Choi Eng Ooi - Malaysia
They already wrote my sisters business plan and I wanted to use the same company.
Choi Eng, 46, ran her family fresh foods business in Malaysia for 20 years before deciding she wanted to move to the UK with her husband and 2 children.
Whilst she had the expertise to run a successful venture, she had no higher education and her English wasn't proficient. With our help she received her visa and is now in process of establishing her company in the UK.Get your visa .
The sole reps.
Upon meeting Choi Eng, it was clear that Starting she understood the micro workings of a business and understood the UK business climate well.
Starting an import business in the UK from scratch is not easy. There are a lot of legal, tax and insurance regulations you must adhere to and we had to make sure this was conveyed in the business plan.
The business Plan.
One of the main factors the home office reviews is whether the sole rep is professionally skilled in the industry that they are applying to start a business in. This is where the business plan needs to reflect their work experience and qualifications. This was difficult here because Choi needed to prove that despite her lack of formal education, she had the know-how to successfully run a business. We helped her understand the UK business climate, helping her ensure that with high labour and transportation costs, her business would still be profitable.
Choi Eng already successfully ran a business back in Malaysia, so was incredibly knowledgeable about the workings of a food supply company. She worked collaboratively with our business plan team to compile a strong business plan, that would not only ensure her visa was accepted, but act as a road map for her business' growth over the next 5 years.
