Well it seems to me that unless you are a non-salaried worker, you will need to rely on Category B, which is your earning over the 12 months preceding the application.

Otherwise, if you are non-salaried, it will be the average weekly earning over 26 weeks multiply by 52, or total earning over 26 weeks divide by 6 and multiply by 12.

If your pay is directly related to the number of hours you work, you are non-salaried. If you get paid a set salary and then get paid additionally for hours worked over the minimum (or if you don't get paid more for working more hours), you are salaried. These definitions having nothing to do with immigration...

Thanks physicskate for your kind reply..

From this definition i am non-salaried employ. just one last simple question is, where do i tick in the visa application form as i can not see non-salaried in options? Visa application shot and my employment history given in earlier posts. i am with the same employer since 3 years.

There is nothing to tick to confirm non salaried employment. Just make it explicit in the 'additional information' box at the end of the form and perhaps on your supporting letter.

I was in non salaried employment when I sponsored my husband - to ensure that was clear I also created a spreadsheet detailing the gross and net pay I received each week and calculated my average pay across the 6 months to evidence that I met the annual amount required. This is not necessary but it gave me peace of mind that it was explicit.

There is a different evidential burden for Cat A salaried and Cat A non - salaried.

That distinction may not be obvious to an ECO, especially if the non salaried worker receivrd pay on a monthly basis.

Therefore I beg to disagree with those that have suggested that Cat A salaried and CAT A non salaried is a distinction without substance .
