The UK is regarded as one of the major financial and educational centres in the world although access is carefully controlled by complicated domestic and EU legislation.
Gowling WLG offers an expert and efficient UK immigration and nationality law service for high net worth clients and their families. In particular, we can advise on investor, entrepreneur and student visas, covering initial applications, renewals, permanent residency and British citizenship.
Individuals and families considering relocating to the UK will also require UK tax advice and we are able to combine this with our immigration advice to provide a fully integrated service.
The UK Tier 1 (Investor) Visa route offers high net worth individuals and their families the opportunity to apply to reside in the UK by making a substantial investment of at least £2 million in the UK. The investment must be made in UK Government Bonds or shares/bonds in active and trading UK companies. Successful applicants are permitted to live, work or study in the UK. They may also later qualify for permanent residency in the UK and British Citizenship.
Gowling WLG has an extensive experience and a proven track record in advising clients on all aspects of the Tier 1 (Investor) Visa route preparing and submitting initial, extension and permanent residency applications. In addition to advising on how to relocate to the UK efficiently from an immigration perspective, we can also advise on the UK tax implications involved in such a move together with any associated pre-residency tax planning.
