Default Can a single person company sponsor Tier-2 General visa to himself?

Hi All, I'm planning to move to UK with my wife on a ICT Tier-2 dependent Visa.

I have few queries:
My visa will have 1 year validity so I just wanted to know, if I can setup a small single person company and sponsor myself for a Tier-2 Visa?

Also I'll be glad to know any such companies who can sponsor my Tier-2 General visa( IT Software Development companies)?

Hope to hear some answers soon.
Cheers!!!

I've moved it for you - I completely missed that you wrote UK!

No, you can't sponsor yourself for a Tier 2. But maybe look into the representative of an overseas business visa, or a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa

Thank you clever-octopus, really appreciate it.

It'll be very helpful if you can elaborate how and share some more inputs.

Cheers!

It's an easy Google search... Tier 1 Entrepreneur is probably more appropriate to your circumstances but will require £200,000 in investment capital.
