    You should have some bank statements. Spending 2 month salary on 4 days is also suspicious (and I would add: they help you not to overspending). – Giacomo Catenazzi Feb 7 '19 at 14:36

    I don't understand why starting your business in January 2018 would make you unable to show your income. – Chris H Feb 7 '19 at 14:36
  • Chris H: My previous ITR show only income till March 2018. How else can I show income for past 9months. Can CA have any solution? – Abhishek Feb 7 '19 at 14:55

    Honestly, though, I don't understand your visit plan. What are you planning on doing that will cost £3160 for just four days? That's a huge amount of money, especially to somebody who only claims to earn £1700 per month. You could probably stay in the UK for a month with that much money. – David Richerby Feb 7 '19 at 15:51

    @Abhishek Well, the visa officer clearly thought you intended to spend all of that money in four days in the UK. When you reapply, you need to make it clear how much you estimate you'll spend during your four days in the UK. – David Richerby Feb 7 '19 at 16:29

The reason you have been refused, and what you can do to improve it are clearly stated in the refusal notice.

You have not provided any documentation that backs up your claim of income. You need to provide such documents. The obvious way to do it is to provide bank statements, preferably both for you and your company, showing your claimed income going out from your company and going in to your personal account. Documentation showing that the company is getting real income from outside sources would also help. These statements need to cover a substantial period of time, such as the last six months.

You also need to provide details of your expenditures, as stated in the refusal notice. Not providing these when you were asked to do so virtually guarantees rejection of the application.

  • Sometimes getting a chartered accountant to prepare certified documents showing an accurate financial picture is helpful in such situations. That said a business that started just last year doesn’t give a lot of confidence. – user 56513 Feb 7 '19 at 15:38
