PREPARING AN APPLICATION FOR A START-UP VISA

Before making an application, an individual must check if they have the correct supporting documents, one of those important documents is an endorsed business plan which must demonstrate that the business is sustainable and scalable. There are no one-fits-all criteria, and the Home Office will determine the application based on the strength of the business plan and the applicant’s background and knowledge of the business plan as well as commerce.

Our Start-up Visa Team not only understands what types of a business plan the Home Office Caseworkers consider suitable but also keeps the knowledge of the Home Office current reaction to certain types of applications, which means that we can detect any signs of failure at an early stage and can advise our clients to fix those issues to avoid any refusal. 

We also provide a document checking service at a fixed fee of £399 and can review the application, this will allow minimising the risk of refusal.
