Re: Can't get married until after my visa expires

Another option is to try different nearby registry offices until you find one which will see you sooner and have the service sooner.
Would mean the civil partnership ceremony would need to take place in the same region as the registry office you registered the service with however.

FLR (M) Self Employed Financial Req Success!

Hi, We've just been successful in obtaining my wife's FLR (M) this morning at the Glasgow Service Centre. Absolutely delighted! :D I thought I'd share a few tips to help people in future. Particularly as my accounting dates for my sole trader business (earning around £23k a year) run from May - May ...

Re: Sole Trader Financial Requirements (What dates??)

Hi Ricky, Thanks again for your input. I am doing my tax return correctly and lawfully, as clarified by several accountants and HMRC itself. I pay tax for the tax year 6th April 2016 - 5th April 2017 on my profits from my accounting period from 9th May 2015 - 8th May 2016 (It might seem weird, but t...

Re: Sole Trader Financial Requirements (What dates??)

Thanks again Ricky, that's exactly the way I would interpret it too. I'm just concerned from reading here and other forums the advice to sole traders has consistently been "you need to have accounts from 6th April - 5th April or else they will not grant the Visa / FLR!". Can I ask have you been thro...

Re: Refused Spouse visa September 2017, Appeal or Renew

My understanding is they used to ask for proof of class 2 NI contributions as they used to be paid quarterly by direct debit, but now are collected at the same time as the tax bill is paid. Instead of asking for proof of class 2 NI contributions they ask for proof that the business is still running,...

Re: Sole Trader Financial Requirements (What dates??)

Thanks for your input Ricky, do you speak from experience of going down this route? Just everyone else I have seen on forums etc has seemed to suggest it will not be allowed, and my accounting year should be April - April (at least to meet the Visa requirements). :roll:
