    Self-employed Permitted Work - averaging earnings?

    Hello

    I've filled in a Permitted Work form, several months ago, but I still have not had a letter back. I've rung up about this and apparently I'm meant to get one saying that my PW has been approved. No idea when I'll get this, though, so I asked them to read me the contents of this letter over the phone.

    Firstly, I am a bit surprised that they have classed my earnings as fitting into the PW higher earnings limit. I have read in several places there is scope for averaging earnings, when someone's earnings are not regular. If they had done this, I should have come under the lower limit rules.

    All the letter states is the standard stuff about working less than 16 hours, on average, and I'm not to earn more than £115.50 per week.

    The trouble with this, is that I now fall under the 52 week rule and because they have taken so long to decide upon my case, the deadline when I have to stop is fast approaching.

    Frankly, I'm thinking I may have to challenge this decision, but I'm worried that by the time they have reviewed this decision, if it goes against me, my 52 weeks will be up.

    Does anyone know who I need to speak to about this?
