    Self-Employed Application 2018

    For years of experience, it's stated within 5 years preceding the application till the time decision is made, so if the time taken for decision to be made (from time of application)is a year, it'll add another year to years of experience?

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    So only tax returns with application? Btw, I just checked my tax returns for past few years, one of the years in the 5 years I'm claiming for was an amended return(2016) with penalty . Do you think that'll be a problem?

    Can anyone advise on how many months' bank statement are we expected to include? And do we include those together with the application or only when asked?

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Will the fact that one owns a business play a part in determining the eligibility? I mean, one who owns a business vs one who does freelance work? Will they favour business over freelance work since that will generate employment for others?

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Checked with some consultants here today, but none of them handles self employed applications. So I guess I'm on my own here.

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Yeah I'll do that first. You mean if I'm categorised as SE in my home country, then it's ok? Shouldn't I fit into the SE spectrum in Canada itself? Sorry for the endless questions. Pls bear with me

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    What is my status then I wonder? And besides teaching in school, I give private lessons at students' homes, but more to unfortunate students, like autistic, children with single mums, so I don't take any payment from these private students, so in that sense, can't say I'm contributing...

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    The school pays me monthly based on the number of students I have, there's no fixed pay, I'm paid on commission basis, 60/40, no employee benefits like contribution to employees funds etc. And it's on a clause in the contract between me and the school that says I'm an independent contractor.

    Immigrating as Self-Employed, is there a specification on supporting documents?

    Hi I'm a music teacher. Was planning to submit soon, but just read someone's post on another thread,that one has to be world class and self employed? He posted some rejection cases, after reading, getting quite worried here. Anyone been asked for interview? He posted that he just went for interview.

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Oh dear. I'm a music teacher, can't say I'm world class, you mean we need to fulfill both criteria? Self employed experience and world class? I read some of the rejected cases. And what if my experience is based on teaching in this music school for 8 years? Then it's not considered self...

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    I'm in the midst of gathering documents. As I'm a music teacher, my clients are students. Any thoughts on how I can prove work experience if payments are made with cash? Don't think reference letters would hold much weight. Would appreciate some advice. Thanks

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Actually I was also thinking along the line of putting in the awarding body's statement of equivalency. I suppose that's the best I can do. Going in with a lot of doubts, but had some bad experiences with consultants. They were so positive and optimistic to get started with the application...

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    Again, thanks in advance for your time and advice, cos I actually just finished express entry application for my 25 year old son, he's going in as auditor, but still waiting for the process. Since applying for parents and grandparents visa is so difficult, I thought I'll just try to apply in my...

    Self-Employed Application 2018

    I'm afraid the only qualifications I have are all music professional ones. And my lessons were conducted as individual lessons, cos it's a piano performance exam. But I would say, to get from piano grade 1 to the level that I'm at, it would normally take 14-15 years in all, depending on...
