Sole Representative

If you are considering establishing a UK branch or subsidiary of your overseas headquartered firm, you may not know that it is possible to transfer one of your trusted managers to establish this UK start up for you.

The good news is that there is a route enabling you to accomplish this, which does not require a sponsor licence application. This is often a reasonably quick solution in the short-term, to enable the business to get off the ground before considering whether you wish to go down the sponsor licence application route.

Our experienced immigration team at Kingsley Napley has been providing advice to businesses and individuals for over 20 years and many of our advisers have been practicing immigration law for much longer.

We can assist with all stages of the transfer to the UK, from the initial planning of the transfer to the UK by your sole representative, to preparing the necessary supporting documentation to support the application and ultimately assisting with the filing of the visa application abroad.

As this will be a start-up business in the UK, you can also benefit from additional advice from our corporate team on the registration of the new UK legal entity with Companies House in the UK and our employment team for the drafting of a suitable assignment agreement and UK employment contract. You may also require assistance with sourcing suitable premises and again, our Real Estate team are well placed to assist you with this. In short we are able to provide you with the whole suite of legal services in one place, to ensure the smooth transfer of your sole representative to the UK.
