With our specialist knowledge of the UK Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Visa, we work closely with you to understand the product or service you are looking to provide, and develop a business plan that demonstrates your understanding of the market and expertise in the field, enabling you to cover all the requirements of the Home Office ‘Genuine Test’ and secure your Tier 1 Visa.
We have experience of writing business plans across a wide range of sectors including healthcare, education, retail, luxury goods, fine art, hospitality, tourism and oil.
We will assist you by either writing a full business plan, or reviewing and developing an existing plan, to ensure it contains all the information required by the Home Office.
Once your Visa has been granted, we can then help you to set up your business quickly and efficiently to ensure your smooth transition into the UK.
Moving forward we provide Director Services and Professional Support, from accounting and finance, to marketing and HR support, as and when you require it, to meet your business needs.
What is a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Visa?
The Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Visa enables business people who are non-EEA citizens the opportunity to operate a business within the UK, bring dependents with them, and potentially work towards permanent residence.
What is the Genuine Test?
The Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Visa Genuine Test is designed to establish whether an applicant is capable and genuinely intends to set up and run a business in the UK.
The business plan is now a compulsory part of the application for a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Visa and is key to passing the Genuine Test.
We will ensure your business plan includes all the information required by the Home Office, including:
- How the investment of £50,000 or £200,000 will be spent in the overall running of the business
- Details of the 2 types of employees you will need to run the business effectively (employing a minimum of 2 ‘settled’ people for at least 1 year each is a key requirement of the Genuine Test)
- Information demonstrating your understanding of the market, your competitors and target customers
