Check out the four steps to build a business in Europe already based in America.
Many fantastic products are invented, build and sold in America and, over time, it makes sense to enhance the business within Europe. The challenge is obviously the language but also important is the way of communication and the mentality that is very different between USA and Europe.
England – a perfect pit stop entering Europe
England is the perfect pit stop for American companies entering into Europe:
- The communication is easy
- The timezone is closest to America
- The business environment is a perfect match.
Deduct R&D costs with up to 230%
Developing a product in America has to be focused on the American market. When entering the European market, there will be a need for further development to secure the success.
The United Kingdom gives enhanced possibilities to develop your products further to fit the European market. With the option to deduct R&D costs up to 230%, having a UK company – and using local resources, skills and knowledge – will create a huge benefit for any American company. Establish a British branch, get the development done and start selling in the UK and in Europe.

4 steps to build business in Europe
There are four steps to build a business in Europe already based in America:
1. Establish the company in England
CPIE Services will set-up the UK limited company, prepare and host the legal entity and establish the administration base. We are specialists in establishing and hosting companies and have done so for many years. We support you in the initial phase and maintain this service in the future. We already support a huge number of companies, and we give you the opportunity to focus on your business – we do the rest.
Use the UK company as the base for European business and should your wish, we can also establish and secure a branch in other European countries.
2. Set up a local team to develop and finetune
There are many nationalities living in the UK and access to a huge mass of skills in languages, product development, marketing and business executing is available.
Depending on your type of product or service, there will be a need to adapt it to the different markets in Europe. Europe have many different types of markets and mentalities and it will take time to adjust and adapt in order to gain the optimal success.
Set up the local team to develop and fine-tune the products or services for the European market.
3. Grap the low-hanging fruits in England
As an American company with an American team, the low hanging fruits are in the English market.
There is a saying: “When you can conquer the UK market, you are ready for the European market”. CPIE Services can help you with the planning and execution in the UK market and secure a base for your additional business. We have a huge network in the UK and, jointly, we can secure your success.
4. Have a plan for entering the European market
Once established in the English market, an analysis will be made on the European market, but the language barrier should not hamper your desire to move into Europe.
CPIE has an awareness of the business world, and a great understanding of the local mentality in each of the individual countries, including native speakers, to take to you to the next stage of expansion.
Our business consultants can advise and help you with the business strategy, and execute on the agreed planning. With our extensive knowledge and network in Europe, we will be able to push you and your company into any corner of the European market.
