Re: ESTA Application with previous visa approvals

@max307 - Thanks for your advice/suggestions. Just in case if it helps someone else in a similar situation, I booked the flights directly to US (destination airport) and I had no problems at immigration there. I believe as long as you answer Yes to the visa refusals question, are honest on your ESTA...

Re: ESTA Application with previous visa approvals

Thanks max307, this makes sense. I haven't booked my flights yet, I was about to do that as my travel is for work related purposes so need to confirm soon. A colleague of mine is travelling from London, so plan was to travel together. I'll check if I can fly through Dublin. If immigration is cleared...

Re: Car allowance -reimbursement of cost no benifit from HO

Mightypower I have a company car fully expensed for both business and personal use. Both my employer and HMRC consider this to be part of my salary package/earnings and I have to pay tax on this. Say if my salary package is £36K basic + Car, then HMRC uses the actual value of the car when purchased ...

Re: Car allowance -reimbursement of cost no benifit from HO

Hi vkamath, Did you speak to your HR or accountants if they can give you a P11D copy? I believe by law all employers providing any benefit (car, fuel, health insurance etc) must provide a P11D to employees and submit the same to HMRC. But this is after the tax year usually around May / June, so it w...

Similar case of someone who successfully got ILR showing basic salary + car benefit although the benefit wasn't not mentioned on any pay slips.

Re: Car allowance -reimbursement of cost no benifit from HO

Yea P11D should be fine, also get a letter from your employer about the benefit to be 100% safe.

Good luck with your application and please do post the outcome of your application as this will always help other people in similar situation like you.

airf1652, Submitting P11D is your employers job, and this is only done after the end of year usually in May/June before the deadline. However the first month when you got the company car you or your employer should have notified HMRC about the taxable benefit. And they would have issued you a revise...

Thanks Karg_g. Like I mentioned before, the accountants and HMRC were very clear on this i.e. earnings include anything you pay tax on in my case company car and fuel.

The rule you have mentioned applies to allowances where they want to be sure that its not reimbursements. Benefits in kind are not allowances i.e. 'they are not in form of money or of direct cash value' which is why they will not be mentioned on payslips and not transferred to bank account. Instead ...
