General characteristics of the country's investment

UK is a highly industrialized country, has an important place in the world economy. It ranks sixth in the world and in third place in Western Europe in terms of GDP, the fifth largest in the world in terms of industrial production. It accounts for 4.2% of total GDP and 1% of the population (58 million).. Working-age population makes up almost half the UK population. In terms of industrial production, UK ranks fifth among countries with developed economies. By the volume of foreign investment the UK has the second highest in the world. (UK National Statistics, 2012)of the ranking of London, explains Clive Bull who is head of investments in Central London at Cushman & Wakefield: «International investors foresight London as a haven of salvation of the world market, and interest in it from their side continues to grow. For private investors, both foreign and local, London interestingly is a combination of minimal risk and a higher return than bank deposits. Although traditionally considered London in the first place when making investment decisions at the international level or to invest in European markets, in this economic cycle in London before the restoration of all commercial real estate market. In addition, the projected reduction in supply over the next few years, says the growth rates and good financial performance during this period. This will facilitate the inflow of investors and the emergence of new investment opportunities.. "(Cushman & Wakefield, 2012), head of research in Europe, Cushman & Wakefield David Hutchings notes that investors are attracted not only due to a minimal risk investment and a high return but also high and secured returns on their investments - this is confirmed by the gradual growth of interest in the Asian markets. Only 5 years ago in the world, there were only twenty three Asian market for investments. In 2010, their number grew to twenty five cities which were already from Asia, compared with 5 in Europe and 7 in North America. However, despite improvements in the macroeconomic situation in 2011, it is still far from stability, and most investors would prefer to focus on less risky markets. According to experts, while the investment community is confident in the government program to reduce the UK budget deficit, London will remain a leader in investment. (Cushman & Wakefield, 2012)


influx of foreign investment in the UK in the last 2-3 years is growing, aided by a favorable business climate created in the country. According to the above study, the investment advantages of the UK are starting a business, registering property rights, credit, taxation. , experts noted some problem, in their view, the issues of doing business in the UK as a license and hiring workers.

It should be noted that the UK is a world leader in terms of existing international treaties on avoidance of double taxation. Significant role in attracting foreign capital into the country are also bilateral agreements with other countries in the UK to promote trade and investment, and similar agreements in force within the EU.

A characteristic feature of the UK economy is its high degree of internationalization. Over 18% of its GDP is realized abroad, and import quota exceeds 20%. For the UK, in the last century has become "concentration" of the international division of labor, characterized by intra-industry specialization with broad development in parts and complex technological specialization. Although there are no sharp contrasts in district development, it allocates 10 economic regions in the degree of development of productive forces and production specialization, especially the formation of the economy, the predominance of existing regional industrial relations: South-East (the capital), West Midlands, East Midlands, Lancashire, Yorkshire, North East, North West, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. (Solberg, 1992)

Business conditions in the UK and promising markets

The factors that provide competitive advantages to firmsin the misty Albion for a long time attracted entrepreneurs around the world. This is not surprising - after all, a country with a strong entrepreneurial traditions and customs. In addition, many businesses in England can get 100% to realize their entrepreneurial potential. are no restrictions for foreigners in matters of a business or real estate. Britain - the island is not only in geographic terms. Kingdom stands out in terms of domestic law. Terms of business organization is different from other EU members and require fewer formalities and less capital. Registering a company takes place in 4 hours, and secondly, there is no need to make capital base. For example, in Germany for the opening of the company , it require € 25 thousand. In some EU countries, before registering the company, the future owners must obtain local tax included. Of course, for foreigners, this is additional procedure. In addition, almost all EU countries there is a need to make the charter capital of at least € 3-4 thousand. (UK National Statistics, 2012)today has attracted many businessmen to its legal framework and its conditions that allow the lowest cost and in a relatively short time to register a company. Despite the fact that the UK offshore in the full implementation of this concept does not belong to an offshore jurisdiction, but only in a few points corresponds to the parameters of offshore, this area is still quite respectable for the registration of companies. There are also a number of reasons why the name should remain offshore UK.

And this is true not only for Britain, where the idea of ??a coffee bar was picked up by networks catering faster than anywhere else in Europe. This situation is practically everywhere, even in the eastern part of the continent. From the perspective of entrepreneurs and consumers, coffee bars - it is no less prestigious than computer companies or design studios.

