An important part of making a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa application is a high-quality business plan. According to recent figures, 1/3 of all Entrepreneur Visa refusals are due to a poor business plan. Writing a business plan properly may be the deciding factor in whether you can come to the UK as an entrepreneur or not.

To apply for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, you will need a business plan which demonstrates how your business benefits the British economy. You need to know your business plan inside-out as this will be scrutinized in your Entrepreneur Visa interview.

FAQs

What is a business plan?

A business plan is vital to your Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa application. It is a research document which describes your:

  • business model
  • financial forecasts
  • professional objectives
  • business structure

This document is often written and collated by industry experts but, since you will be questioned on it during your interview, you must know it intimately.

A good business plan may be the difference between an accepted and a rejected Tier 1 application. It will show that you have carefully researched your market and that you have genuine intentions as a UK businessperson.

What needs to be included in the Tier 1 Entrepreneur business plan?

Your business plan should provide details on every area of your business.

This will include:

  • An executive summary of the business;
  • A business overview;
  • Operations plans (including the physical setup of your business);
  • Market analysis;
  • A description of what you will be selling (goods or services);
  • Your sales and marketing plans;
  • Analysis of your competitors (similar companies/general UK market);
  • Information on all the roles involved in the business;
  • Your financial plan and projections.
