Buying a business in England

Napoleon once described England as “a nation of shopkeepers”, and to this day, the essence of that description holds true. Much of England’s renown on the world stage still stems from the global reputation of its commerce and industry, and the majority of UK businesses are SMEs (small to medium sized enterprises), which form the backbone of the English economy. It’s not all shops, however; thousands of English entrepreneurs make their living in other areas such as engineering, manufacturing, services and the creative industries, to name a few. 
England has the highest GDP per capita in the UK - a fact attributable to its transport connections and convenient global time zone, amongst other things. The historical reputation of commercial centres like the City of London, Manchester and Liverpool, combined with the nation’s high standard of third level education (England is home to some of the oldest educational institutions in the world, and more than 80% of the UK’s universities are in England) mean that England is held in high regard globally when it comes to locations for running a business.
