Even though i have answered 'Director' and 'in charge of the day to day running of the business', i cannot see why more information would be needed? (with all respect).
The reason i say this, according to the document 'Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) of the points bases system - policy guidance' published by the Home Office UK Border Agency Version 08/2012 it states as a condition of stay
'no employment other than working for the business or businesses that you have established, joined or taken over'
- according to this the individual will be in no employment what so ever, he will be a director. Satisfying this point, with substantial proof too.
The next point is from the same document where it states:
'In an occupation skilled to graduate level Other than the work necessary to administer the business, your main business activity must be working at graduate level. We will not take into account the tasks involved with the running of the business for this assessment. For example • If the business is software sales and your main activity is developing software, you may qualify for points; • If the business is a taxi firm, the main occupation is driving a taxi and you will not score points even though you manage the business. Your main activity is providing a taxi service which is not skilled to graduate level. Guidance on what is a graduate level occupation (also called level 4 and above of the National Qualifications Framework) is available in the codes of practice which are available on our website:'
-His 'Main Business', the business which he applied for his Visa on is developing software, which is point scoring.
As a second, unrelated business, his activity will be under NVQ level 4, meaning no points can be achieved, however as it is not his 'Main Business', he does not need points and does not want them.
If i read this correctly am i then right in saying according to the information above there is nothing stopping the individual being a Director and working within this own second business under NFQ level 4?
