One of the most important factors when applying for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa is a quality business plan.

According to the Home Office, writing a business plan well could mean the difference between your visa being granted or rejected – a poorly-constructed business plan makes up for 1/3 of all Entrepreneur Visa rejections.

As part of your Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa application process, you will be expected to present a business plan to the Home Office which shows your business would be successful in the UK and would ultimately benefit the UK’s economy. In your Entrepreneur Visa interview, you need to discuss your business plan in detail.

When writing a business plan, you should bear this in mind and make sure that you know every detail of your business plan from start to finish. This will include knowing your forecasts and projections, the employees you will hire and the roles they will fill.

Your Tier 1 Entrepreneur business plan should be produced with the advice of experts but you will need to know every detail of it before your interview. With IAS, your lawyer can advise you on the best options for writing a business plan and help you prepare for your meeting with the Home Office.
