This clears it up. I will have to request a new letter although it's such a pain as I'm away from March 1 to March 8 so I can't request it until I am back.seagul wrote: ↑Wed Feb 12, 2020 5:03 amYour employer letter is clearly looking not appropriate which even can confuse the caseworker because it is not clearly indicating your part time income which actually you are doing. Also remember that it can be issued by any competent person in your organisation even your line manager to who you can easily address your concern. If still they couldnt determine your part time income then simply they can give the total of last 6 or 12 months wages.
If you are applying in mid march then you can use your payslips from september 2019 to February 2020 (assuming by 28th February you will have completed at least 6 months with present employer) because your latest payslip dated on 28th February will be not older than 28 days. Also keep in mind that your employer letter should also be not older than 28 days or be dated after the date of application.
Thanks for clearing the payslips query up as I thought it had to be six months to the day from when I received my first payslip on 30 Sep 2019.
How about the overtime though? If my salary is 14k per year and I've been doing overtime for the past 6 months to earn at least 1,550, do I meet the financial requirement? Somebody said...
"They will take the lowest payslip from the 6 months and multiply it by 12 to get your total annual salary. So, they will use:
£1620 x 12 = £19,440
HOWEVER, overtime can only count towards PREVIOUS income and cannot count towards your future income, which must be at least £18,600 each year.
So unless your employer can guarantee in writing that you will earn at least £383.33 in overtime every single month in the future (making each payslip at least £1550), only your salary of £14,000 can be considered for the visa.
Which means that unless you can prove you will earn at least £18,600 between March 2020 and March 2021, and between March 2021 and March 2022, and so on, you will not qualify for the visa.
Is this true? I don't meet the requirement?
