The Sole Representative of an Overseas Business sounds like a lonely job, especially in the UK’s current fast paced changing political environment and Brexit uncertainties. However, most economists say expansion is the key to success even in times of economic uncertainty.
If you are applying to the Home Office for a Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visa, it is vital that you and your overseas employer fully understand the Sole Representative visa rules and requirements.
If you are not a London immigration solicitor, you may be forgiven for thinking that the phrase “the centre of operations” is something to do with surgery or even where some secret UK government department is based. Neither is right. Understanding and complying with the Home Office definition of “the centre of operations” is vitally important if you are applying for a Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visa.

After a very hectic couple of days at the London Business Show 2018 we are now back at the offices of OTS Solicitors looking back on a very busy few days. We never realised that talking business could be such fun but with OTS Solicitors attending, exhibiting and speaking at the UK’s biggest business show with its 25,000 visitors we all thoroughly enjoyed the event. We will be booking our tickets and stand for the London Business Show 2019.

Obtaining a sole representative visa can be a big step for a company looking to establish a branch or subsidiary in the UK – as many of the best Immigration solicitors in London have witnessed first-hand, a sole representative visa refusal can seriously hamper a business’s plans for expansion and growth, so it’s vital to get your sole representative visa application right.

OTS Solicitors is proud to announce it has been ranked in the Legal 500.
It is almost unprecedented that a firm established only two and half years ago has made it into this prestigious publication.
For foreign businesses looking to launch in the UK market, the Representative of an Overseas Business Visa offers a vehicle to enable a non-EEA national to work in the country.
Expanding into a foreign country is risky for any business; having an experienced employee who understands the UK market and has contacts with suppliers and customers goes a long way to mitigating the associated risks.
