Our new series will help US- based organisations cut through the macroeconomic and geopolitical noise surrounding the UK. We’ll empower you to navigate the UK business environment and make the most of its unique growth opportunities.

The UK and US are each other’s largest trading partners. Goods and services worth billions are traded across the Atlantic every month. US businesses have invested over $600 billion in the UK; more than 42,000 US firms export here and over 7,500 have UK operations.

So amidst ongoing Brexit uncertainty, what does the future hold for the UK-US trading relationship?

In the first part of a new series, we take a look at the UK’s unique business environment, exploring the factors that have long made it the go-to investment destination for US organisations and which, despite Brexit, aren’t about to change.

Our report looks in-depth at the UK’s business, economic and talent ecosystem – before looking ahead to the post-Brexit world and what the future might hold for the UK-US trading relationship.

A unique role in business between the US and UK

KPMG in the UK has a permanent UK-operated presence in the United States. KPMG UK (Transatlantic) LLC. provides advice and services to US companies with a presence in the UK, or those looking to establish one there.
