Let me share our recent success story.
Our recent client, a bonafide entrepreneur, established a very successful trading company with an impressive turnover of £3m per annum. She genuinely invested £200k in the UK business. She was here with her spouse and 2 children. She was in need of her passport urgently due to her travel plan overseas.
She previously hired an another solicitor firm. Due to poor Immigration advice, her application for Tier 1 entrepreneur extension was refused, post visa expiry. Then after, she instructed us under extreme stress, worrying if she had to leave the UK.
We at A Y & J Solicitors swiftly took over her case. We advised her on a very complex specified evidential requirement. We liaised with her Accountant on her behalf to collate relevant information/document at short notice. We submitted her out of time immigration application with strongly prepared legal representation with all specified evidence.
Our client was granted Tier 1 entrepreneur extension within 8 weeks with her full family.
This was an outstanding result for our client.
Complicating factors to consider for this case were:
Number 1: Our client had many temporary, casual workers. Therefore the job creation calculation was most complicated
Number 2: Specified evidential requirement while evidencing investment and genuineness of the trading activity
We managed to conquer all above challenges successfully for our client. This was only possible due to our:
Number 1: Strong understanding of the Tier 1 entrepreneur visa application process,
Number 2: In-house team with strong UK business acumen
Number 3: A strong legal team to assist our client.
We have had success with assisting and securing Tier 1 entrepreneur extension for many our clients.

I would like to say a huge thank you to A Y & J Solicitors especially to Diana and Yash.

He thoroughly inquired about my case history and within no time came up with a solution to aid me with my entry clearance. He was as honest and as sincere as can be. I was so pleased with his quick response and assurance that I decided to appoint A Y & J Solicitors as my legal advisors. Diana spent hours on end going through my application making sure everything was perfect, and that not a single detail was left out. She is a perfectionist. Many a times she would stay back after her normal working hours just to go through everything with me in detail making sure we had everything in place for my application. I applied and got a successful outcome. I am now back in the UK and would highly recommend A Y & J Solicitors for all immigration matters including tier 1 entrepreneur visas
