Hi eclairs,
A massive congratulations to you. Very good news indeed. I am also Employed and running a company. I am planning to apply by post. Would be kind enough to tell me if you had to submit self-assessment as a company director as my accountant told me that since I took salary from the company (No dividend) and I paid employee and employer's both NI and tax, I don't have to submit SA. But, there seems to be some confusions as what to do when someone is only taking salary from the company. HO is asking for SA for those who showing income from own company. I would appreciate if you could explain your situation. Many many thanks.

Update

ILR SET (O): applicant + 1 dependent Tier 1 (G)
Date of Postage: 20/01/2016
Date Received: 21/01/2016
Payment: Debit Card
Payment Taken : 22/01/2016 T+2 from postage
Confirmation Letter dated : ?
Dependent Biometrics requested: 30/01/16
Applicant Biometrics requested: 09/02/16. This after I phoned them and requested it, as it was not received with my dependents. I then received mine and my dependents letter again.
Like and idiot I then lost my request letter and phoned 15/02/16 and requested a new one on 030 0123 2241. They will send me a replacement letter. It may take 15 Working Days, which is very irritating, as I believe my application is probably near to completion.

Hello Guys,

I have applied for Ilr set(o) Employed + self employed from Tier 1 General Route along with 1 dependant

Date of application 10/02/16
Application received by Home office 11/02/16
Payment made by Debit card
Payment taken on 15/02/16

I am still waiting for any sort of acknowledgent letter/ biomatrics letter from Home office. My wife applied for her visa on 12/02/16 and she received her acknowlwdgement letter along with Biomatrics letter on 19/02/16.

Since my current leave to remain expired on 14/02/16, my employer have suspended me from work and give me grace period of 1 more week before they fire me. They have done Employee Check and since my application is not logged by a case worker, home office can not confirm my application and they have send a negative verification on the basis of which i cant work.

I am woried that i will loose my job if i dont received my biometric letter or case ID from Home office for my ILR application.

Ususllay how long does it takes for Home office to log an application once the payment have been made ?

Can some one help me to know how to request biomatircs letter from Home office.

You suggent means a lot

Many Thanks

Hi Mate,
I just called them now, but i was told they do not send out acknowledgement letters out anymore, that we will be getting our Biometric within the 4-6 weeks of them receiving your application once you can confirm that your payment has gone through, fingers cross.

Hi everyone

I am looking for advice in regards to my situation
I had a resident permit on descreationary grounds but now I made an applied for my ILR on the12th feburary 2016 (10 years route)

I recently gave birth to my son July 2015 which was before my application. I didn't add him with my application but my lawyer mentioned him in the cover letter and I sent my son's birth certificate as well. (On advice of my solicitor)

Well I just got my biometrics letter with another form asking if I have any further grounds for my application.

As you can imagine this has got me worried as my mum who did the same exact thing as me, didn't get this form with her letter.

Could this be a bad sign or is it just a procedural thing.

My solicitors can not come up with a specific reason why I was sent this form other than the HO want to inquire about the status of my son or sons father.

Any information is welcomed as I'm going slightly crazy just thinking about it. The only thing keeping me sane is looking after my son.

Thank you.

I submitted Set (M) application as British Spouse via county Nationality and checking service (Paid 90£) in Oct 2015. The case was straight forward and paid 1500 as Fee and I am still waiting for decision. Its more than 4 and half months and I am thinking why I sent my application by post. I had a choice to go on window and get decision on same day. I don't know to whom and what address I can contact to process my application quicker because I have to travel. Is anyone have idea, where I can contact to submit my request. Is anyone on Set (M) is waiting for decision?

How is your application going? It is likely that your employer has had issues in the past regarding people lying about their application. Hopefully you have received your Biometrics letter by now, as they don't send out confirmation letters anymore. I would speak to you employer and show them the Post Office receipt of postage and explain to them your predicament. It is illegal to fire someone who is applying for a new visa, however I have no idea on the rules if you are not able to prove application. I would involve UKBA if the problem persists, maybe they can speak to your employer? I haven't received anything further.

Hello All,

What if you apply for ILR via post and after 4-5 months processing period (According to the thread) you will get a refusal? Will you still have right to AR or appeal? Or do you lose that right?

Thanks in advance.
