Immigration

The UK’s position as a global centre for business, as well as having one of the highest standards of living in the world, a thriving market and advantageous tax regime for you as a high earner, may understandably be attracting you to invest here.

If you have funds of over £2 million, you are also in a beneficial position as the UK Investor Visa Scheme allows you to live in the UK and establish a business with fewer entry requirements.

However, the circumstances and opportunities for you and your business are unique and the UK’s immigration laws can be a complex labyrinth to navigate. You need dedicated support and advice, focused on your particular needs and goals.

We provide you with a dedicated legal adviser who will work closely with you to determine your business goals, advise you of your rights and opportunities and effectively facilitate any application processes.

As well as helping you through all the practicalities of securing entry into the UK, your adviser also works closely with our Private Client Team to help you navigate the complexities of the UK tax regime and ensure that your immigration options take into account the best tax planning strategy for you and your business. We also have an excellent network of exclusive contacts which enables us to help you with the many other associated issues, such as the transfer of assets, setting up or diversifying your business in the UK and real estate investment.

Your immigration adviser can also look into the best method of bringing in your staff with you, helping to make the transition as seamless and stress-free as possible. If you are already located in the UK, you may also require immigration advice to enable you to secure the best international talent to grow and develop your business. Our team can guide you through the intricacies of sponsor licences, immigration visa applications for staff, employment contracts, tax and corporate structuring. Our objective is to support you with seamless advice from a unified team of selected advisers who are all experts in their respective fields.

In all cases we work hard to make the process of your relocation as successful and efficient as possible, with a bespoke approach tailored to your goals and the particular needs of your business.

Our immigration team, working closely with our exclusive contacts and other teams across the firm, have extensive experience helping clients relocate their business to the UK and advising on the many other issues associated with UK immigration.
