In our latest blog we talked about opening a branch in the United Kingdom through UK sole representative visa. As stated, some of the major benefits of having a Representative of an Overseas Visa Business Plan include:
* You do not have to show a specified amount of investment;
* You do not have to employ two new members of staff as part of the visa extension requirement; and
* UK sole representative visa program may lead to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and even a British Passport.
Remember that UK sole representative visa applicants should also show that the subsidiary or branch office has not been launched exclusively for the reason of facilitating the entry and stay of the UK sole representative visa applicant.
If you are applying for a UK sole representative visa, you must provide a detailed business plan that meets the requirements. One of the most important documents needed when applying for a sole representative visa is a comprehensive business plan.
The UK sole representative visa business plan is so critical because it documents that the subsidiary or branch you wish to set up or for which you will become a senior executive is sustainable. It supports the fact that the UK sole representative visa applicant will be able to stimulate the UK economy.
The UK sole representative visa business plan that is made a part of the sole representative visa application must demonstrate that the applicant has the requisite skills, talent, background, knowledge, and resources to successfully start and grow a subsidiary or branch that provides real products and services. In short, it must be as professional as you intend for the business to be. Make no mistake; it must represent the UK sole representative visa applicant.

Each UK sole representative visa business plan is unique and there are no templates that will guarantee your approval. The UK sole representative visa business plan will more than likely be 15-20 pages in length and include informative charts, tables, images and graphs that will aid in giving the reader a better understanding of the business. At a minimum, the document must include:
