Setting up a business in the UK - Tier 1 Entrepreneur


Script for the above Video

The UK continues to strive to attract the brightest and best from all over the world. 


Duncan Lewis Solicitors recognises and shares this vision. 


Our team of experienced Immigration lawyers based in over 30 offices across the UK have both the legal knowledge and language skills to assist with your Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa application. 


With £200,000, a good grasp of the English language and a great business idea, foreign business people may be eligible to apply under the UK’s Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa.


Once the visa is granted, the key milestones are to:


  • Register as a director of a new or existing company, or register as self-employed individual within the first 6 months;
  • Invest £200,000 within the first three years; and
  • Hire two new members of staff for at least 12 months


Our team of immigration solicitors can assist with the preparation and drafting of your initial visa application. They will help ensure you are fully aware of the commercial aspects and relevant compliance issues under the UK Immigration Rules when drafting the business plan.


Our specialist lawyers will also ensure your financial statements and any other relevant third party documents are drafted so that they meet the stringent guidance of the Home Office or British Embassy.


When the visa is due for an extension, our immigration lawyers will work closely with you to ensure your financial documents and other relevant paperwork is prepared properly for submission at the Home Office.


For further information on the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa category, call our team of specialist immigration solicitors today for a free initial conversation, or e-mail us at businessimmigration@duncanlewis.com.  We look forward to hearing from you
