I have just submitted my Stage 2 application for a Tier 1 Exceptional Promise (Tech Nation) visa. I have been working with my company under a Tier 2 General visa for the last 2+ years, and will continue to do so for roughly six months. Does anyone have experience in keeping the same job after the switch - do you need to make a new contract with your employer and/or notify HMRC, etc? My immigration lawyer was not sure.
I am assuming changing tiers would not affect the tax situation as everything goes through payroll. That is unless I start my own company and invoice for side gigs, which is not going to happen for the next six months.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
