Other request should work then they are most likely to redirect you or give you the adequate mail. Besides you can also type in your message in that message space
Thank you, I will get back to you once it's done.

He went about it the wrong way. He should have had the company write a letter taking full sponsorship of the trip and used the company’s bank statement as proof of funds. Then there would have been no need for them to transfer the funds into his account (ECO would have just seen it as lodgement)

This will not work as you can not use a company's bank account to fund your private foreign trip, the company is not his and the trip has nothing to do with the company.

Yes please. note that the company make way more than that monthly and I always reinvest once a car is sold.

The mistake you made was calling a profit you made from the car business a salary, what you have is pretty much a one-man business and you take home all profit, that shouldn't be called a profit because you decided what to pay yourself and that is not salary works.

You don't have to present payslip if you have non, explain that in the form that your company does not issue payslip that you get paid directly into your bank account. Those payments will be seen by the ECO.

Many thanks Shankar . There was a letter in respect of that but, the letter was not well explained. See attached the letter. I will appreciate if you can give us way in which we can explain the refusal to ECO. As for this second application he is sponsoring him self, so all expenses trip is from his pocket.
No na, even the letter is too shallow. It does not reflect any ingredient from a corporate entity. it look more like a cook up story. Settle down, let your MD or HRM draft a good letter, for example, the last sentence of that letter is not necessary. I am not trying to run it down.

@Justwise I appreciate your comment. Please can you kindly explain to us how an employer can make a travel incentive to his employee. There are ways to go about it. I believe that employer gives travel voucher or paid vacation to staffs who are outstanding. If the award and travel incentive is genuine one ,what are the steps to be taking to apply for visa under this route of paid vacation? Or are u saying that an employer can not offer a paid vacation to his employee if the organisation is doing very well in biz? Is it that such incentive can not be paid into receipent's account? Please what are the ways to go about it. Kindly explain please. I believe your explanation will make us to gain knowledge on such route, even help those who might have similar case. Thanks
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by bigtt76(f): 7:09am On Mar 13
Sounds good and yes you can apply attaching a those documents for a visitor visa.

Why you earn so much shouldn't be an issue to them rather what they want to know is that you get renumerated monthly by your employer. Don't forget to get a letter if introduction from your company HR corroborating whatever claims you have as a staff of the company, stating your designation, wage and leave period. All the best to you.



Micafe:
Thanks for replying.

Yes I pay tax, I'm still processing my tax clearance for 2018, hopefully it will be out before reapplying. I can aswell add my VAT receipt for the past 6 months.
Yes I have an survey and approved plan with an ongoing construction in my name.
I have an investment plan with axamansard where i save 250k monthly, the balance now is about 7M plus and its accessible anytime.
Yes, I have my daughter, wife, dad and siblings.

I have decided to apply as a visitor without adding bill of lading or purchase invoices. I will write a letter to explain why I earn so much.

But can I add my cac documents if applying strictly with my personal account as a tourist?
Also, should I add maybe a year or 10months bank statement to show a steady salary?

thanks.

On getting to the UK she remarried and became a british citizen.

Good morning @justwise and other gurus in the house

Please can anyone help with a Template on how to explain in details funds into an account for a visa application.

I have a salary account with inflows and outflow and a savings account without much inflow and outflow which is basically for savings e.g contribution and also payments from real estate commissions. Can I also go ahead and present the bank statements for my savings and explain on how I got the money? Or should I summit just the salary account statement and my husband's statement who is a co-sponsor? Please I need your assistance as am almost done with my application, thank you.

Hello @justwise

Please under which visa category can one apply for expedited visa to make funeral arrangements for a sibling (uk permanent resident) who died two nights ago? Intended applicant is to be sponsored by his company here in Lagos.

Thanks.
Re: General UK Visa Enquiries - Part 3 by hormolarry: 1:31pm On Mar 13
Hello Gurus in the house. Thanks for your assistance at all times in this platform, it's greatly appreciated. Please i want to make a visitor visa application for my mum, but am not sure how much i need to have in my account in order to sponsor her.
*She is a salary earner and she currently has over 1Million naira in her account, not just deposited money, she receives salary every month ending*. I also have around £3000 pounds in my account and am working full time.
1). My question is that will this amount be enough to show as prove of fund?
2). The money in my account is not up to 28days, does it really matter? Am not quite sure.

Although this is not her first time coming, she was sponsored by my dad for her last trip because I was still at the Uni then. But now that am working full time, i feel I should take the responsibility.
Thanks as I await your response.

There is nothing wrong with that and it will reduce the cost of the trip from your own side because you will not be paying for accommodation. Your friend needs to send you evidence of that accommodation and data page of her passport

No responsible company will do that most especially the way your inlaw cooked up that story.

Your performance bonus will be part of your employment contract and the payment will stated in the payslip, you will be paid travel allowance on official trip and not on private trip.

Please I would appreciate your feedback on this issue... I have 2 bank accounts, one is specifically for my daily business transactions, my maximum balance doesn't exceed 300k... While the 2nd account is used for saving from the business... I save at least 50 to 200k on it every week/fortnight depending on business transactions but I hardly withdraw from the account.. Like I have done only about 3 withdrawals from the account in the past 6 months... The account has a closing balance of 3.5m currently...

Should I submit the 2 account statements or what do you advise... Thanks and God bless you
