HO will visit office and take Interview at office

Post by skconsultant » Fri Sep 01, 2017 3:19 pm

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

Zimba88 hasn't logged into the forum for a week. You might have a long wait if that is the only member you are expecting to get advice from.

@Skconsultant,

You are not alone as pointed out by Vish79. Hopefully you will get your answer by the 6th of September (if your interview does not fall on or before the 6th) when other members have had the experience.

I remember reading on here a post about HO visiting business premise unannounced and conducting interview the member stated that Him and His partner were asked lots of questions and that he provided additional documents to the officers.

Unfortunately I not able to find that post.

When is your interview scheduled for?

Wishing you the very best :)

Hello SK Consultant
what kind of expenditures ( from your investment) you had, what kind of documents you have provided for your office property?
Just trying to find out that why they want to see the office, as if they just want interview of the candidate, they can invite them to come for interview to HO offices.

Hello everyone,

My office visit and interview is on Tuesday. Most of my expenditures gone by staffs' salary as this is consultancy firm and we do not need much furniture and fixture. I have 2 small rooms office and 2 staffs along with my partner. I have renting contract.

Not only zimba88, I also welcome other senior members' comments like you CR001.

If anyone came across this situation, can share his/her experience. The members who had an interview in HO can also suggest us.

Thank you all in advance.

Did the HO mention any other details in the E mail ?

In which week of April did you apply for visa extension ?

Have HO started taking interviews at offices of applicants rather than online or at their offices now?
