Few questions about application!

Post by ilovethebeatles » Mon Oct 28, 2019 11:40 pm

Hi all,

I am applying for BC next month and after studying the guidance, I have few questions hope you can help clear. I am on 5 year route (Tier 2 General) + 1 year ILR

1. Employment history: do I have to list volunteer/non paid work such as a trustee for a charity organization or governor at a primary school?
2. I assume I don't have to list employments before entering to work in the UK?
3. Documents needed: Passports, BRP (ILR), LIUK, UK Degree - is it all?
4. Reference: Is a school governor (at the primary school where 2 of my children currently attend and my oldest child attended) good to be a referee for my children?
5. Same as 4, but my oldest child is now at secondary school while the referee is at primary school but their child is also studying with my child at new school (same year but not same class) and we meet from time to time - is this governor still good to act as a referee for my oldest child? We have known each other for more than 5 years as the governor's children are same age and studying same school with my children.

Thank you very much!

4. School gov is a voluntary position. Depends on real job.

Hi Aman,

Thank you for reply. Regarding 1, I came to the UK 6 years ago, do you mean I have to list also employments before my entry to the UK?

Regarding 3, if the governor is not suitable, how do you think using my work colleagues? They know my children very well but from reading the guidance it seems it requires someone professional relating to my children' activities. If it is in that sense then the only way is to ask their teachers and I am not sure if they are willing.

Regard.

1. Only concerned with paid work within Uk. For example if you’ve been here 8 years then 8yrs history
2.Teacher will do or nurse.

Hi Aman,

Thank you for your reply. I am intending to ask a teacher at my children' primary school who knows well about my children to help. Is the teacher at former primary school suitable for my oldest child if my child is now at Year 8 secondary school? I am just thinking using one person for all children for not having to ask one more person to help.

Best regards.

Hi Aman,

Thank you for your answer. Another question that has been asked but I am not really sure: “Have you made any previous UK immigration applications in the UK or abroad”?

I came to the UK on student visas and then left the country for 7 years and came back 6 years ago on Tier 2. Does the question ask to include also student visas or just the most recent 6 years (qualifying period)?

Regards.

The questions asks for ANY applications and you need to post all of them. It is not asking about only the qualifying period, but all applications.

Thank you CR001. Might be a silly question but just arisen in my mind: does it include also visitor visas (6 month each) I made during my 7 year gap?

I meant the visas were for 6 months but I actually visited only few days each time.

No. Tourist visas aren’t immigration applications.

Hello,

I have not started the online application yet but looking at the paper version under "Details of your employment" section, can anyone let me know if the question on Tax reference number is for me (the applicant) or for my employer?

Regards.

Regards.
If you are currently employed it's the PAYE reference number which should be on your payslip and/or P60. Only the current reference number is required.

Thank you alterhase58! I have checked my payslip and my P60 then I find that while the "Tax code" on payslip is consistent, the "final tax code" on P60 is different from that and also different for different years. Which one should I look for pls?

it is NOT the tax code. It is the Employer Tax Office Reference number.

I also see that on the P60, there is "Employer PAYE reference" which is consistent over years but does not exist on payslip. On payslip, there is "Employee Number" which is consistent in all payslip.

Hello,

I have a question about when the referee form can be printed out. Can it be printed out for signature before the application be submitted and paid? My concern is one of my referees has a travel plan after the day I am eligible.

Many thanks!

It’ll be fine. My referees also dated/signed before I was eligible.
If they hadn’t sent me the forms back I would not have used them as my referees..
imagine if I submitted the application with their details and they vanished or delayed sending the forms back..
