Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
a - the fact that your extension was approved is a clear enough evidence that you scored points for investment. That was the mandatory condition for extension approval.zamanam wrote: ↑Tue Mar 31, 2020 12:27 pmHI
Tier 1 E £200k route based ILR application I have couple of queries
a- investment documents are not needed if we score point at Tier 1E extension - what is the evidence that we scored points as we didn't receive any letter from HO confirming these points were granted - we indicated that we invested £248k at extension
b-SET O form asks for start date for Job and staff - we have retained the jobs we created at extension and post extension they were filled on an off but continuously for last 12 months . Are these jobs okay.
and should re write job creation as actual pre extension job creation date or date we are claiming them for?
c- For ILR do we need to show any home documents as many of these forum are discussing but in online application I can not see any such requirement
d- Can we apply for dependants and main applicants separately as dependants will complete their 5 year time after 4/5 month?
if so application is not asking anywhere re dependants - do we still need to write about dependants for later on - such as in a cover letter?
e-Do we need to upload copies for passport for 5 years as well or it will go as an original document
Thanking you in advance and hope this is the right way to ask these questions - I respect group rules but not sure if this is the best approach?
C - only needed when you are applying for your partner - you need to show cohabitation proofzamanam wrote: ↑Wed Apr 01, 2020 1:05 pmThanks Marcnath
A. Tier 1 e. Extension mean no evidence is required - thanks
C- home documents means bills or proof of address
D - which is the form for ILR for dependant without main migrant application - only one I can find is below but its is for entry clearance - doesn't seems right or do we need to apply using set o form just for the dependant

F- Unlike Mar 2020, English language test list dated April 2020 doesn't contain Trinity test only IELTS is allowed - do you know if this is correct?
If we are applying on 01 may and passed trinity test in Feb but it is not included in Apr list then is it fine or we need to pass ielts.
That is correct, however, there are a number of other flexibility that have been given.zamanam wrote: ↑Mon Apr 06, 2020 2:23 pmHi Gurus
Per latest guidance it seems furlough workers will not be counted towards 2 jobs - I had staff in post for 11 months just last 12th months our business is closed. We are still paying staff and if we don't apply for furlough grant can these staff be counted towards ilr for month 12 for tier 1 e
Yes they would. Why wouldn’t they !!!?zamanam wrote: ↑Tue Apr 07, 2020 12:23 pmThanks but it doesn’t answer my question.
I know about flexibilities but temporary extension will not be free of cost ! It’s another mean money collection tactics as if visa holders and their businesses are not impacted by the Covid19.
My question was we are still paying staff and we didn’t apply for furlough grant, business is close so they are not working but paid 100% for this month as my staff agreed to take their annual holidays for a months which is per their service contract
Would these staff be counted towards ilr for this month to make total 12 for tier 1.
There is nothing in the immigration rules that back up what your lawyer says.zamanam wrote: ↑Tue Apr 07, 2020 5:09 pmNote please ignore my above query I can’t edit or delete it and find below my queries - thanks
Thank you Marcnath and Zimba
One of the lawyer said they Home office won’t as business is closed unless your business is genuinely open you can’t just pay the staff and fulfill these requirements.
They know that our business is closed as it’s a restaurant and bar - we opened it as a takeaway but as this is a new set up for our restaurant so up till now it’s no substantial sale - one of two £10 ish transactions and most of the days zero transactions as it’s close to excel center which is being converted into a hospital and most of the area is close as our restaurant is at the back ie not on the road so no foot fall for there .
I don’t know whether lawyer is right or misguided.
What’s your opinion re this ?
Actual start datezamanam wrote: ↑Tue Apr 07, 2020 5:09 pm
I have some other queries re staff and Set O form :
I would appreciate if you can share your opinion
1- We have created three jobs and all of them were created at the start of business ie before extension - set o forms ask for the date when these jobs were created what should I write
Pre extension actual start date of the jobs or the start date of current job claim period
There is no evidence needed for start datezamanam wrote: ↑Tue Apr 07, 2020 5:09 pm
2- all three of above jobs were staffed by the same staff who held this job at the time of extension - thus none of the claimed period (last 12 months) will have start date for the employ - what evidence we can include for start data - how about P11 deduction card?
Can't see any reason why not.

Thanks again for your response.
Actually I agree there is nothing in the rules - its only genuineness test where we have a risk when HO can question last months salary as genuine transaction as business was closed due to corona.
