T1E extension

Post by sky_rise » Mon Feb 29, 2016 2:43 am

Hi guys,

Will appreciate your assessment of the employment which was created by my company in the period of 3 years.

Details:

- Received T1E in May 2013 (old employment rules)
- Employment in order form the start:
- 1 worker full time for 9 consecutive months (9 months total full time equivalent created)
- After 1 month break, another worker full time for 3 consecutive months (12 months total)
- Right after, 2 part time workers on part time employed together (for 3 months) - 16hrs a week each (15 months total)
- then straight after, 2 full time workers (40h each) employed for 5 months consecutive (25 months total)
- in the same period of 5 months, 4 part time workers were employed, for 16hrs pw each. (35 months total)

I counted an equivalent of at least 30 months worth of full time employment, a bit more.

Question: is this correct to qualify for extension and creation of at least 12+12m of full time employment?

Will appreciate your advice. I still have time to go and can hire more full time immediately.

Will appreciate your earliest advise!!

Based on what you provided and the fact that you got your visa before 6 April 2014, you created an equivalent of at least two full time jobs:

Full time 9 months + another 3 months full time = (1 full time job lasting 12 months)
Two full time employees for 5 months (10 months full-time employment) + 2 part time 16hrs/week in 3 months (equals 1 full time in 3 months) = (Totals to 1 full time job lasting 13 months)

There is no majority here nor even a fixed quorum;
just a motley crew of random & anonynmous individuals scattered across the globe.
That is what makes up the 'hive mind' of the forum.

Seems ok but make sure to include a covering letter to explain how you meet the requirements.

shouldn't the employment be continuous without breaks? or can we make up time simply by adding various employees ?

No, the employment does not need to be continuous.
Paragraph 50 from appendix A of immigration rules:
50. Where the applicant’s last grant of entry clearance or leave was as a Tier (Entrepreneur) Migrant, the jobs must have existed for a total of at least 12 months during the period in which the migrant had leave in that category. This need not consist of 12 consecutive months and the jobs need not exist at the date of application, provided they existed for at least 12 months during the period in which the migrant had leave as a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Migrant.

very urgent Q - practicing accountant and certificate?

Post by sky_rise » Sat Apr 23, 2016 8:51 pm

Hello everyone,

I have an urgent question on the accountant that i can use for the purpose of signing documents.

the rules read:

"An original accountant’s letter verifying the net increase in business activity. The
accountant must have a valid licence to practice or practising certificate and must be a member of
the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the Association of Authorised Public Accountants, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, the Institute of Financial Accountants, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, the Association of International Accountants or the Association of Accounting Technicians."

My accountant has a certificate from ACCA but as such does not have a practice, or any other special license apart from being certified by the ACCA (being a member). He works as a finance executive in another business company. Will his letter be sufficient? Or do i need to find a person who works for particular accounting company and is practicing.

Please advise whether i can use him for the purpose of the visa - singing letters and providing them?

Will be highly appreciated.

Regards,
SR

No need for an accountant to have a practice, only his/her valid certificate matters. This is really self explanatory :?

zimba88, do you mean the ACCA certificate that he has, or "practicing certificate", which he does not have? This is a separate one. thank you in advance for reply.
Maybe forum members could shed some light on their "issue" with that situation?

Hello everyone,

For the T1E extension, do we need to submit ORIGINAL business bank statements, or the online printed copy will satisfy? Will appreciate your guidance.

in the part "evidence you have invested in the UK business" - required "Printout of a Companies House document showing the address of the registered office in the UK, or head office if it has
no registered office, and your name, as it appears on the application form, as a director and a printout of the filing history page..

I am submitting current appointment report for this, the updated company registration certificate with my details. But, printout of the filing history page - when i am in my CH company account, it says they do not show any filings, if they are older than 10 days - please help? it says: "Below are details of WebFiled company data for *********. The items below are for the last 10 days ONLY."

sorry i have difficulty understanding this wording - whether this is either or both. Basically, is both are needed, i have to leave my current accountant, who has ACCA, and go for an expensive and very time consuming solution - going to the accountancy practice and starting all over! So, if only having ACCA is enough - please confirm, and i will stick with it. if not - i need to act asap as i have to apply for extension next week!

Have you ordered a free current appointment report from here http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk//wcfr ... ompanyInfo ? Then the filing history is its on the last page

They need both license to practice AND must be a member of ACCA, .. etc
If an accountant does not have a licence to practice, then how come he is doing your accountancy as an agent for you ?

zimba88, many thanks.

yes i have ordered the report from companies house, it got delivered - but it states recent filing, but it does not state the director (myself) for every year there...

Do we need to order original bank statement from the bank? (they charge me £5.50 per PAGE), or we can print online, bring to the branch and stamp them each page?

thank you in advance,

SR

Current appointment report shows CURRENTLY appointed directors. So if you were appointed within the first six months and your name shows up on the report, it means you have been a director since the appointment day. We all extended with the same documents without any issues.
Do we need to order original bank statement from the bank? (they charge me £5.50 per PAGE), or we can print online, bring to the branch and stamp them each page?
Bank statements must be original. Otherwise the copies must be stamped by your bank and you need to get a letter from your bank confirming that you have a business account.
Just supplying the originals is less of a pain. You need only few pages of statements (to show loan transfers and to show you have an account) I sent only two pages !!

Yes, you need to send this for each employee for all the period that you are claiming points.
Be aware that this is usually generated by the payroll software you use (or you accountant uses) and it might look different from the sample you linked to.

zimba88, thank you for the guidance- i have requested from the accountant.

Some people i employed full time were on 40 hours a week. When calsulating total hours of employment for them, should i calculate them as 40hours a week, or 30hours a week? They were on permanent full time contract and annual salary based on 40hours. Please advise.

Calculate it based on the hourly rate they worked in each week of the year (a year is considered 52 weeks)

For example an employee worked 40 hours a week for a year for £16 an hour :
(40 hours x 52 weeks x £16 an hour) = (£33,280) This must almost match the total gross salary paid by you in that year to him/her

I have two on a 18900 (35 hours a week contract)

Hourly rate comes up as 10.38 an hour if i calculate using 35 hours.

But rate comes up as 12.11 if I divide the monthly salary with 130 hours (30 hours cap).
And payslips are just like basic pay £1575 monthly. Do I need to change the payslips?
On the form they ask hourly rate shall I put 12.11 or 10.38?

Thanks

You do this (£18,900 / 52 weeks) / 35 hours = £10.38 your hourly rate. That is what you put on the form.

Caseworker will do this --> £10.38 rate * min 30 hours a week * 52 weeks = £16,192
You paid more than this salary, so you score the points for this job
