My parents are from a non EU commowealth country and are applying

Resolved Question:

My parents are from a non EU commowealth country and are applying for the Entrepreneur Tier 1 visa. They plan to buy an education franchise once visa is granted and employ me (I am a British citizen) to teach in the business as I have the necessary teaching qualifications . Will they be penalised when they apply for an extension after the 3 year visa is up as they will have to proof employment of 2 full time British citizens and one of the employees happens to be their daughter?

Thanks for your question.


Will you be the only employee or will at least one other be also employed?


Many thanks,

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

There will be one other person employed at some point (perhaps for 6 months) in the duration of the 3 years depending on the profits the business is bringing in.

From my understanding when reading the notes, employing one employee fulltime(30 hour week) for 24 months is equivalent to employing 2 employees.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
By the way my question was the fact that I am next of kin and whether this will penalise when we decide to apply for an extension. You have not answered my first question.
Expert:  INC replied 6 years ago.



No they will not be penalised for employing their daughter. Provided you have the relevant qualifications, it does not matter.
