Innovative Business Solutions
The UK is one of the most open and welcoming countries for business and, with its reinvigorated global outlook post-Brexit, is attracting entrepreneurs from all around the world to participate in its global success story. Foreign entrepreneurs have three options depending on their circumstances. For those setting up their own business, first-time entrepreneurs can setup under Start-up visa route while more experienced entrepreneurs or businesspersons can setup under the Innovator visa route. For those seeking to open a branch of their existing business, the Sole Representative visa route makes the process straightforward. Each route carries unique benefits, so we recommend consulting a specialist to determine which is best for you.
Types of visa routes available
A two-year visa designed for first-time entrepreneurs to develop, launch and grow a UK business.
A three-year visa designed for experienced entrepreneurs or professionals to grow, launch and scale a UK business.
A three-year visa designed for overseas businesses seeking to launch a wholly-owned UK subsidiary.
Entrepreneurs and businesspersons can also start a business in the UK after gaining access by making a Tier 1 (Investor) visa-qualifying investment.
What you need to do to set up depends on your type of business, where you work and whether you take people on to help.
