We offer a friendly and personal service and your own dedicated consultant who will take the time to understand your business and offer bespoke packages tailored to your needs.

Do I need to use all of your services? What if I only need someone to do my payroll or VAT returns?

No it is entirely up to you which business support package(s) you would like to take and there is no restriction on the minimum number of services you choose.

For international companies we do advise that you have representation in the UK, and this is offered as part of our standard Administration package where we act as your Company Secretary and can represent to authorities on your behalf.

How do I know which services or business support packages I need?

Our compliance, health and safety services and business support packages are very flexible and will adapt to your company’s requirements. Your consultant will personally discuss with you your business needs and work out which options would be best for you.

Are the business support packages in the cloud so that I have to manage myself online or are you a real person?

No, we are all real people, contactable by phone, email and Skype, and will be dealing with all your admin personally from our offices in sussex. You are not required to log in or do any remote management online.

What is integrated support?

For international companies setting up and trading in the UK, Global FDI will support you throughout your first year in business and beyond, providing consultation, services and guidance at the level you need. We integrate all the services that you require for your new business venture  from one single point of contact without having to contact several different providers.

How long must I sign up for?

Our compliance and support services are for a period of 12 months and will automatically be renewed unless advised otherwise. You are free to modify your service packages in the second year and we will continue to monitor your company’s activities to ensure that you are receiving the best service. We also offer individual services, including our training, which are not on contract and are priced separately, please ask for a quote.

What do I get when I sign up?

A 1-2-1 consultation and assigned specialist consultant. Contact and advice whenever you need it by phone, email or Skype. Peace of mind from having access to a team of qualified professionals with a wealth of experience, for less than the price of employing a single full time junior staff member.

Please contact us with any questions. Our services and business support packages are flexible and we have over the years built many relationships and collaborations in order to assist our clients with everything that they require.
