After successfully running and investing in several high-tech businesses in the US for nearly 20 years, our client approached us as he wished to relocate to the UK and had already identified a number of UK companies that he wished to invest in. He saw the UK as an ideal location to be based in, as it was ideally suited for him, given that he had business interests in the US and the Middle East.
Our client founded several businesses, ranging from manufacturing computer parts to IT services and sophisticated digital marketing businesses. He developed the businesses and was able to sell them at a very high value.
He had researched the Tier 1 Investor visa himself; however, this had produced conflicting information regarding the visa process and the requirements. During his research, he came across our website, which he found very helpful, and he decided to contact us in relation to the Tier 1 Investor visa.
During our initial consultation, we reviewed his profile and some of the documents he provided to us. He informed us of where his funds originated from and where they were currently held. He provided us with some brief information on the companies he had identified for investment. We required further time to conduct some research into the information provided and agreed a follow-up call.
Following our research, we advised him of the companies which could and could not qualify for investment, which he was very grateful for. We then provided him with a comprehensive list of the documents needed and clarified for him his doubts and misconceptions. After reviewing the information provided, our client gained confidence in applying for the Investor visa and investing in the UK.
We guided our client in all aspects of this visa application and submitted an application on his behalf.
Our client was granted his visa within three weeks of the submission of his application and he is now in the UK. Our client, on entry required further financial advice and we were able to put him in touch with advisors from different industries.
