The Sole Representative immigration category allows an individual ( USUALLY A SENIOR MANAGER / DIRECTOR ) to come to the UK to set up a UK branch or subsidiary on behalf of an overseas company, where the overseas company does not already have a representative in the UK. The company must continue to have its principal place of business outside the UK. Applicants seeking to enter the UK in this capacity must first obtain entry clearance from a British diplomatic post overseas before traveling to the UK.
The individual who will represent the company in the UK as the Overseas Sole Representative must be someone who is an existing senior employee of the overseas company. The individual cannot be a majority shareholder in the overseas company, meaning he/she must be a minority shareholder with a maximum share percentage of 49%. The individual must also be senior enough to have full authority to take operational decisions in respect of the UK operation without referral to the parent business.
