The Guidance makes only the most cursory consideration of ‘significant breaks’ merely paraphrasing para. 29 and referring to its significance for the Third Automatic Overseas Test796
and the Third Automatic UK Test797
again using the phrase ‘Full-Time Work’.798
“What is a significant break from overseas work/work in the UK?
…You will have a significant break from UK work if at least 31 days go by and not one of those days is a day on which you:
•work for more than three hours in the UK, or
•would have worked for more than three hours in the UK, but you do not do so because you are on annual leave, sick leave or parenting leave.
