estimated at 53 million, and that of the UK 80 million. It is a sovereign state within the British constitutional monarchy, the official head of state is Queen Elizabeth II and its actual political leader is the prime minister.
England is one of the central and most powerful countries in the world, and particularly in Europe. It is not a full member of the European Union and has cautiously chosen to keep its local currency – the pound sterling (GBP). Along with Wall Street in New York and Hong Kong to the Far East, the English capital, London, is one of the world’s central financial centers. Establishing a company there is an attractive opportunity, not only because England is a global financial center, but also thanks to the enormous range of advantages for registering companies.
