Tier 1 (Entrepreneur)

Helping you establish a flourishing UK business

"Very knowledgeable group" - Legal 500

The UK has a diverse open market economy - we can help you set up your business and succeed.

This route is for migrants who wish to establish, join or take over one or more businesses in the UK.

“Businesses large and small are the backbone of our economies, and enterprise is the engine of our prosperity. That is why Britain is – and will always be – open for business: open to investment in our companies, infrastructure, universities and entrepreneurs.” Prime Minister, Theresa May, Davos 2017.

Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) scheme enables enterprising people from all over the world to invest in their own business in the UK and obtain long-term residence. Having presented a viable and persuasive business plan, entrepreneurs must invest GBP 200K in the UK and create employment for at least two settled workers.

Subject to residence requirements, entrepreneurs who set up their business and reside in the UK for a five year period can apply for indefinite leave to remain (permanent residence) and ultimately British citizenship for themselves and their family.

The Home Office imposes a high level of refusals for unrepresented applicants. This is the result of complex evidence and document requirements. We will unravel the complexities of the scheme and guide you through every stage of the process providing peace of mind throughout the UK immigration journey to long-term residence.
