Tier 1 Visa Business Plans


The Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa is the visa those wanting to actively start or invest in a business in the UK.

To qualify for a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa, you must demonstrate you have access to at least £50,000 in 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.

However, having money isn't enough. The Home Office requires applicants to pass the "genuine entrepreneur test" and demonstrate that not only have they researched the market, but can evidence that their new business is a viable one.

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.


Business Plan Writing Service For A Tier 1 Entrepreneur-Visa


I have been a professional business plan writer for over 10 years, and have worked with many hundreds of business owners, from start-ups to large corporations. As such I offer a uniquely bespoke business plan writing service.

I am able to write business plans which will addresses Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa requirements i.e. they are not 'off the shelf' templates but bespoke, comprehensive and written in plan English to demonstrate that you are a credible business owner.

In addition, I also work with a number of Immigration specialists both here in the UK and internationally and therefore have written many Tier 1 visa business plans.

For example, you must also evidence in a business plan that 2 new jobs will be created. Many business plans I see (usually created from standard online templates) do not mention these 2 jobs and yet Tier 1 visa applicants are often asked how they will find employees, and what their roles will be. Again, this will all be included in the business plan.

Unlike many business plan writers, I don't just write business plans; I also run several businesses. So understand exactly what needs to be included in your plan to make it a success.

What's included in the Tier 1 Business Plan


Your business plan will include the following:

  • Executive Summary
  • Financial Summary
  • Business History & Objectives
  • Directors' Background
  • Service/Product Description
  • Market Research
  • Competitor Analysis
  • SWOT Analysis
  • Sales & Marketing Strategy
  • Operations
  • Premises
  • Legal Requirements
  • Management & Staff
  • Financial Analysis
  • 2 or 3-year Financial Forecasts (e.g. Cash Flow Forecast and P&L Account)
  • Relevant Appendices




I provide a professional and completely bespoke Tier 1 visa business plan writing service.

My fees depend on a number of factors, including the amount of information you already have available, turn around time (which is usually 3 weeks) as well as the complexity of your business. Fees start from £1,600 (far more competitive than many other providers).

I ask for 50% deposit before I begin work with the remaining 50% to be paid before I send you the final business plan. Please ask for further details.

Please note: I do not send sample plans. For over 10 years I have always maintained the highest level of confidentiality for my clients and as such I never share my client's business plans. For assurance and client feedback please visit my results page.
