Our world is shrinking. Advances in transport and technology mean distance and borders are becoming less and less relevant, and in many ways, it’s never been easier to relocate or expand your business overseas.

Effective international tax planning is, regrettably, not quite so easy. In fact, with ever-evolving tax guidelines it’s as important as ever to get things right from the start and understand where you stand.


From established multinationals, businesses looking to move to the UK for the first time, growing UK businesses starting their first overseas venture, to individuals looking to move abroad – our international tax advisors work with businesses and people just like you.

We’ll simplify the process, overcome any challenges and make the most of all your international tax planning opportunities together.

We’ve got strong connections with a number of international networks, too. That means we can assemble cross-border teams with knowledge and skillsets tailored to your location and your needs.

Our international tax team will help you

Save money

Our in-depth knowledge of tax systems around the world means we’ll be able to identify and take advantage of tax saving opportunities. That might include claiming any double tax relief or international structuring advice to help you claim generous tax reliefs such as Research & Development (R&D) tax credits or Capital Allowances.

Stay compliant

In addition to our in-house tax team, our international networks mean we can offer global coverage of any tax legislation rules and changes that matter to you. Whether you’re coming to the UK or moving overseas, we’ll support you with your day-to-day accounting as well as your year-end process. And we can help you to prepare for any enquiries from the tax authorities, liaising with them and bringing them to an acceptable conclusion on your behalf.

Look after your expats

Whether you or your people are travelling for permanent employment or for a secondment, to or from the UK, we’ll talk you through the ins and outs of Expatriate Tax. Then, we’ll help you to decide which approach is best for you.


We think you’ll notice something different about our tax geeks. We’re always looking at the bigger picture, analysing and advising you on every detail of your international tax planning strategy.

What we offer is less of a service, and more of a partnership. We always keep things personable, and we communicate consistently with all our clients – not just at year-end or other important dates.

We’re all sat together, and you’ll always have one consistent point of contact. For you, that’s great for continuity, and for us, it’s a great way for us to learn more and get to know your business inside out. That’s when our tax geeks really shine, and that’s when you’ll find out why they’re award-winners.


Transfer pricing

We’ll help you to suitably price, benchmark, document and support your transactions in a consistent, easily understood way. We’ll also advise and assist you in establishing internal review processes that ensure you won’t fall foul of any rules, face any transfer pricing tax adjustments, or any penalties.

Overseas expansion

We help businesses understand the tax implications of their international expansion. We support your growth and use our global network of connections to make sure you’re meeting the tax obligations of your chosen destination planning out and structuring your expansion to minimise any tax leakage and ensure you’re operating in the most tax efficient way possible.

Setting up in the UK

If you’re not familiar with the UK’s tax system, laws and regulations – it might feel like a risk. However, with some effective planning and expert advice, it can quickly become an exciting opportunity. We know the UK’s laws and regulations inside out. And we’ll work with you to structure your UK business in the most efficient way possible.

“Excellent service for our first year audit.”


“R&D Claim: The results were better than expected. The additional cash will enable us to increase profitability”

ALAN, JAN 2024

“R&D Claim: The results were not as good as previous years. The additional cash will allow us to further invest in our R&D program.”


“Great to have a personal relationship with the whole team. Always willing to help. Sometimes a little slow to respond on some issues (but then again so are we). Audit team are brilliant, bar audits far to long now owing to the amount of sample data we have to provide, which is hard when you have a small team and limited time.”


“Great team, and much improved communication and pro-active engagement over the past three months.”

MARK, DEC 2023

ROB, DEC 2023

“R&D Claim: Having worked with the R&D team at CP for a few years now, I had a good idea what to expect. As per usual they exceeded our expectations. The additional cash will allow us to invest in our fleet.”


“Excellent service. Need to ensure pricing is competitive.”


“Good insights provided. Nice team to deal with. Need more consistency of team members and where this is not possible a better handover should be provided to new members. Need strong manager oversight on all audits, in particular where there are complex transactions etc. Improved communication between audit team and finance functions within the business.”


“Final Packs are taking too long, communication”
