I am in the process of filling out VAF4A appendix 2 and I am stuck on part 3A.

I started my position on 22/04/2015 with Company A who had prior to this been acquired by Company B. In January 2016 we signed new terms and conditions that transfer our employment effective from 01/04/2016 to Company B. The new contracts specifically mention that my continuous service began on 22/04/2016 and that I retain the same position/salary and work in the same location.

I now get paid by company B, but company A has been the one to issue all the letters for my past payslips and contract. I still only deal directly with Company A. I have written a letter explaining all of this, but what do I use as my current employer in section 3A. Do I list Company B as my employer or Company A.

Please help me understand if there are any rules or guidelines concerning acquisitions.

Thanks

It should be company B, but make sure you attach an official letter from A or B setting out the process of acquisition, and that your employment has continued uninterrupted.

I have letters from both stating this, and I am including both terms and conditions, I have also been advised to include the 12 months of statements and payslips so it is at the ECO's discretion. I am including the following supporting documents for the financial requirement, is there anything you think should be added?

  • Letter from myself explaining employment
  • Form VAF4A - Appendix 2
  • Company B terms and condition
  • Letter from Company B discussing the acquisition
  • Company A terms and conditions + letter confirming authenticity and stating I retain my position
  • Letter from Company A discussing the acquisition
  • 6 month payslips + letter confirming them 04/15 - 09/15
  • 6 month payslips + letter confirming them 10/15- 03/16
  • Bank Statements covering the dates specified
