Dear Sanid.
As you mentioned you applied as a team but its just you who been called for interview. Would you mind asking you did they interview just you or they interviewed your partner aswell???
its a team application. but they only interviewed me . May be coz my office address is the same as my personal one. Im just assuming, that might be the reason .

The questions are the same what others have already reported.

They have the same set questionnaire for everyone. Because every business is different so when you answer, the counter questioning will be specific to your own business nature.

Some of the questions which I believe were different from other applicants are below.
Answers I have given according to my nature of business and circumstance. It might be different for others.

Question - Does your business require you to register with any standard authority / agency?
If yes, details of the authority/agency.

My answer-Our business doesn’t require that but instead we have business insurance policy to cover us if anything goes wrong. (They asked my insurance details)

Question - What research you have done before starting your business?
My Answer- I have done SWOT analysis for my business & for self too, also did survey to find out current trend and demand. (They asked me for our business plan and survey reports. I gave them hard copies for both)

Question – if your employees work from home, how you track their work and measure their performance?

Question- Employees annual leave and if it’s mentioned on your pay slip. I did not have on my pay slip but on my rota instead. I provided them with the roster.

Question- why don’t you have your company’s sign board in front of your house?

Question- What measures have you taken for your employee’s safety?


My nature of business is Advertising and Designing so they asked question related to that, your might be different.

I personally believe they only interviewing Applicant's who runs their business from home. its a cost effecting decision for start ups, but HO feels they are not genuine Entrepreneurs.

May be that's the one reason. I hope you don't have to give another interview, or even if you get one ..
Good luck for that !

Seems a lot of Feb (T1 Ent extension) applicants were interviewed this month. I was also interviewed last week with more or less same questions the other members have posted on this forum.

However this is frustrating that even after waiting this long and checked/verfieid further by UKVI officials personally, no outcome/decission appearently received by anyone who was interviewed sofar.
You employees were present during interview?
They asked questions to your employees as well?
You have proper office or you working from home?

As far as I know they are not home office officials. Home office has hired a company who do the interviews. A person who was interviewed few days ago has told me the company name and it slipped out my mind.
Don't worry much. They 50 50 chances that they will come.
Make sure you have all your documents handy.