London - the capital of coffee

than 15 years since London's espresso cafe new wave spawned a boom of coffee houses across Europe. Early players like Aroma, Seattle Coffee and Madison's already left the scene, however, such international brands such as Starbucks, which opened its first European subsidiary in London's Kings Road in 1997 and has a large number of coffee bars in London (120) than in any other city in the world, showing significant activity. Another strong player is a member of the British Whitbread group company Costa, which, though numerically represented in the UK a large number of coffee shops, but entered the London market after Starbucks. However, recently it has started to develop much more active part, due to a more original approach to the selection of sites for new stores and franchising policy. These stores can be found in Banks (joint venture with Abbey National), supermarkets (Tesco), offices, bookshops (Waterstone's and WH Smith), as well as in more typical places - on the streets in the city center, railway stations, airports and shopping centers. (Starbucks Coffee Company, 2012)Nero, the coffee brand number 3 in the UK, particularly firmly settled in London, with its 102 stores. All property of the company. Last year the company became even more pronounced with the installation of trading on the removal of mobile kiosks Nero Express main railway stations, where previously housed AMT. After attempts to divide the ownership of other firms the company returned in 2007 to the private sector, and company founder Jerry Ford became CEO and majority shareholder of the company.(Caffè Nero, 2012)has become increasingly important and traditional bars. Network of bars with large rooms, J D Wetherspoon offers a wide selection of coffee in all its branches 685 (many of them - "oversize" bars in London and surrounding area) and has already invested about £ 6 million in the necessary equipment and training. How to compare visits to bars, visiting coffee bars, remains a contentious issue, but Wetherspoon now expects to sell at least 500 cups per week in each of their establishments. The network is growing at a rate of 30 units per year and aggressively promoting the pricing policy more affordable than Starbucks (which has raised prices twice in 2007) and other brands of coffee bars.King, another giant chain of pubs, posted operating under a franchise agreement Coffee Republic branches in 30 of its bars, and next year plans to add 40 more.addition to price competition Wetherspoon is not a key factor in sales of coffee in London, where the average bill in a coffee bar reaches 3.32 lbs. Chain of sandwich bars, Benjy's, which once was known for a cappuccino 30p, went bankrupt in 2007, all the last decade, McDonald's coffee bars placed the McCafe with reasonable prices in some major institutions in London, but now there was only one coffee shop in the Birmingham area. New style of this network, which offers an extended selection of coffee in the main menu, it is considered more appropriate. (McCafé Coffee , 2012)

Hardly able to compete with the major brands of coffee, a hybrid point of the German network Tchibo became more noticeable in the London suburbs, mostly in the main streets of the suburbs. It is also one of the few coffee networks to advertise on television. Of the 76 points in 52 Tchibo is coffee-bar with a wide selection of drinks based on espresso, sandwiches, pastries and cakes next to the shelves with inexpensive goods for the home. In the largest institutions of 25-30 seats. At the coffee bar between 10 and 60% of overall sales, depending on the location of the point. (Tchibo Coffee Service <#"justify">Key features of the London market

The growing population. After decades of decline in London there is a net increase in population of 50-70 thousand people a year, according to some studies. The official population of London was about 7.5 million people in the middle of 2006, and the total population of the suburbs - 8.3 million people. (UK National Statistics, 2012)

The local nature of the purchases of coffee requires a concentration of stores in key areas, although prices there are among the highest. Companies need to focus on the key elements of trade, depending on time of day, such as the organization breakfast, and in most running stores locations receive a maximum return in the evening. Caffe Nero is usually close later than other stores - no earlier than 7 o'clock in the suburbs and at 11 pm in some central branches (4 in the morning in Soho).

Competition in the field of "caffeine sales" with well-known brands from other segments of the food market - from a long-established in the market sandwich networks such as Pret A Manger, EAT and the more expensive institutions such as Carluccio's, Paul, Apostrophe, and Le Pain Quotidien, to hundreds of "niche" cafe selling donuts, burritos, muffins, juice and pastries.

