Looking for a new home for your business?

"We have found the people we have been able to attract in Scotland to be absolutely world-class." - Peter Platzer, CEO of Spire Global

5 reasons why Scotland is now

  • Scotland's got talent - Scotland has one of the highest concentrations of universities in Europe
  • Good value for money - The money you spend on your staff will go further here - cost of living in Scotland is up to 50% lower than in other parts of the UK
  • A great place to live - Our capital was ranked second in a global quality of life survey of 47 cities
  • We welcome investors - Scotland offered more incentive deals to foreign companies than any other part of the UK in 2017
  • We have a great track record - Scotland has been ranked the UK's top location for foreign direct investment outside London six years in a row

A record-breaking place to invest

The latest EY Attractiveness Survey 2018 confirms that Scotland has the UK's fastest growth rate for foreign direct investment (FDI).

Not only does Scotland have the UK's highest FDI growth rate, it remains the UK's most attractive inward investment location outside of London.
