My visa application is Tier 1 psw 50k
For refusal reason 1), the contract I submitted to HomeOffice when applying the visa, is the contract between my company XXX and company AAA. The contract did not have third party's email and landline because all contracts in Company AAA is in the same format without any contact details. Because the contract is a legal document in effect before my visa application, I can not make any amendment on it, or it will be a 'false' paper. However, as Home Office requested, I have wrote/attached AAA contact persons' landline, email to the contract now, and plan to use it as one piece of evidence.
For refusal reason 2), I have to admit that I neglect that fact that my name should be included in a business advertisement, though this ad shows my mobile phone, my address, my company AAA's name, so it is apparently my ad. However, as Home Office requested, I have revised the ad so that it includes my name, and plan to use the revised ad as one piece of evidence.
Other things I have to make it clear is that actually the contract between my company XXX and AAA has changed after my submitted my visa application. Due to the concern over my visa status, AAA insisted to do another contract with me through an agency BBB. So now the contract is between me and BBB, BBB and AAA. Each time AAA pays BBB, then BBB pays me. I am very concerned that this would make the case complicated, so I asked AAA's boss write a statement to explain this situation clearly, it is on AAA's company stationery and signed by AAA's boss. I plan to use it as evidence too.
Other evidence I have are:
Business bankstatement, which includes BBB's pay-in, pay-out to the accoutant, and other tranctions.
Contract between my company XXX and the accountant.
Another business contract I have with another client.
Another Ad with my name and all my company details.
Yes, because I am now preparing a witness statement and choosed oral hearing, I need some professional comment on
1) how to structure the witness statement, what should be the key points?
2) on what reason should I say the refusal decision is incorrect, I heard about the evidence flexibility policy, could I use it to defend for myself? The case worker did not contact me or request any additional information from me before the refusal decision is made.
3) Is my evidence enough? If not, what would you suggest?
4) how much possibility is it for the appeal to be allowed? depending on your judgement?
if i try to find a solicitor to draft the witness statement for me, how much will it cost?
do you know any LLC or any legal professional to recommend?
