I find myself in a tricky situation and looking for some help and advice on my particular case.
I got my initial Tier 1 (G) visa starting from the 15th of Feb 2010 (swtiched from PSW which was due to expire on the 30th of March 2010)
The Tier 1 (G) expires on the 15th of Feb 2013 and I am perfectly eligble for extention barring one problem.
I only started to hv £900 from the 19th of Nov 2012 leavign me few days short even if I apply on the 15th Feb 2013 which is the last day my visa is valid till
But I would like to leave the country in Jan 2013 and come back .
1 . is it likely to cause any problem if I return to UK on -lets say 14th Feb 2013 to extend my Tier (G)
(I suspect I will hv some problems at the airport)
2. also from 15th Feb 2010 to till I have only been away from the country for 33 days.so when would I hv satisfied the 5 years needed for ILR ?
3. How do I get around my maintenance issue which is 4 days short. (I hv good income and been employed throughout my visa - no problms there)
and given all these dates and my situation can you advice me on what is best course of action I can take and options available to me ?
Thanks fo reading and kindly expect some advice and guidance.

I also hv the option to switch to Tier 2 as my employer is a trusted sponsor and will be more than happy to do so - but I dont like to waste the Tier 1 extention opportunity as I can use Tier 2 to make up for any absence to complete 5 yrs.
1.is maintenance requirements a must for Tier 2 as well ?
2.how do they calculate 5 yrs for ILR when people go out of the country once they hv been given visa when they were inside UK.
much appreciate any replies

Given my Tier 1 (G) visa expires on the 15th Feb 2013 - what is the latest date I can come to UK without encountering problems ?
I would like to know any one who has had issues when coming to the UK with only few days left in their VISA - using common sense I would imagine
there should not be a legal grounds to deny entry even if I arrive on the 14th Feb 2012 ?

I am in bit of a trouble with maintenace for my Tier 1 (G) extension which is valid till 15th Feb 2013.
I hv started maintainign funds from 19th Nov 2012
so calculating the calandar days
19/11/2012 - 30/11/2012 = 12 days
1/12/2012 - 31/12/2012 = 31 days
1/1/2013 - 31/1/2012 = 31 days
1/2/2013 - 15/02/2013 = 15 days
Total = 89 days
so given I apply on the 15th Feb 2013 - I will be short of one day
how likely that my extention is refused based on previous experriences the forum members know of ?
and is there anything I can do to get around this.
