I want to attend 5 days of training in the UK, I have two accounts, in one of my accounts (savings) I transferred a mortgage loan deposit by my employer into my salary account. I intend to use the money for personal development and company setup rather than property. Do you envisage me having any visa challenge with this?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

You’ll have to prove the source of the money when submitting your bank statements Should I submit bank statements when applying for a UK Visa? What do they say about me? If the loan document from your employer says its purpose was for a property purchase then yes, IMHO it will be a problem and will very likely be viewed as a type of funds parking strategy UK Visa Refusal: Provenance of funds/parking

It would be much better from a visa application point of view to be able to demonstrate that you can afford the trip without this money (from salary and savings). This question UK Visa Rejection - Second Time is an example of how closely UKVI can examine an applicant’s financial position.

    My employer would consider use of a mortgage or car loan for something else as gross misconduct. – Michael Harvey Feb 27 at 19:53
