Re: *** COVID19 Tier 1E impact and Government support *** Discuss here ONLY

Hi all,

Re: *** COVID19 Tier 1E impact and Government support *** Discuss here ONLY

Marc you just explained it perfectly

What I have done for March salary is, furloughed employees from mid march, took the past average and calculated the remaining March period hours, which were more than required anyways, multiplied by the hourly rate and took 80% of the wage.

This question is in reference to another users’ post where the user stated that his application was turned down and one of the reasons was that the user took a long time to invest in the business. https://www.immigrationboards.com/uk-tier-1-entrepreneur-visas/second-entrepreneur-extension-refused-on...

Re: Big changes to continuous residence rule for ILR applicants under PBS

Yes, subtle but not minor for someone effected. Previously, if you had more than 6 months in a 12 month period, you can plan when to apply for ILR to ensure that the period gets split over two years. Now you can't, you will have to wait longer before you apply. Hi Marc, So if I was granted initial ...
