I'm wondering whether it's common for a subject referring to a business to go with a plural verb in British English.

For example, would it be natural to say "QuickStart Inc. are planning to expand into Europe"?

I'd appreciate your help.

  • Really? I can only find posts related to pronoun choice, not subject-verb agreement involving names of organizations.
