Employment check for director paye

Post by alin55555 » Wed Feb 08, 2017 10:32 am

Dear members

I have recently applied for tier 1 extension. I have a risk management consulting business. As a director, I have automatic right to work for my own business. However, couple of days ago my accountant advised me that because I am on Paye (as employee of ltd co), my company Secretary should do an Ecs check on me ! All my business contracts are legally IR35 exempt

I don't think I need to do this. Would this have a negative impact on my application?

Regards

As you are in 3C until the decision of your ext application , you have same rights as your previous leave so technically you are fine.

But there are some members who received warning letters for directors on PAYE and this is due to HO immigration Dept normally issue automated letters to employers to notify them that they may have been employing someone with visa expire status.

As you are fine but I suggest there is no harm in ECS check just in case if you receive any random letter from them so you will have a positive verification result to response them and this ECS will have no impact on your existing Ext application.

There is no need to check this as the condition of your stay clearly allows you to work for your own business.
ECS check should only be done on non-EEA employees
