You would expect to get a letter confirmation of the interview from the Home Office after you have agreed the interview date.

Is the interview being conducted at a Home Office address?

I havent agree the date as I just have a baby who is a month old . I requested them to postpone the date . Reason is My home address is in Nottingham and my Registred office is in London. I can’t travel to London for next one month . They asked me to see me at my home but this is not my registered office .i asked compliance officer to hold a meeting at meeting room near my home which I usually use for meetings but the compliance officer only wants to visit my premises where I’m operating from . Which is my registered office in London

what you have added a big question mark on your application, that you cannot travel to your office, you must have said you are maternity leave.

Never ever say you can't always tell them why in your case maternity leave

Thanks for reply . I have a office space near my home address which I’m using for business operation .
My registerd office is in London but I’m operating business from this office. As I have baby now I decided not to travel away for next couple of months and operate my business from this new premises .

My advice is to explain the fact that you have an operating base and that is where your records are held. The officer will then arrange for the visit to take place at your actual operating office. Your registered office is NOT your operating address.

They will not accept a rent a room for a day venues for visits and if you are stating you want to use the registered office address given on on your application then you would have to bring your records to the office for the visit.

If you truly have an actual full time operating base and not just a rent a room for a day set up then that is where you should hold the visit.

Deferring the visit for a couple of weeks is usually not a problem but they won’t wait for a month to go by unless there are exceptional reasons. Having a baby is not an exceptional reason.

Yes I have full time office base where I’m operating my business . I understand and will explain it to them to arrange a visit in my operating office not at my virtual address (registred office) . Is it fine ?

It will transfer from a London visiting team to one from the Midlands that is about the only difference 👍

thanks for reply Zimba, i have gone through the zero hour contracts guidance you mentioned. one of my employee was with me more than 1 year without any holiday pay is it still all right if i have a zero hour contract with him?

also the guidence says

"Any individual on a zero hours contract who is a ‘worker’ will be entitled to at least the National Minimum Wage, paid annual leave, rest breaks and protection from discrimination"

in my case i havent paid any anual leave .
please guide me as my meeting with home office is due soon.

You failed to follow the law but as far as I see this should not come up during extension. I suggest to seek advice when you engaged in things like zero hour contract to avoid legal headaches

If it is spotted as part of the Home Office visit it will impact your case. Failure to pay annual leave to minimum wage employees results in the hourly rate not being met overall and therefore you have not employed your staff in a manner that qualifies them to be considered as legally employed. Net result the entire employment period is discounted.
