Tier 2 Extension - Maintenance Funds

Post by hopeforall9 » Fri Oct 07, 2016 3:47 pm


I was told that if you are doing an extension application (which the same employer in the same role), then you don't need to provide maintenance funds this time round (bank statements). For anyone who has recently gone through this application process, can you confirm if this is correct or not? And if so, what do you place in the application (can't remember if there was a section for this, but just incase there is one).

Thank you in advance for your help.

Your understanding is correct. You don't need to show maintenance proof for extension applications.
