BUSINESS IN THE UK
Labour in the UK and particularly in London is comparatively expensive.
The UK government has been sending a clear message that the country is “open for business” as there is a continuing desire on the part of the UK authorities to incentivise businesses to come and stay in the UK.
Recent tax changes — including a reduction in the corporate income tax rate — have underlined the UK’s commitment to being a more attractive business location.
The UK's ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) sector is the largest in Europe, and is expected to grow to over £29 billion by 2012. The sector employs over a million people who contribute 10 % of GDP. The UK is home to over 100,000 specialist software houses, and is the world’s leading Internet gateway with 36 % of Internet traffic routed through UK servers.
