An interesting option for tax optimisation is Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). Its is not subject to taxation itself, but rather the partners are, in proportion to their shares. If LLP parners are not resident in UK and income is obtained from the sources outside of UK, LLP will not have any tax obligations.
Advantages of UK are:
- Respectable jurisdiction
- No tax obligations in UK (if the partners are non-resident and do not carry out any operations)
- Limited liability of the partners
- Flexibility. Partners regulate relations themselves.
Below are key areas we can help you with. Contact is if you have specific questions or if you need something that is not covered here and we will find the solution for you. This is a points based system and we will help you fill out the forms so that you score the maximum points.
Entrepreneurs, Investors & Exceptional Talent (Tier 1)
Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) is for non-EU migrants who want to invest in the UK by setting up or taking over, and being actively involved in the running of, a business or businesses here. If you are already in the UK in a different immigration category, you may be able to 'switch' into Tier 1 (Entrepreneur).
The Tier 1 (Investor) category is for high-net-worth individuals who want to make a substantial financial investment of £1,000,000 in the UK. You do not need a job offer to apply in this category. Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) is for people who are internationally recognised as world leaders or potential world-leading talent in the fields of science and the arts, and who wish to work in the UK.
Student visa (Tier 4)
All Tier 4 students inside or outside the UK will require a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) which is applied for by the College/University and issued by the UKBA.
Confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is awarded for a course at an acceptable level. You will need to prove you are sufficiently educated to undertake the course and that you meet the English language requirements for that course.
Resident Labour Market Test (Tier 2)
You must complete a Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT) before sponsoring a migrant unless the job is listed on the UKBA Shortage Occupation List (SOL), the migrant is an existing employee, or in a switching immigration category.
Temporary Worker (Tier 5)
There are several categories of temporary workers: the creative and sporting worker category; charity workers, religious workers; youth mobility scheme; government authorised exchange; international agreements.
To come to the UK as an overseas parent company's sole representative you must be a senior employee (but not a majority shareholder in the company) who intends to establish a commercial presence for the company in the UK. This may be a registered branch or a wholly owned subsidiary concerned with the same type of business activity as the parent company.
The company must have no branch, subsidiary or other representative in the UK. If the company has a legal entity in the UK but this does not employ staff or transact business you may still be able to come here as its sole representative. You must also be able to demonstrate your English language ability.
Regardless of what immigration category you choose we will advise you on possible options and probabilities of success; prepare your application with the recommended supporting evidence; prepare witness statements, statutory declarations, affidavits; prepare a cover letter in support of the application, highlighting how the requirements are met by referring in detail to policy and case law; prepare bundles for appeal hearings; represent you at appeal hearings; prepare legal submissions; submit appeals to the First Tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal; draft and serve a Pre-Action Protocol prior to Judicial Review.
