Complex Settlement Application as a Tier 2 General migrant – Tax Issues. Successful!

On November 14, 2017 | In ILR / Settlement Application | By A Y & J Solicitors

Mr M had been living in the UK as a Tier 2 General migrant working for an IT company and had received an offer from a new employer. During the time he worked for his previous employer, Mr M received payslips and was paid a salary into his UK bank account on time every month.

As required for a change in employer, he applied for further leave to remain as a Tier 2 General migrant working for a new employer. His application was retained by the Home Office for further enquiries. Numerous documents were requested by the Home Office in relation to his previous employment, which included his P60s.

At this point, Mr M realised that he had never received a P60 from his previous employer. Despite several attempts to request the P60s, he was not provided with them. In the last communication with his previous employer, he was told that the company could not provide him with P60s. After further investigation, he found out that his previous employer had failed to pay the income tax and national insurance for him even though it had been deducted from his salary. Mr M was shocked and distraught when he discovered this. With less than a year to complete his 5-year stay in the UK as a Tier 2 General migrant, he was facing difficulties in extending his leave to stay in the UK and then receive the settlement.

Mr M came to A Y & J Solicitors when his Tier 2 application was pending. Based on the individual case’s circumstances, we advised and assisted Mr M in addressing the concerns raised by the Home Office. Mr M was subsequently granted further leave to remain as a Tier 2 General migrant.
