Hi

Further to your question you can be a shareholder however I think you cannot have more than 10% share in the company. I will double check the rules and revert back to you.

Good morning, further to our query yesterday, Mr Elalfy will be able to take a call this morning regarding the Tier 2 General visa. However, he is a Consultant working in a hospital clinic this morning and so may miss your call, therefore if you do call him, can you please leave a contact number for him to return your call.

Hi

I have spoken to him.

Kind Regards
