UK 

We guide Japanese companies to success.

Our Japanese Business Network

Our network in the UK brings together PwC professionals who are committed to working together and helping businesses involving Japan succeed. We assist Japanese companies with their business interests in the UK and around Europe, and we advise non-Japanese companies investing in Japan or trading with Japanese businesses.

Our UK team is a comprehensive network of more than 70 partners and staff with knowledge across markets and industry groups and expertise across PwC's service lines. Approximately half of our members are Japanese nationals, including secondees from our Japanese audit, deals, consulting and tax practices. As a result of this, we work closely with our colleagues in PwC Japan on behalf of our clients, whether they are investing into the UK or into Japan.

We provide services to more than 400 Japanese clients in the UK, spanning a wide variety of sectors including technology & communications, entertainment & media, retailing, automotive, industrial manufacturing and financial services. We are also proud to assist an equally broad range of non-Japanese clients with their businesses involving Japan.
