UK Tier 1 business and investor visas

Invest in the UK and earn residency rights

The UK offers a range of investment visas that allow non-UK citizens the chance to invest in an existing business, start up a new operation or even invest capital amounts into the UK. There are two primary investment visas available to non-UK citizens who wish to live and work in the UK: The Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa and the Tier 1 (Investor) visa. If you're interested in moving your existing business to the UK, we can also assist you with that.

Three different ways to invest in the UK and gain residency

Whether you are looking to move yourself, your family or your business to the UK, we can help you apply for the right visa. More than that, our comprehensive service will ensure that every aspect of your move is taken care of.

Our accounting, immigration, forex and financial planning teams will all individually ensure that you and your assets are correctly migrated to the UK in the most efficient way.


The UK has always been popular for investors and entrepreneurs

The UK has long been an attractor of long-term foreign direct investment. A stable economy that functions as part of a stable political and social environment has helped the UK position itself at the centre of most of the world’s trade.

With a Tier 1 visa you, and your family can move to this dynamic country and begin furthering your business and residency ambitions. Are you looking to:

  • Make a cash investment into the UK?
  • Start a business in the UK?
  • Become a partner in a pre-existing UK business?
  • Expand or move your current business into the UK?

UK immigration for investors has never been easier

In the current climate, the UK is keener than ever to attract new entrepreneurs and investors. We are perfectly positioned to help you get your money to the UK and secure a second residency, and eventually nationality, for you and your family.
