my uncle and aunty are the only shareholders of the company
i just work for the company as an employer
ok so reapply yes??
You work for your uncle as an employee which I understand. Are you on a payroll and does he have more employees?

The reason for refusal is that HO looks at employment with a related party to be really suspicious. You need to do everything in your power to clear these doubts or else they will refuse again.

If your uncle is running a company you can ask him to provide you his company accounts. You can get a confirmation written by his qualified accountant stating you are a genuine employee and that they run the payroll services for your uncle acting as his accountants and tax advisors.

The accountant can also verify that you are not a shareholder or a director in the company and have been working as an employee since which ever year.

Is mandatory reconsidersation and reconsideration two separate things?

Government website states that if you have a right to appeal then you cant request reconsideration.

And I thought every spouse visa application which is refused can be appealed :idea:

When you can make a reconsideration request
''You can make a reconsideration request if you believe immigration rules or policies weren’t followed correctly when the decision was made.

You must be in the UK to make the request.''

it says it on the link if you click it. i dont think this link applies to you as your missus is in Pakistan
