Hi all,

I'm in the same situation now. Received interview notification from UKVI yesterday. I did totally miss to file my SA from 2012 and did them all just a week before applying for ILR. But, I haven't amended my tax and have paid tax for whatever earnings I claimed for me extension. In fact, I had overpaid and got a refund few months ago. So, I am really unable to guess what it could be that has caused the need for an interview.

I did show earnings as ltd company director and PAYE. I wonder if that has landed me in the trouble!
I do have some proof of the work I did for my client and do have the necessary qualification.

My quick question is - if in case my ILR gets refused, will I be able to get Tier 2 given my employer agrees? Just worried if the ILR refusal will cause Tier 2 refusal too.

Hi Kavya

Is your sa updated in hmrc records? . Did u show dividends + paye for your ilr application or hsmp ext?
I guess you can switch to tier 2 if anything goes wrong. tbh if u paid all taxes and if there is no tax liability even if u didnt submit sa you can fight ur case. If you had amendments then it would have been worse.its shocking they sent u this letter now when its almost 6 months since you posted your application.

Hi Jackk,

Thanks for the link, I will read it in a bit.

Yes, I showed both PAYE + dividends for both extn and ILR.
Yes! my HMRC records are amended and I did check it few months ago. Now that I've received this, I am going to call HMRC tomo and check again.

Like you have mentioned I am hanging on the hopes that I didn't have any tax amendments. I am now trying to gather evidences of my meeting with my client in the past. I have the signed off agreements & work sign off with me. But, I wonder if they will ask my work itself, which I don't have now (which is a software product) Also, I don't any emails from my client :( this is what I'm worried about now!

Yes, it's absolutely shocking to me that I have got interview request because I was so confident on my application because all my taxes are up to date.

Please go thru older posts on here about what questions they've asked and probably u might find some answers that you can relate to your situation.Communication could be of any sort. Depends on the work u've done.
when is the interview?
