ILR - Earnings

Hi, Do the earnings have to be while you're based in the UK or through a UK company? The guidance doesn't appear to include that and according to the form, there are different sections for where the earnings were earned, where the company is based and currency conversion. Would the following be acce...

I think ORelly's point makes sense. However, why are they amending it for some and not others when it's disputed? It does not appear to be consistent.

Payslips have been referred in several posts above - are these issued by yourself as the Director? Is that acceptable? I don't have any and my accountant has said that they don't prepare them.

However, they aren't really required are they? Do most of you submit them though?

Accountant registration documentation?

Hi, It states that evidence of registration of the accountant must be provided. I'd like to check what type of documentation you have provided e.g. registration number or other documents and if these were original documents or copies? I don't think my accountant would send me the original documents....

What confuses me is why evidence for self-employment is being requested for when the OP is not self-employed. Are they doing that for all limited company directors?

If they ask you, then submit them. I have few friends been asked to show Invoices.
Are there requirements for the format e.g. particular details that have to be included, signed or stamped? Will a basic bare MSWord document be acceptable?

Re: TIER-1 Extension - for Own Limited Company owner (Direct

Company history and HMRC check.
That's interesting. I don't think that's stated in the Guidance. Do you know what they're checking for or if any additional documentation is required?

Hi Tariqul,

Did you encounter errors while doing it? It could be a technical error?

On another note, all I get is errors. They are shown as available, but when I click on them and key in the information, I get an error message that the ID cannot be checked. Did you get that too?

Category for doctors-in-training after foundation?

Which category would that fall under - 1 or 2? A doctor-in-training who was on the Postgraduate Doctor and Dentist Visa for the Foundation Programme and has been given a place for further training in a speciality?

Thank you.
