My boyfriend applied for an extension to his Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa, which was rejected.
His timeline is
Application sent: 5th May 2017
Previous visa expiring: 6th May 2017
Biometrics done: 24th May 2017
Complex case letter received: 26th May 2017
Date of decision on the letter: 20th December 2017
Decision letter received: 28th December 2017
The reasons for refusal were
- INVESTMENTS: Unaudited accounts did not correspond to the investment claimed in the accountant's letter
- DIRECTORSHIP: CARs were rejected
- EMPLOYMENT: One of his employees, who is a British Citizen born before 1983, has no photographic ID therefore his birth certificate was shown instead (following the Tier1 Guidance). Nevertheless, this form of identity was not accepted.
The letter says that they have not carried out full verification checks on neither the documents that have been submitted nor the statements that have been made on the Application form.
It also says that he can apply for AR within 14 days from the date he received the letter but cannot provide any new evidences.
He has been suggested to start with a fresh Tier1 Extension application instead and send it before the end of the 14 days period.
First question is: does this mean that all the documents have to be updated to current date, January 2018 (e.g. for the ones that say "not earlier than 3 months" he should show OCT-NOV-DEC 2017) or does he have to provide the documents he already sent, checking all information is clearly shown (e.g. for the documents that say "not earlier than 3 months", FEB-MAR-APR 2017)?
Second question: in the previous Tier1 Extension application the accountant's letter claimed more investment as Director's Loan which did not correspond to the unaudited accounts. The accounts for the fresh application still meet the criteria of investment (>50000£) but they are not the same as the first Tier1 Extension application. Will this be acceptable?
Third question: if the new Extension application is accepted, for any future ILR application, will the time between the refusal and the day the extension is granted be accounted in the 5 years of Tier1 or not?
Thanks a lot in advance.
