That was not my point. My point was where does such law provides that as long as one of the joint claimants provides a NINO, then the other is not so required to provide one, as long as they have never been issued with one?

can i claim a child tax credit Well no, but you and your wife jointly can! The lack of NI for your wife does not prevent a claim being made, but the Tax Credits office may say otherwise, but they would be wrong. The legislation was changed a few years ago. There has been advise on this forum that t...

But a more general point, the law about needing to provide a NINO when applying for Tax Credits changed 2 or 3 years ago.

If your employer does not confirm that you are still needed for the same work and that your employment with them is continuing, then your ILR is likely to be refused. As alanwong said above, you need to convince your employer why the letter is needed.

I can assure you 100% that it will not be a problem. The reason they ask for bank statement is not to see how much money you have in the account. They ask for bank statement in order to see that the salary stated on the employer letter and on the wage slip corresponds with the one paid by your emplo...

The guidance says not apply more than 28 days before the end of the qualifying period and if you do, they may refuse the application with no refund of the fee. However, you must apply before your current permission to stay in the UK ends. I was granted a five year visa work permit on 20/05/2008 The ...
