"WYKO Industrial Services, the leading UK industrial distribution company in the maintenance, repair and overhaul market, established its first branch in CEE in May 2006. This was a new venture for the company, and was effectively a “green field” operation rather than a joint venture or acquisition.

PwC are WYKO’s UK auditors and initial contact was made with the PwC Bratislava office in October 2005 during a preliminary investigative visit to Slovakia.
PwC were immediately able to understand and appreciate the potential difficulties of a UK company setting up in Slovakia, not least the language challenges.
Their network of contacts in many different areas proved invaluable – banks, payroll/accounting services, property agents, car lease companies etc.

PwC provided specific assistance in the following areas:

  • Company registration – establishing a limited liability company, WYKO s.r.o., which included incorporation and trade licences
  • Tax – corporate tax registration and VAT registration
  • Employment law – the adapting and translation of UK employment contracts to comply with Slovakian employment law

All advice and correspondence was easy to understand and very comprehensive, and all PwC staff were extremely helpful and pleasant, and were of huge assistance. Any queries were dealt with efficiently and promptly, and the overall standard of service was excellent."
