Re: The way 180 days absence is considered per 12 month period

To clarify in the old rule you could have been in uk for a year. Leave january (or any day!) for 359 days and with careful planning of ILR application date (smack in the middle of that) you would be OK as that 359 days would be cut into 2 separate -non rolling- 12 months periods

Re: The way 180 days absence is considered per 12 month period

Good day, I'd like to inquire about the changes to the way a 5 year continuous period of stay is considered. So what I understand is that it is no longer possible to cut 180 day absences in two 12 month periods, and that they will consider any 12 month period with absences. So does that mean that, ...

Re: How important is it to have a business office?

Thanks for the quick response guys. The employees who work for my business are long term friends so can do most of my work by speaking with them online. As far as I am aware there is no rule about not hiring your friends is there? With the type of business I have I cannot employ just any random per...

Re: How important is it to have a business office?

If they require documents for genuineness, they will ask you. In the current environment, I would not agree. Do not leave things to the imagination of CW. In covering letter you can say for genuineness test I have attached xxx xxxx . Don't over do it and make sure documents are separate from the re...

As an online business I see no issue at all with being virtual. I am sure you meet your team often. A brief explanation in covering letter is worthwhile.

Re: Tier1 Entrepreneur Extension Approved after 12 Months - Query

In short becaue you are pre APR 14 and as long as you ILR before APR 19 you need 24 months if employment (2 one year 4 half year etc) There is a potential wrinkle in the rules. If your ILR is declined (travel, character) and you have to reapply fir 2nd extension it will be after apr 19 and it would ...

Re: Admin Review Help Tier 1 Entrepreneur Extension

I think you can reapply if AR is refused. That will get you to LR, but we have seen initial evidence that LR is not a magical "get out jail" card anymore and they do look at the your t1e period.

She has to complete 5 years. Remember to renew her Visa as a PBS dependant. Do not use form FLR(M) - partner of a settled person - that will restart the 5 year clock if you do so.
If she had entered the UK with him, would she not have been able to get ILR with the OP?
