Affiliates in the UK
Foreign companies that do business in the UK can work through an affiliate without a legal entity status, officially known as the British representative office. An affiliate must be registered with the Companies House, and its data must be updated annually. It must also submit annual financial statements, although their type and format will depend on the requirements of the internal jurisdiction of the foreign company. Legal liability also applies to a foreign parent company.
