Many thanks. I shall check the reference govt page. However, in the above answer you state " provided you do have"-- do you really mean do not have any other absences??
Also, what is the definition of an absence in this instance? I have already stated that I have been working outside the UK for last several yrs but have not been gone for longer than under 90 days at any one time.
I await your kind response. I will release the funds. If I require any further legal advise are you interested in assistaing me?
Yes, I meant " do not have" Sorry.
There is a presumption that any absences from the UK are to be regarded as absences from the UK for these purposes. If you have not spent any more than 90 days in any one year outisde the UK then you will be fine.
Trust this clarifies, please click accept.
