- Number of non-UK nationals forming companies in UK has soared by 160% since 2010

Thousands of overseas entrepreneurs are forming companies in the UK to avoid red tape in their own countries, according to research from start-up specialist Made Simple.
More than 170,000 non-UK nationals registered firms with Companies House in 2015, a staggering 160% increase since 2010.
The figures support the current ‘open for business’ sentiment being echoed by some of the country’s leading politicians and business leaders post-Brexit.
