Default ILR Set (M) - Director of non-UK Limited Company

Good Afternoon,

My wife is close to completing the 5 year route of FLR (M) and we are looking to apply for ILR Set (M).

We took a year out in Canada (most of 2019) to have our first child and during this time my income was from a ltd company I set up.

I have read the entire 'Immigration Rules Appendix FM-SE: family members specified evidence' and I cannot find any mention of dividend income from an non-UK based limited company. It only mentions UK based limited companies.

Does this mean any dividends from an non-UK based company received are not accepted as evidence?

I note that Appendix FM-SE accepts evidence for overseas employment and overseas self-employment.

If this is the case can I simply be an employee of the company, even though I am the only shareholder/director?

Or can I declare this income as self-employment?

Many Thanks

You are correct in that neither Appendix FM-SE nor Appendix FM 1.7 refers to how to meet the financial requirements as a director/employee of a non UK specified limited company.

As such I would get the advise of an immigration lawyer since this area is extremely complicated even in the case of being an employee/director of a UK specified limited company! The amount of documentation needed to prove income is substantial.

How long has this Canadian limited company been in business.

Presumably since you have been out of the UK for most of 2019 you have no income from the UK?

On another note, you might want to take some advice as to you being eligible for ILR since you have spent most of 2019 in Canada.
