Sorry for not being clear,
All I want to know is , in the current situation we need to create two full time jobs or one for extension
I found the below statement on gov.uk home office website
“ If you are on a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa and your business has been disrupted
You no longer need to employ at least 2 people for 12 consecutive months each. The 12 month period you are required to employ someone for can be made up of multiple employees across different months.
Time when your employees were furloughed will not count towards the 12 month period.
If have not been able to employ staff for 12 months in total by the time your visa expires, you will be allowed to temporarily extend your stay to give you time to meet the requirement.“

Dear Mods and Experts
Hope you all doing well and safe,
I got my Tier 1 entrepreneur visa in August 2019 and entred uk in September 2019,
Since it’s my existing business , I have not hired any staff yet
Could you please advice If the below applied to me or I still need to employ 2 full time staff for the period of one year or 10 full time staff for 30 hours per week for extensions/
Unfortunately that is not very clear from the statement. It is better for this to percolate into actual guideline documents, which is not possibly urgent as this has no immediate impact.
Going from previous history, guidelines for accelerated ILR are unlikely to be relaxed. The relaxations would be more for the normal 5 year route. So, if you want to plan, you need to proceed on that basis.
