Business immigration

Investors & innovators

 

The UK is one of the leading business locations in the world. With London being the world’s leading financial centre, this makes it an attractive location for investors and entrepreneurs to set up home.

The Tier 1 (Investor) route has closed and is no longer open to new applicants. Existing Tier 1 (Investor) visa holders remain eligible to apply to extend their visas, subject to specific criteria. Our specialist immigration lawyers can guide you through the intricate process of extending your Investor visa.

If you have an innovative business idea and would like to start a business in the UK, our immigration solicitors will simplify the complex process for you. The Innovator visa route is available to experienced business professionals intent on setting up an innovative business in the UK. Where relevant, the applicants must have access to at least £50,000 in available funds.

Whichever route you choose, our business immigration lawyers are on hand to assess your eligibility, guide you on the required supporting documents and will prepare the application form on your behalf to avoid any mistakes being made.

If required, we can also put you in touch with financial advisers and accountancy firms (if you require a business plan), assist you in switching/extending visas and apply for settlement when you are eligible. We can also assist in the preparation of any dependent visa applications.

“The team makes it very easy to ask questions and understand the advice given.”
