Good morning, I am Lawyer Ak and I will be assisting you today.

Expert:  LawyerAk replied 17 days ago.

Unfortunately, you cannot make a limited company for yourself on the skilled work visa. You can work a  second job as employed persons.

Why so?

I will send you the guidance but on  a skilled work visa it only allows you to have a second job.

Taking on additional work

You can do additional paid work on this visa as long as you’re still doing the job you’re being sponsored for. You can also do unpaid voluntary work.

You can work up to 20 hours a week in a job that’s either:

in the same occupation code and at the same level as your main job

in a shortage occupation
