Services for High-Net-Worth Individuals

Several paths are available for individuals who wish to set up a business or invest funds in the UK.
We have a wide range of experience in advising on historic entrepreneur applications where clients
may now be ready to extend or apply for indefinite leave to remain and can assist individuals who
wish to apply for investor, start-up or innovator visas.

We work closely with other advisors including accountants and wealth managers to ensure our clients receive the guidance and support needed to adhere to the requirements of their visa category.

Investor Visa (Tier 1)

Individuals who have at least £2 million in investment funds are able to apply for an Investor visa. The funds will need to remain invested in acceptable investments for the full duration of the visa until the applicant is able to obtain indefinite leave to remain if required.

There are accelerated routes for settlement based on the total investment, with the possibility to settle in the UK after five years for £2 million, after three years for £5 million and after two years for £10 million.

Innovator Visa

The Innovator Visa assists experienced entrepreneurs to establish new businesses in the UK. Applicants are required to have access to £50,000 for business investment and will need to have their business endorsed by an appropriate body.

Multiple applicants can form a team and apply for endorsement to be co-directors of the same company. But each applicant still needs to be able to demonstrate that they have £50,000 to invest. Applicants are required to present a detailed business plan to the endorsing body, together with any other documentation which is requested to prove that the visa requirements are satisfied:

  • Innovation: The applicant must have an innovative and valid business plan, must create a competitive advantage, satisfying all the market needs.
  • Viability: The applicant must have an innovative and valid business plan, must create a competitive advantage, satisfying all the market needs.
  • Scalability: Your business plan presents a structured plan and potential for employment production and growth within national and international markets.

Start-up Visa

The new Start-up visa route opened to new applicants at the end of March 2019 and is a successor of Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa. If you are looking to establish a new business in the UK, our team are specialists in assisting clients through the application process.

This new category of visa aims to appeal to entrepreneurs wanting to start a business in the UK but importantly it does not require financial investment, nor even a university degree. The business must be viable, scalable and an innovative business idea. The business idea and plan also has to be endorsed by a Home Office approved endorsing body.

The Start-up visa is granted for a maximum of 2 years and cannot be extended. After 24 months, you must demonstrate enough progress to meet the requirements of the UK Innovator Visa; if not, you can apply for the UK Innovator Visa with any other idea that meets the requirements.

Sharing the Love

Our doors are always open for you, come at any time and have a cup of tea with us!

  • I’ve been dealing with Rosie for a few months now, after withdrawing from a property we continued to use her for the purchase of our new one. Rosie’s changed my perception of solicitors as she always acted in my best interests, always responds very promptly to any questions (regardless of how silly). I will certainly be recommending Rosie to friends and family. I’m sure we will have dealings in the future. Value for money is seconded to none. 
    Thanks again

  • We recently used DV Solicitors for the purchase of a commercial property. Mr Nasar Ali was our solicitor. It isn’t easy with any commercial mortgage especially Lloyds but as Mr Ali’s experience showed he was excellent from start to finish. Always keeping us up to date with what was happening. Probably have about 30+ emails from him lol. Great guy, excellent service, very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use and definitely recommend. 👍

  • We have used Deo Volente for the first time rewriting our wills and making changes to property ownership. Ms Farida Ahmed talked us through the process by telephone in a friendly and helpful manner. Based on our experience I would use their service again and would recommend them.
