Do You Require a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa Business Plan?

A Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa Business Plan is entrepreneurs wanting to actively start or invest in a business in the UK. There are a number of strict criteria that need to be fulfilled when making your application, not least of which is that you will need a comprehensive and robust business plan. So what is the criteria that you must fulfil?


To qualify for a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa, it is important that you can demonstrate you have access to at least £50,000 in business capital from:


  • A registered venture capital firm, seed funding competition or Government department, or
  • £200,000 of personal wealth, which can also include backing from a third party, such as a family member or unrelated sponsor


Whilst you may be able to demonstrate that you have the required funding, sadly this will not be enough. The UK Home Office states that applicants must also pass the "genuine entrepreneur test"; this means that you must demonstrate that you have not only researched your business market, but that you can also provide evidence that your new business is a viable one. Here at Your Business Plan we will help you to undertake the research as part of the business plan writing services that we provide to you.


Since the announcement of the Immigration Rule changes in 6 April 2015, a Tier 1 Visa Business Plan is now compulsory for all initial applications.
