Our client instructed us to help with his Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa application. He had previously worked with the same firm on his Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa. He now wants to switch into the Tier 1 Entrepreneur route, relying on funds already invested. Furthermore, he is a shareholder and Director of the company and has a progressive set up.

How We Helped

Our immigration solicitors needed to show evidence of the investment of the £50,000 into a business in the UK is available. Money invested will normally be considered as long as we produce suitable evidence of this with the application in line with the time limitations of previously invested funds;

We further showed that the applicant has a viable business idea presented to the decision maker for review. As the client was already running his business, this aspect of the rules was relatively easy to illustrate. We still needed a business plan despite the business being in operation.

The applicant needed to have the required level of English language. It was easy to evidence this as he had graduated from a UK institution. At least that was how he got a Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa in the first place. The Application was subject to a Genuine Entrepreneur Test; as of 31 January 2013 the Home Office introduced a subjective element into the requirements for initial application in order to filter out those applicants they felt were not obtaining the visa for genuine business activity. We ensured that we evidenced why the client business is a genuine one and the client is a genuine business person. We will discuss this further and continue to work on this requirement whilst preparing the documentation.

I found Joe very helpful and tremendous patience which is a must in this professional as there are lots of emotions always involved in each and every case.

The way they dealt with my case during COVID19 Situation is highly appreciable. I would definitely recommend Joe D. and Anna F. Anna is an amazing lady, her patience is beyond my words.

Her hard work and professionalism have no boundaries. She is the right person for all type of cases.

Thanks to Anna and Joe for all your support and guidance which helped me fulfill my dream.

I would say Reiss Edwards is lucky to have Joe D. and Anna F. Great job Reiss Edwards.

"Anna Foley was the lawyer helping my partner obtain an EEA EFM visa. She was outstanding. Handling the case with constant correspondence over a lengthy, lockdown delayed 7-month application process. Her expert advice guided us successfully through some difficult times as a result of COVID-19. Some of the best service I have received for any service ever! Often replying to emails late at night, offering to send additional correspondence to the home office and going above and beyond in handling our case! Well done and thank you Reiss Edwards and thank you Anna!!".

"Professional service. I was very impressed with the fact that my ILR application was successful 6 weeks after the submission amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I also think the portfolio put together by the team at Reiss Edwards has played a big part in the quick turnaround of my application".
