Ltd. Company - No NI for minimum withdrawn Salary - Advice

Post by npanglia » Sat Apr 14, 2012 11:39 am

Hi,

As a director of limited company, I have withdrawn minimum threshold salary of £589 for the claim period and hence havent paid any NI or PAYE for the period. It is reflecting in my salary slips (attested by my accountant) as well.

In my cover letter for Tier 1 extension, I have provided clarification stating "Majority of my earnings are through dividend and the salary withdrawn is below secondary threshold limit as defined by HMRC, hence I am not liable to pay any NI for the period".

Please advice if the statement above is good enough clarification on NI for Tier 1 Extension.

I do not prefer to mention on your cove letter.

But ,589 /per month no problem.

That's scaring me now.
I have already mentioned this in my cover letter and Posted.
Seniors - please advice if that's a problem. I know nothing can be done, however trying to appease my apprehensions...

I'm not a caseworker (obviously) so don't make the decision but at the end of the day you are complying with your tax obligations - it's just that at the level of salary you are at, neither yourself nor the company are required to pay National Insurance contributions.

You are far from a unique case so it is unlikely to bring UKBA's office to a standstill! Also the fact that you mentioned it in your cover letter is irrelevant in terms of consequences.
Please don't private message me or e-mail me for free personal advice - you are just wasting your time writing something that won't get answered.
Anything written here shouldn't be construed as being formal advice given in a professional capacity.

Hi npanglia,

Did you get your visa without any complications? I mean with no queries from UKBA? My ext is also due and i am facing the same situation.
