I am fully understand as what op is asking. Can't you see that op is earning £30k which alone is more than enough with less paper work involved which in result keep the case straight.ariamus wrote: ↑Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:54 pmI think Seagul misunderstood your/my previous posts. My view is you only apply via Category A and rely on your salary only, as it is well beyond the required £18,600
As an aside to alleviate your concerns about lack of savings in your account to which you receive your salary, you would add a separate statement to show your savings account and refer to this in your covering letter.
If you read Example A under Category A, I think this mirrors your situation. Therefore they would use your salary amount before the increase. Now unless that salary was less then £18,600, I believe you should use Category A.
However, perhaps an expert can confirm as I am certainly not a professional or expert.
The reason of advice not to show saving is because it can confuse to caseworker who by mistake can consider only to savings in refusing the visa. A lot members are facing that. Therefore, keeping the case more straightforward is always wise but no harm in trying mentioning & combining the savings with excessively sufficient amount of earnings.ariamus wrote: ↑Fri Feb 08, 2019 10:31 pmTheir salary is ample, that is not the point in question.
kc90 is concerned about lack of savings in the salary payment account. This is not an issue as they earn well over the £18,600 and there is no requirement to have any amount of savings however to put their mind at ease, the suggestion is to include a savings statement and a note of this in the covering letter.
I doubt one extra paper statement is going to result in confusion.
