Re: combining Part time jobs

Hi,

I am of the opinion that you only have to show the existence of the jobs you provided in your initial extension which in this case would be from 2014. You can sustain the same jobs or create new jobs.

Hope it helps..

Thanks

Re: Part Time Job Creation Confusion

There is no clear guide or rules on part time hours. However you can add them together to reach min of 30 hours a week. I made an attempt to show how to calculate the hours for part time workers here: http://www.immigrationboards.com/uk-tier-1-entrepreneur-visas/criteria-for-hours-calculation-apply...

It is misconception that a month is 4 weeks or 120 hours work, it is NOT. It is actually on average 4.33 weeks :roll: HO requires ONLY 130 hours a month or 30 hours week for full time role, more hours are discarded.

Re: job Hours calculation

The refusal reason in the screenshot suggests they considered upto 130 hours but for last two years. As the decision is already with your friend I would assume transitional arrangements does apply to the applicant. So what else was missed??
