A Guide To Writing A Business Plan As A Tier 1 Applicant

A business plan is compulsory when applying for a Tier 1 visa, this will be a vital document when making your application. The main purpose of your business plan is to communicate how successful and attainable your business idea is to the Home Office. We have created a short guide on putting together a successful business plan for your Tier 1  application.

1: Executive Summary

An executive summary should be at the beginning of your business plan, this should provide a snapshot of what your business plan contains. For example; you could use your executive summary to speak about key points, focus on your unique selling point and relevant data related to your business.

This section should focus on any information about the company, the industry, the present outlook and future. If you are opening a franchise or an existing organisation; try to speak about the history, profits and revenue and any other relevant information.
