Tim Moss CBE, Chief Executive, Companies House


“I am honoured to be invited to take part in this meeting and would like to welcome you all to the UK. Our aim is that the UK should be one of the best places in the world to do business and at Companies House we are helping to make that happen.

The UK is one of easiest places to set up a company, demonstrated by the year on year increase in our register which is now over 3.7m companies. A company can be incorporated directly with us digitally and in less than 24hrs. This is complimented by the UKs world class compliance rates meaning company information is up to date and easy to access. That information is also free of charge making us one of the most transparent economies in the world. This means you can very easily find out details on new customers, suppliers and competitors helping you to make the decisions you need to do business – all this helps deliver confidence and lower the cost of doing business making the UK a great place to do business.

I would like to thank the Latvian-British Chamber for organising this visit and hope this will be the start of many successful business ventures.”
