Scotland is an autonomous state within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, located in Western Europe. Scotland has an open, Western-style mixed economy, closely connected to the rest of the UK. Its main focus is oil and gas production in the North Sea shelf, electronics manufacturing, and the financial sector.
Businesses in Scotland have had a reputation for high reliability for many years. In its annual rating for Ease of Doing Business, the World Bank gave the UK the well-deserved 8th place. The highest scores were given to the following important components of successful entrepreneurship — paying taxes, trading across borders, and protecting minority investors.
Many European economies are very unstable right now because of the pandemic the world is experiencing. However, Scotland has remained a true "safe haven," a great place to register companies. Clevver specialists will assist in incorporating your company in Scotland in a timely manner, completely remotely, and are ready to provide additional services for the successful functioning and development of your business in Western Europe on request.

Business Taxes in Scotland
Although being autonomous, Scotland is still part of the United Kingdom and is subject to common business tax regulations like the rest of the country. Thus, the companies incorporated in Scotland are liable to the following taxes:
- Corporate income tax is 19%. If you run your business as a sole proprietorship, partnership, or limited liability partnership (LLP), you do not pay income tax. Nevertheless, you still have to pay tax based on the profits of the individuals involved in your business, — insists the Scottish International Development portal.
- VAT — 20% (for certain goods/services a reduced rate of 5%/0% applies). If a company does business in the UK or with organizations from the EU member states, it may be required to register as a VAT payer. Obtaining a VAT number is compulsory if the company's annual turnover is more than £85,000. Clevver's legal specialists can take care of the VAT registration of your business in the UK at your request.
