What are Entrepreneur Visa Extensions?

An entrepreneur extension occurs, in most cases, 3 years after the initial Entrepreneur Application has been made and granted.

Essentially an extension application is when an applicant holding an entrepreneur visa must show that he has fulfilled all the requirements required of him and has collated the correct documents to show this. He then obtains a further 2 years if successful on the entrepreneur visa.

What do I need to prove?

Entrepreneur extension applications require 4 main criteria to be proven, with an additional 5th criteria to be proven if the applicant wants accelerated settlement.

We set out a summary of the criteria now. Please note that the evidence required to prove that these criteria have been proven can be complex and legal advice or representation is recommended.

1.Has the 200,000 been invested into a new or existing company?

2.Has the new or existing company taken on the equivalent of 2 additional staff?

3.Has the entrepreneur registered as a director within 6 months of obtaining the visa?

4.Is the entrepreneur still registered as a director of any UK company currently?

These are the 4 requirements for an extension of entrepreneur status for another 2 years to make a total of 5 years and an application for permanent residency, also known as Indefinite Leave to Remain.

What if I want Accelerated Settlement?

In order to apply for ‘accelerated settlement’ – ie Indefinite Leave immediately, the applicant should also prove a 5th optional criteria:

5. Has the entrepreneur’s company or companies reached a turnover of 5 million pounds over the 3 years or has he employed 10 persons across the 3 years.

Westkin have experience in these applications, which although seem simple can be complex due to the mandatory nature of the documents which must be shown to prove the application.

We undertake entrepreneur extension applications for 2,000 plus VAT, which reductions available for those who have much of the documents required already. Once we sign off on an application being ready, the work is undertaken on a no win no fee basis.

We charge 200 plus VAT for a document checking service if the full legal service is not required.

We look forward to hearing from you.
