The UK is a Business Hotspot for High Net Worth individuals as there are many Business Immigration Investment opportunities in the UK for Tier 1 Investor Visa and Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa holders to take advantage of and benefit from. Despite all of the uncertainty of Brexit and the future for foreign migrants, the UK Government continues to publically welcome Investors and Entrepreneurs who can benefit from the opportunities that the UK has to offer and in turn the UK economy will continue to thrive and be a Business Hotspot providing many business opportunities for overseas Investors and Entrepreneurs.
Why is the UK a Hotspot for Business Immigration Investment under the Tier 1 Visa Route?
More overseas companies locate their businesses in the UK than anywhere else in Europe. This is because of the UK is innovative in the business world and individuals can receive a high return on investment. The Tier 1 Investor Visa and Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa routes of the Points-Based System allow overseas High Net Worth business persons to come to the UK in order to benefit from the UK as a Business Hotspot. Despite the uncertainty of Brexit, the UK continues to welcome overseas High Net Worth individuals and the UK remains and attractive option for overseas business persons to invest in or set up their businesses.
Tier 1 Investor Visa Applicants may potentially set up an Investment Vehicle in order to invest in the UK under the Tier 1 Investor Visa route to then enable them to work and study in the UK. This unique way of investing can add to the appeal of the UK for High Net Worth individuals which further demonstrate the UK as a Business Hotspot as this can lead to further employment and education opportunities. LEXVISA has affiliations within the financial services sector who can offer guidance on investment opportunities and discussing the Investment Vehicle option.
The Difference between the Tier 1 Investor Visa and Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa
Both the Tier 1 Investor Visa and Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa routes are attractive options for High Net Worth business persons looking opportunities in the UK as a Business Hotspot. However there are distinct differences between the two visa routes:
Tier 1 Investor Visa
The Tier 1 Investor Visa route is appropriate for High Net Worth individuals who intend on making substantial financial investments in the UK. The 1 Investor Visa Applicants must prove that they have access to a minimum amount of £2 million and they must demonstrate that they have opened a bank account in the UK for the purpose of investing at least £2 million. Tier 1 Investor Visa Applicants are also required to meet the maintenance and English Language requirements. It is important that Tier 1 Investor Applicants are aware that they cannot invest directly into property.
Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa
Unlike Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa Applicants, Tier 1 Entrepreneurs are not required to provide evidence of maintenance or meet any English Language Requirements. This makes the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa a very popular and attractive option. The Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa allows Applicants to come to the UK to either set up a new business or to take over an existing business. Tier 1 Entrepreneur Applicants are required to provide evidence that they have access to a minimum of £200,000 in investment funds ready and available to invest in the UK. The Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa initially allows Applicants to be in the UK for a maximum period of 3 years and 4 months, after which Applicants may then apply for an extension for a further 2 years.
