Foreign Holding company owning UK Company

Postby 170872 » Mon Oct 14, 2019 12:30 pm

I have a questions regarding the holding or UK company by foreign Company

At the moment we have a Chinese restaurant business in the UK and we plan to expand the outlets. The owner of the current UK Business a Limited Company is 100% owned by individual shareholder from Singapore.

In Singapore there is a Holding company which now they planning to change the ownership of this UK company. The plan is the current UK Ltd company will be owned 100% by Singapore's holding company.

Just though i get some advice - my understanding is we need to seek HMRC for this purposed new structure.
Also the holding company will pump in money to UK to fund more outlets - is debts or Equity is the best choice?

Hope someone can shade some thoughts on both the questions above

Thank you
