Unfortunately, if you did not obtain an accession workers card you cannot include the period from 2012 to 1st January 2014 towards your continuous period of 5 years. Please if you have any further question I am happy to answer them. My aim is to answer all your questions so that you can rate me 5-stars at the top right hand of your screen

Thank you very much, so I can apply after 01/01/2019 on the base 5 years in the country regardless I been here longer since 08/2012. So when I apply do you think it will be good to include all the years I been in the country and all the pay slips etc. I have and actually I been paid taxes and obviously I have a NIN since 10/2012.
Thank you in advance!

You would need to only include periods from 1st January 2014.
