The 28 days rule to be abolished and replaced with 14 days instead even for ILR applications, See discussion here: http://www.immigrationboards.com/uk-tie ... 19342.html
Changes and clarifications to Tier 1E rules are as follows:
IMPORTANT: It is also been clarified that for employees after 5 October 2013, you MUST ONLY submit FPS reports to prove that you are reporting PAYE via RTI. This is important given that many applicants thought that HO will accept alternative evidence of reporting RTI like P11, etc:7.19. The Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) category caters for applicants coming to the UK to set up, take over, or be involved in the running of a business in the UK. The following minor technical changes are being made to this category to clarify various evidential requirements and to correct minor drafting errors:
•An amendment to clarify that applicants supplying third party evidence do not need to meet the requirement for their bank statements to cover a consecutive 90-day period of time.
•An amendment to make clear that applicants who are also accountants cannot sign-off their own accounts and/or funding evidence.
•Making a provision to allow applicants with funding from an endorsed Seed Funding Competition to provide a letter from an authorised official of the fund as confirmation that money is being made available for investment (rather than a letter from an accountant as at present). This brings the provision for funding from endorsed Seed Funding Competitions into line with the provisions for funding from UK and Devolved Government Departments.
•A clarification that the company‟s register of members must come from Companies House.
•In response to queries from external stakeholders, minor clarifications are being made to existing Immigration Rules around job creation and evidence to demonstrate Pay As You Earn (PAYE) reporting to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
