Did u read minzys post. So u can prepare urself. Ur employees are they still working for u. As ur 50,000 investment. Dont think it will be too much of questions. And i am sure u dont have too many employees or expenses which can be discussed in 4hours. Dont stress urself. Take care!

party rocker, you are gonna get anything between 1 to 6 months if you are getting a visa or a decison. I believe if you hit almost 6 months, you qualify for an interview. Just bear this in mind . Make use of this time as much as you can all the best

Dear Zimba and other senior members,

I got an email from HO that they will be visiting my office and take interview there. I just want to know the datils of how it could be? What might they seek for? What question may arise?

My business is management consultancy firm. Applied for extension in April, 50K share capital.

Has anyone experienced about this visiting office by HO and interviewing there?

Please let me know what preparations I should take.

Thank you.

Jonathan

All the best.

Thanks
Minnzzy

Can members be respectful to the OP of this topic and not turn it into a general discussion and chit chat thread asking low level questions such as 'when did you apply' etc.

Hi

I applied end of March and received Complex letter issue on 12th May 2017 (on a 50K extension route). UKVI tracking still says awaiting decision, last updated 26th April 2017. I haven't received any correspondence from HO after 12th May 2017. Do you think i will be getting a call for interview in which case i have a question to ask.

To cut down my losses, i temporarily had to give up my office space as since we are service providing IT consultancy firm, we either work from home or client's premises. My business address is the same as my accountant's address and that is also where we set-up our client's meetings for the time being. I was hoping to get new office space after approval of my visa since i did not want to change my business address while my application is under consideration with HO.

What i wanted to know was if these HO visits are un-announced or would they contact me before setting up any interview, although my case was pretty much straightforward and i am not sure why a complex case letter was issued. Once of my friends had more complex things in his application and he got approval in pretty much 2 months.

Just whitelist gov.uk domain. You don't need the exact email

This might be specific/limited to OP circumstances in which HO decided that the interview needs to be done in person and in the office. Such visits for Tier 1E is uncommon and probably conducted when HO is suspecting something
