The Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa is an attractive and achievable option for many who are interested in living and working in the UK. You can apply for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa if you want to set up and run a business in the UK, and have a minimum of £200,000 to invest. The visa is initially granted for three years, after which you can apply for a further two year extension. Settlement in the UK is a possibility after these five years.

What do our Entrepreneur clients say about White Rose Visas?

White Rose Visas saved my time and effort IN A BIG way! When I applied for tier-1 entrepreneur visa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, I wasn't called even for an interview. I received my visa approved in 7 days! Apart from professional advice and completing my application form, I was given a detailed document checklist and a great business plan. My special thanks to Lauren and Mark.

I have used white Rose Visas for my T1 Entrepreneur visa application and I found them very professional, well familiar with procedures and above all very helpful in answering my queries. The process was carried out smoothly and according to plan. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I would like thank them for all the help and advice all the way through the process, and especially to Kim Day who was always there to answer my queries and to sort out any problem.

I'm completely overwhelmed by the great and impeccable service I received from White Rose Visas. From the very first day I put a call through to them regarding my Tier 1 Entrepreneur extension to the very last minute the application was granted these guys took me as part of the White Rose family. My case handler was Jason Griffiths: always professional and knew exactly how to pay attention to the littlest details. God willing I hope to see you guys for my settlement application in 24 months time. Thanks again and God bless you!

Jason and Kim have been very helpful in terms of visa advice as well as handling difficult situations with the Home Office. They have saved me a lot of time and energy with their professional attitude and warm approach.

I used White Rose for a Tier 1 application to the UK in 2016 Q2. My application was a bit complex but they were familiar with all requirements and were able to advise on how to approach them. I found their service invaluable and I'd recommend them to any one considering such an application.

I have been White Rose Visa’s client for almost 5 years and I am totally satisfied with their service. The staff are very helpful, friendly and organised. They respond to our queries quickly after carefully considering the Immigration Rules.

Really professional and well informed about Home Office policies. I got my Tier 1 Entrepreneur and ILR in the last few months just using their services and they know what they are doing. And thanks Natalie for your work on my files, really great help.

Since the inception stage wherein you filed my initial application, up to now, I should say I haven't met a more sincere and pleasant professional ... always so adept in advice and so patient with recurring mailers like me.

How can White Rose Visas help you?

At White Rose Visas, we offer a range of services for Entrepreneur applicants. As part of our Standard Entrepreneur Service, we complete the application form on your behalf, ensure that your documents perfectly meet UK Government requirements, and closely guide you through each stage of the application process.

Our Enhanced Entrepreneur Package is a complete support service to enable you to develop a suitable business plan, prepare and practice for your application interview, obtain your visa, and set up your new business such that Home Office requirements are met. The Enhanced Package includes:

  • Consultation on business options
  • Preparation of a complete, bespoke, business plan on your behalf
  • Highly detailed Market Research and Competitor Analysis written specifically for your proposed business
  • Pre-interview support and training, including a mock interview with ex-Home Office caseworkers, with written feedback
  • Advice on meeting the investment and employment requirements of extension application
  • Company and Director registration with Companies House (alternatively, self-employment registration with HMRC)
  • Employer registration with HMRC, including taxation requirements such as PAYE
  • Assistance with setting up payroll, so as to meet Government requirements
  • If required, liaison with other industry leading professionals essential to the start-up and management of your business, such as an accountant and contract lawyer

Our Enhanced Package is proving increasingly popular, not least because the Home Office now takes a forensic interest in the detail and viability of the applicant's business plan and market research. In our experience, the majority of Tier 1 Entrepreneur refusals are due to an inadequate business plan, insufficient market research, or interview failure due to applicant's lack of knowledge of business plan or market research.
