sorry, I was not clear. I said 'if I apply right before my visa expires' thinking that it takes >1month to reach a decision, so I would get the appeal.

Going back to one of my initial questions: When I appeal, can I add new evidence, or I have to do it with my initial application package?

thanks

sushdmehta: thanks for your reply.
sorry, a bit confused here. Then if I apply right before my visa expires, I will get the right to appeal. Can I stay in UK in the meantime?

another related query: If you get rejected because you fell short of points. Can you appeal it if by providing new evidence or do you have to use your initial documents?

thanks

Thanks for your replies.

sushdmehta: That was the thing in my mind as they usually ask for this.

I guess (hope) it should not have a bad effect if you just fall short of points.

what happens if you get rejected

Hello,

I am wondering what happens when you get rejected for your Tier 1 application. Do they put a reject stamp on your passport? Can it have any adverse effects for future visa applications to UK (tier2, tourist visa) or any other country?

Thanks

qualification for accountant in US

Hi,

I will submit an accountant letter for my contract work in US. I was wondering what qualification/registration number should my accountant add to the letter as a verification? CPA number or something else?

Thanks

I was planning to submit one of the 10 which is the letter from the company stating my earnings including net/gross instead of the accountant letter, but I am not sure if that can be submitted for a contract work. I guess my real question is there any other document that can be submitted instead of ...

ok, then I better apply as a contractor. In the policy guideline, it says: "If the applicant is a contractor who does not operate either through his/her own company or as an employee, he/she may provide: an accountant’s letter confirming a breakdown of his/her gross and net earnings for the period...

well, I was working like an employee (going to the office everyday) but they did not show me under their payroll to save from taxes and paperwork and paid me via checks. Unfortunately, it is a common practice among small firms in the US. any other ideas?

clarification

Although I am not a tax expert, I think it is legitimate that they did not withhold any taxes (thus gross=net) as I was using my OPT which makes me exempt from FICA and Medicare withholdings.

But, would the caseworker think I am a contractor? I am quite confused with this..

Re: counting earnings of the month that you are applying

counting earnings of the month that you are applying

Hi,

The company I am working for pays me before the end of the month and payslips are available as well. I want to apply before March 31st to keep it safe from the changes, but I might need my earnings for March. Can I count them if I apply, lets say on March 28th?

Thanks.

salaried or contractor?

Hello, how do the case workers make the distinction between salaried employment and contractor? I worked in the United States for an employer who paid me via weekly or monthly checks with different amounts. For those familiar with the US system, I did not get W2, but got 1099. I am not submitting an...
