At least £50,000 has been invested into the business and actively spent furthering the business plan assessed in the applicant’s previous endorsement.
The number of the business’s customers has at least doubled within the most recent 3 years and is currently higher than the mean number of customers for other UK businesses offering comparable main products or services.
The business has engaged in significant research and development activity and has applied for intellectual property protection in the UK.
The business has generated a minimum annual gross revenue of £1 million in the last full year covered by its accounts.
The business is generating a minimum annual gross revenue of £500,000 in the last full year covered by its accounts, with at least £100,000 from exporting overseas.
The business has created the equivalent of at least 10 full-time jobs for resident workers. Each of those jobs must have been maintained for at least 12 months. A 30 hour per week job is considered to be a full time job. Two or more-part time jobs that add up to 30 hours per week may be combined to represent the equivalent of a single fulltime job, as long as each of the jobs has existed for at least 12 months. However, a single full-time job of more than 30 hours of work per week does not count as more than one full-time job.
The business has created the equivalent of at least 5 full-time jobs for resident workers, which have an average salary of at least £25,000 a year (gross pay, excluding any expenses).
If there are two or more applicants working for one business using the same endorsement of the endorsement body, each one of those applicants would need to fulfil the requirements separately. For example, if the applicants are relying on the creation of jobs then each one would need to provide evidences of two separate 10 jobs i.e. 20 jobs.
The applicants are allowed to have absences of a maximum of 180 days in a 12 month period counted backwards from the date of application. Exceptionally, the home office may also allow absences for more than 180 days in any 12 months period provided the applicant is able to provide evidence that the reason of those absences were because of life threatening illness of the applicant or a close family member or due to natural disaster.
You can prove English language requirements by having either:
an English qualification at B1 Level
a degree taught or researched in English
national of an English-speaking country
Another important part of fulfilling the knowledge of language and life requires you to pass the Life in the UK test.The test is required under the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 and taken in order to test the knowledge of British life and sufficient proficiency in the English language.
Spouse / Civil Partner / Unmarried Partner of the applicant and their children who are already on dependant visas, may also apply for ILR provided they also fulfil relevant criteria. If the dependants have not completed the required time period then they would need to apply for further leave to remain application while the main applicant may proceed to apply for ILR.
If the Indefinite leave to remain application is refused by the Home office, the applicant is be given a right of administrative review of the decision that must be exercised within 14 days of the date of service of decision. There will not be any general right of appeal against any such decision made by the home office. If the administrative review also fails, the matter then can be taken to the Upper Tribunal by lodging judicial review proceedings.
