He has been reading along and is going to register within the next few days so he can join the conversation. I just don't know much about it and would feel more comfortable if he'd explain that part. Thank you !! :)

Hello people.. 1st of all MANY thanks for all the help/advise so far, as Amy said it really is a massive help. Ive just sent off to renew my passport to go visit Amy in a few weeks time  thanks to the help & information from here  ;D So our new plan is i go over to visit in a few weeks time, then go back end of October/early November get married, then Amy applies for the Spouse visa to come live with me in the UK (sounds so simple lol) @KFdancer any advice on what kind of info Amy will need from me concerning my employment? im guessing anything needed will be easily accessible from my boss, my accountant or bank?

Hey  8)

Are you registered as a sole trader, director of a limited company, etc?  Which one?   ;D

And what is your financial year?

If you are a sole trader, your tax year should be April 6th to April 5th, same as everyone else.

If you were a director of a limited company, your tax year would be the accounting year of the company, as listed on your CT600 form.

Have a bit of a read of these links for all the finer details of your category but you are looking at providing ALL of the following evidence.

Quote
7. In respect of self-employment in the UK as a partner, as a sole trader or in a franchise all of the following must be provided:
(a) Evidence of the amount of tax payable, paid and unpaid for the last full financial year.
(b) The following documents for the last full financial year, or for the last two such years (where those documents show the necessary level of gross profit as an average of those two years):
(i) annual self-assessment tax return to HMRC (a copy or print-out); and
(ii) Statement of Account (SA300 or SA302).
(c) Proof of registration with HMRC as self-employed if available.
(d) Each partner’s Unique Tax Reference Number (UTR) and/or the UTR of the partnership or business.
(e) Where the person holds or held a separate business bank account(s), bank statements for the same 12-month period as the tax return(s).
(f) personal bank statements for the same 12-month period as the tax return(s) showing that the income from self-employment has been paid into an account in the name of the person or in the name of the person and their partner jointly.
(g) Evidence of ongoing self-employment through the provision of at least one of the following: a bank statement dated no more than three months earlier than the date of application showing transactions relating to ongoing trading, or evidence dated no more than three months earlier than the date of application of the renewal of a licence to trade or of ongoing payment of business rates, business-related insurance premiums, employer National Insurance contributions or franchise payments to the parent company.
(h) One of the following documents must also be submitted:
(i) (aa) If the business is required to produce annual audited accounts, such accounts for the last full financial year; or
(bb) If the business is not required to produce annual audited accounts, unaudited accounts for the last full financial year and an accountant’s certificate of confirmation, from an accountant who is a member of a UK Recognised Supervisory Body (as defined in the Companies Act 2006) or who is a member of the Institute of Financial Accountants;
(ii) A certificate of VAT registration and the VAT return for the last full financial year (a copy or print-out) confirming the VAT registration number, if turnover is in excess of £79,000 or was in excess of the threshold which applied during the last full financial year;
(iii) Evidence to show appropriate planning permission or local planning authority consent is held to operate the type/class of business at the trading address (where this is a local authority requirement); or
(iv) A franchise agreement signed by both parties.
(i) The document referred to in paragraph 7(h)(iv) must be provided if the organisation is a franchise.

What this means, is that everything you submit will be based on April 6, 2017 until April 5, 2018.  If you have not yet completed your taxes for this year yet (which I imagine is unlikely), PLEASE work with a good accountant and us to ensure your tax return reflects that you will make the required amount necessary to sponsor Amy and her children.  If an error is made (to save on tax), you will have to wait until your accounts from April 6, 2018 to April 5, 2019 are complete.
