I saw that too on gov Uk. But I can’t remember the link. I think the applicant can reclaim their IHS funds back.

Does this only applies to the applicant? Does it apply to their spouse by any chance?

For covid time when it was implemented yes it covered spouse and dependant got their money back. You apply after working every 6 months. Covered any job working in care capacity.

I am too lazy to go check if that was changed.

Wow, so can you chase the refund before a decision has been made or after? I work for the NHS, and my spouse is still waiting for a decision on her spouse visa.

I think am unlucky. Am the one who paid and work for the NHS but I doubt I qualify, for one she isn’t here yet, and secondly it’s saying something about Tier 2 visa. Which is not what I have.

Re: Living In The Uk-life Of An Immigrant (part 2) by semmyk(m): 11:30pm On Apr 04, 2022
Beware of SA (South Africa, Southie...). It's a 50:50. The rate at which things are going, calls for concern. Let's leave it unpacked for now!
PS: I can't speak for Mauritius or Seychelles.

Look at Mauritius, Seychelles, SOUTH Africa or Indonesia

I never thought I would say this but I can’t wait to retire and move to Nigeria. I never had that mentality until I visited and thought wow we are slaving here in the UK. If you have your money, you have a property in Nigeria then am pretty sure you are better off after slaving here working for many years, my pension years would be spent in Nigeria in Jesus name!

1. This is not a job, its a voluntary service

2. I was voted to moderate the section, thosedays to be a mod nairalanders have to vote for you, couple of potential mods will be selected and voted for, one with highest vote becomes a mod.

3. I don't have direct contact to Seun and i don't think any mod does, we contact him the same way other nairalanders do.

I see. The reason why I thought it was a job is because I remembered there was once an advertisement for the position of a moderator.

I bet if voting is still the way to become a moderator, a lot of your "enemies" wouldn't allow you to win it grin

Disclaimer first, I’m just speaking from acquired knowledge. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Yes, you can buy a house.

Mortgage end age is 65-80. Most lenders cap at 70-75, so you’ll have about 25years to pay back which is good.

Lenders will give you around 4.5 of your annual salary, your expected mortgage is dependent on if your £1,600 is before or after tax… so you can just do the calculations yourself.

You don’t need to use the full £20k on deposit, your deposit will probably be £10k… you can use the remaining £10k on renovations and upgrades as you’ll most likely buy a “not-so-new” house.

You just gave me hope
Thank you ��

You have to register for the Govt Gateway first. Use this link.
https://www.access.service.gov.uk/registration/email

Note that registering as a sole trader means signing up to pay tax under self-assessment.

After registering, you log in to the Govt Gateway and sign up for the self-assessment as a sole trader and all that.
You don't have to be a citizen, and you don't need someone to do it for you. However, depending on the amount and complexity of what you are going to file, you may need an accountant, and if you hire one, they can get the registration sorted for you as part of their fee.
