Thanks Zen. I am a bit clear. They contacted 4 clients out of 5 and they forced them to tell each and every bit of the invoice from 2 clients. UKBA asked 2 clients about me that you know this person and had any services so they confirmed. But from 2 clients they did detailed investigation asking qu...

Sorry to hear that. I understand this must be a difficult time for you. When did you make the application? How many invoices did you submit with your application and how many clients did you have? Does the refusal letter specify the exact invoices/client(s) which couldn't be verified? What other doc...

You would be eligible for ILR 28 days before 7 Aug 2014, which by my calculation is 10 July 2014. If you apply for ILR more than 28 days before completing the qualifying period, your application will be refused as specified in the SET(O) Guidance. You would need to apply for a further Tier 1 extensi...

Under section 19, you maybe allowed to use fresh evidence in an appeal only if the UKBA have alleged that a document that you had submitted with your application was either false or invalid. Based on that, I would say that the new evidence that you have submitted now will be inadmissible especially ...

I would advise you to appeal this refusal in the same way as you did for your initial Tier 1 application but also add an additional ground (that you also qualify for ILR under the 10 year Long Residence rules) to be considered at appeal as a further backup. If you send an ILR application under the L...

Yes, the address is correct and the same one which I used and the amount is correct too. The acknowledgement letter is issued only after the payment is cleared. In the case of payment by banker draft/cheque, UKBA gives a timeline of 5 working days to clear and then the letters are sent by 2nd class ...

I've done it 3 days in a row now. The survey cookie 'refreshes' everyday it seems and allows you to do it on the same PC again. Also, you can use different browsers on the same PC to submit multiple times on the same day. Using Google Chrome 'Incognito' mode also allows you to submit multiple entries!
