When a company says: "All applicants must be based in the UK.", what does it mean? In which aspects should we be based on the UK?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

I believe it means that all applicants should be residents of UK.
You could easily find your answer in a dictionary. Here's what you'd find if you looked up base in Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English for example:
[transitive usually passive]to have your main place of work, business etc in a particular place:
The paper had intended to base itself in London.
be based in something
The new organization will be based in Dallas.

P.S. Another good thing to remember all the time, with all languages is to type all words fully with correct spelling. It's never appropriate to say "q" instead of "question".
