Culture and inter-cultural relationships are current issues in business as in everyday life. When considering working with foreign people, it is essential to take cultural differences into account and to behave the right way. To what extent do intercultural relationships influence businesses in the United Kingdom? Culture can be defined as "all the ways of life including arts, beliefs, institutions of a population that are passed down from generation to generation" , so it includes "codes of manners, dress, language, religion, rituals, norms of behavior such as law and morality, and systems of belief as well as the art". In the case of United Kingdom, it is difficult to identify one single culture since it is composed of four countries (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland).
