hi thanks for the note. did you get partial refund on 15th, or full refund?

Hope this will work out for the best for you!

I received partial refund
thanks. that is absolutely crazy. how can they process partial refund then in such case? Gov.uk clearly states that partial refund should mean successful case.

Hi Ali31,
Why did they refuse you? Did they call you for interview or it was a straight refusal?

I think my case is different. They charged for 3 years and whereas T1 E extension is for 2 years.

No interview. I am really trying to understand why they refused my visa application. Their reasons does not justify their own decision.

They said my employees hours are not equivalent to two full time positions. They mentioned that the total hours are 2740 hours instead of 3120 hours. They haven't given any reason why they didn't include all hours. REALLY NO REASON! I submitted RTI, payslips, P11, P45, P30s and accountant letter. My total employees hours are 3204.

Second refusal reason, they said I have only invested £34K. Whereas I have spent £22K more in addition to £34K. I also included director loan certificate (which they acknowledged in the letter) and accountant letter.

They have acknowledged employees, RTI, director loan and yet they rejected my application without any reason.

Sorry to hear that. If you have used multiple employees they must have incorrectly added your total hours.
Hope you have explained properly on your admin review.
Good luck with your review.

Can you please start your own thread so we can discuss your refusal case ? I am quite interested about employment created and your investment.
As I looked on the forum, you previously posted some incorrect interpretations of the rules regarding employment before you applied: http://www.immigrationboards.com/uk-tie ... l#p1295363

i think it is the same. we are all charged for 3 years instead of two for T1 E Extension. Hence the refund of £200. So they should refund the whole £600. what happens with another £400??

@Zimba, I followed your suggestion regarding employees hours. I will create my own thread today.

@sky_rise I have 2 dependents that's why I got £600

Hi Sky_rise,

nope, it's been 10 days since it was credited to my bank account and i am still waiting for the letter. moreover, i called them every day since then to get an update on the case - they say it is still pending (the decision on the application) and there was no letter posted/ decision not made. So advised to keep waiting. If you wish to call them directly dial 0300 123 2241, choose options made in country application and then waiting period extended normal 8 weeks. Then you get connected to an agent and you give them your case ref number, country of birth, DOB, full name. they will update you. I also wrote them an official letter in the post.

good luck! what is your situation?

all the best to all of us!

If the application is successful, they would keep the money because that money is apparently to use NHS. Why will they refund if the visa is approved ?

I have no knowledge on this but just using common sense.

they will refund part because if you extend for 2 years, you still pay initially for three years' nhs, and the difference is in any case due to you.

I applied for extension on 29th june I got partial refund on 23rd august. On 25th august got a letter from home office requesting Full birth certificate or passport copy for one of my employees as i send them short birth certificate with my application. I posted full birth certificate on 28th August but since than waiting when i call home office they say case is still open.
