Does anyone know if we can show 100% of the Limited Company's earning for Visa Extension or is it just 80% (i.e. minus tax deduction) please? This would mean can we withdraw 100% of dividends or not? - Angie You have to exclude tax (...

Nobody is too concerned about Americans However after a work permit your visiting permit kicks in. The time your work permit was valid does not go toward the time of your visiting permit. Do you have any references for this? It is not that I don't believe you, it's just that this has come up before...

Plus there is a limit of only 2-3 top CV's per agent for a job, they can't forward all. Some of it is also driven by prejudice - based on ...

Either you fulfil criteria or you don't.
You need to earn the amount for the period.
Adjustments won't work.
