Hello all!

This thread has been created for everyone to share their visa experience. It would be a great knowledge base for those who are currently going through the process or plan to in the future.

If you could please share with us details such as;

*Documents you provided.
*How long they took to decide your case.
*Whether they refuse/accepted your application.
*If refused, what did they refuse you on?

It would ease the worries and stresses of many.

Thank you :happy:

Hiya Kelly

Go to "Search Form" at the top of the page and then scroll down that page and you will see "search in forum". In that list and you will find the visa section.

From what I understand, a P60 is only issued if you have worked and paid tax on income. If she is being paid cash and tax is being taken off then she should be given a P60.

You said she could get pay slips but I dont know why she would get a pay slip and still not have the tax calculated. The way I understood it worked is that even if you only work a few hours you're still paying tax on it and over the course of the yr you submit a tax return and will get it back if over the FULL year you were under the tax bracket and tax exempt.

you might need to call the UK revenue office and ask these questions...I think you can do that without giving too much personal info.

If she is working PAYE but just doesn't earn enough to pay tax then she will get a P60. Having said that if she is receiving ESA then she shouldn't be working or the ESA she wouldn't be entitled to...!!!

She should get a P60 at the end of each tax year if she is working, even if she doesn't pay tax.

I thought you couldn't work and claim ESA maybe I'm wrong?

If you start working full-time, your ESA will stop. However the law allows you to claim ESA and do some types of ‘exempt work’ such as:

  • Being a councillor.
  • Doing domestic tasks in your home.
  • Caring for a close relative.
  • Volunteering.
  • Working while receiving assistance as a self employed person from the Government’s test trading scheme.
You can also take up certain work and still get full ESA. This is called ‘permitted work’.

Permitted work

Permitted work allows you to do some paid work and still get your full ESA (and housing/council tax benefit). Even though it won’t affect your benefit you should tell the DWP as soon as possible if you do any work.

There are different types of permitted work:

  • Work done as part of a hospital treatment programme carried out under medical supervision for earnings which do not exceed £101 a week for an unlimited period.
  • ‘Permitted work lower limit’ - this is any work undertaken for no more than £20 a week for an unlimited period.
  • ‘Supported permitted work’ for earnings which do not exceed £101 a week for an indefinite period - supported work means work that is supervised by someone employed by a public or local authority or voluntary organisation whose job it is to arrange work for people with disabilities e.g. Hertfordshire County Council’s Work Solutions.
  • ‘Permitted work higher limit’ - this is work of less than 16 hours a week, with earnings which do not exceed £101 per week for up to a maximum of 52 weeks. Subsequent periods of work are allowed but there must usually be a gap of at least 52 weeks between periods of working. However, if you are in the support group for ESA you can do this work for an indefinite period.
Earnings from permitted work described above will not affect either type of ESA and are also disregarded for housing and council tax benefit.

The permitted work rules will continue to apply to ESA following the introduction of universal credit.

Will I be worse off if I come off ESA to try work?

If you are thinking of returning to work you may be entitled to additional benefits such as the return to work credit (up until October 2013) and working tax credit (up until the introduction of universal credit). For more information on these and other benefits that you may be able to claim click here.

I stand corrected... :)

Her employer can do it, however it's just as easy for her to ring up the revenue herself and request one.