Assessment of risk and costs

, legal and economic risksrisk arises from the storage assets in another country and is linked to political, legal, economic changes and problems of control, as well as cultural and linguistic characteristics and geographical location. Country risk is relatively small in England. But do not forget that the concentration of its resources in only one market, increases its exposure to country risk.belongs to the minor political risk. Primarily a political risk include a variety of political crises and scandals, strikes and mass unrest, natural disasters and man-made disasters, military actions, the sovereign status of the country, changing the existing regime of sanctions and the international community. The political situation in the country for quite some time has been and remains stable. (Kevin, 2009)law include the risks associated with changes in legislation and intergovernmental agreements in the field of taxation, separation of products, tariff and non-tariff protectionism, tariffs, etc. The probability of tax changes is high, so they constitute the main source of risk. The rest of the UK legal regime is fairly stable and not prone to significant changes in that virtually eliminates the influence of these risks of doing business. Clarity and certainty to the UK legal system also minimizes the possibility of manifestation of the risks involved. (Michel Henry, 2003)group of economic risks include changes in the level of interest rates and inflation, they also are due to the interconnectedness of the economic systems of different countries. There are two main effects of the economic risk for the company in the event of adverse exchange rate changes:

? reduction of profit on future transactions. This is called the direct economic risk;

? loss of a certain part of the price competitiveness compared to foreign producers. This economic risk is indirect. (Meldrum, 2010)example, a coffee house located in the UK feels the constant need for supplies of coffee, which is estimated in U.S. dollars. The growth of the dollar will increase the cost of coffee in pounds sterling, which will increase the price of gold to drink in the future.indirect economic risk is costly changes and price competitiveness caused by the movement of exchange rates.firms may work abroad, achieving high sales volumes, increasing revenue and reducing operating costs by increasing production. This will enable them to improve their position in competition with firms that do not have to go beyond the boundary.the British economy is out of the protracted crisis, the economy is barely creeping up very slowly. The recession lasted one and a half years and was the most protracted and deepest since the mid-1940s (when the volume of national output declined in the aftermath of World War II)., the decline in GDP by 4.8% last year was the deepest since 1931, when production in the country dropped to 5.1%. British recession was the longest among the economies of the "Big Seven" who were in critical condition in an average of one year (however, in Italy, the recession lasted for five quarters). In fact, it was not the worst, if we evaluate the difference between the pre-crisis peak, and reached bottom. Here dubious "palm" keep Japan (8.6%), followed by Germany (6.7%) and Italy (6.5%). However, the earlier recovery of these economies means that in terms of decline in production - by 6.0% between 2008 and the beginning of the third quarter of 2009 - Britain surpassed only by Japan (7.7%) (UK National Statistics, 2012)to business research, market conditions, recovery is more confident, and labor market showed greater resistance than the UK continues to grow. In 2009 it was 2.9% in 2010 - 3.7%. In 2011 - 4.4%. Inflation in the UK is likely to slow during 2012 to 2%, according to a quarterly report to the Bank of England inflation. At the same time, the British central bank believes that the timing and extent of decline is uncertain. (UK National Statistics, 2012)will depend on the evolution of world prices, the degree of increase in inflation expectations, after a period of high inflation and how much the company will seek to restore profitability.also include raising the base interest rate the Bank of England from the current level of 0.5% per annum to 1% by 2011 and to 2% by the end of 2012.

Costs of organizing and conducting business

minimum wage in the UK is £ 6 per hour. In the same month it will be equal to 1014.12 pounds. (National Minimum Wage, 2012)the past decade, coffee prices have reached "peak" mark because of the threat reduction in harvest due to drought in Brazil and Vietnam, is the largest supplier and producer of coffee in the world. According to the International Organization for coffee producers weather conditions significantly affect the amount of coffee crop. Thus, in recent years, the lack of rains in Brazil leads to a significant reduction in the production and supply in the market, namely the production of coffee here last season fell by 23% to 32.6 million bags, which supplies around the world have fallen to 114 million bags, up almost 6% less than last year. (Free Press ,2012)coffee crop and therefore the proposal is accompanied by a volume growing demand in emerging markets, which have arisen due to rising incomes and consumer marketing campaigns to promote the drink. Over the past five years the demand for coffee rose 8% in the U.S. and nearly 6% in Europe, in the UK by 35%. for India, from which it will do for raw coffee Cafe Coffee Day, according to experts, India's coffee production in the next marketing year will increase by 6.7%, the yield will reach 322 250 tons of coffee, compared with 302 000 tones last year and Café Coffee Day can import raw coffee in substantial quantity from India due to bilateral trade agreement between two countries. India being earlier British colony, UK government has soft view for India and takes interests in its development. (Free Press ,2012)
