Thanks for your patience.

Whilst I do not think that you would be doing anything illegal in moving to Ireland on your new visa and maintaining your company in the UK, it is likely that it will cause practical problems in the future.

This is because you may face awkward questions from the UKBA if you are constantly coming and going from Ireland to the UK on the basis of your Tier 1 visa. If they see that you are ultimately not based in the UK anymore then they may ask you about the situation and potentially refuse entry eventually.

However, in theory I don’t really think that there is anything preventing you being the sole shareholder of a company in the UK if you most to Ireland.
