To be a sole representative you must be employed by the parent company in a senior job role and must have the authority to take operational decisions once in the UK or Isle of Man. A sole representative cannot be an agent (self-employed), a sales representative, buyer or a secretary/personal assistant accompanying a sole representative. To be eligible as a sole representative you cannot be a majority shareholder of the company, only those with less than a 50% shareholding will be considered.
Using the experience and support of Canfields Law you can set up a genuine active trading company that reflects the skills of the non-EEA nationals seeking residence and perhaps citizenship in the United Kingdom. We have established close connections on the Isle of Man which we use to ensure the best chance of a successful application and the right business support thereafter.
Canfields Law will incorporate and help establish a branch of the oversea business in the UK or Isle of Man. To meet the requirements of the visa we will ensure that the branch exists as a legal entity and has a bank account and premises. We will help to employ staff and use our business connections wherever possible to help establish the new branch. The applicant will need the relevant qualifications, skills and experience required and must play an active role as a key member of company. Complying with the requirements will ensure that after just five years the applicant will be on track for Indefinite Leave to Remain.

I don't have words… how much time and effort you put into my case
What is too often forgotten is that getting your visa is not the end of the matter.
There is a lot of extra help you may need in getting settled. Very few immigration advisors will offer these services…
