How should a UK Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Visa applicant manage business risk prior to receiving Indefinite Leave to Remain?

I am planning my business model and trying to spot risks I can avoid so that, at all costs, my business remains viable and meets all requirements to receive the Indefinite Leave to Remain.

    The answer to this question depends on several factors. The most obvious one is being familiar with all of the requirements for an extension of stay of meeting the required rules relating to what constitutes an eligible business investment, abiding by what you said you would do in your initial business plan, job creation requirements, the financial health of the business and having good workplace practices.

    You need to ensure that your business employs two people, that you remain a Director and maintain the investment, as well as that you pass the genuine entrepreneur test. There is no requirement that your business is successful, although, of course, that helps.
