Establishing a US presence

Get answers to your questions and take the first step toward US expansion.

What factors do I need to consider when choosing what states to hire US employees?

When choosing a location for hiring your US employees, you will need to consider a series of factors, such as:  

  • Tax rates – how much tax are you expecting to pay?  
  • Access to your target market or customer base 
  • Filing fees and other administrative charges 
  • Available infrastructure, office space and transport links 
  • Geography, climate and land prices 
  • Time zones –  businesses with offices in Europe may wish their US employees to be based on the east coast for business hours to overlap. 
  • Availability of talented employees to work for your business
