What was the challenge?
Xerimis wanted to grow its UK and European customer bases
and looked to set up a UK distribution facility for clinical supplies
which could support the import and export of goods between
Europe and the US.
How did Blick Rothenberg help?
Blick Rothenberg advised on Xerimis’ trading model and on
the VAT treatment for the movement of goods into and out of
Europe, and between European Union countries. We managed
on-going payroll compliance, advised on capital allowance
claims, and provided year-end financial statements preparation,
audit and corporation tax compliance services.
Alongside this, we offered advice on employment-related
matters from contractual advice to more commercial advice on
benefits and structuring attractive packages.
What was the result?
Xerimis found a suitable UK site and has set up a distribution
facility. Management has been able to focus on the supply chain
and growing Xerimis’ UK and European business while Blick
Rothenberg took care of the UK company’s tax and accounting
compliance needs and helped to implement a trading model that
worked from a commercial, operational and tax perspective.
Ann Flanigan, VP of Finance for Xerimis, has commented that,
“Going to Blick Rothenberg made our initial set-up in the UK
much simpler than it would have been. They were able to advise
us on a range of issues around employing people, shipping
costs and generally operating a business. Having one team
to provide that range of expertise really helped us to focus on
establishing and growing a successful business.”
