Lets take another look thoroughly. Give the wages figures without bonuses and also give the bonuses figures without basic pay during the last 12 months. Also what is your current annual basic wages?
Great. Under category A you will be failed:
Dangerous manoeuvre. I think the correct advice you have already received which exactly matches with this success experience now might put your mind on ease.

Thought I’d share this update I’ve received from someone on another forum who has had this problem and got their visa:
Here it is:
‘Just apply category B and mention in your cover letter that you took unpaid leave in the month of August and submit 12 .months banks statements and payslips. Honestly don't stress about it like I did. I had taken 6 weeks off! Are you on a salaried employement? I know category B is for employement less than 6 months but you can just explain again in the covering letter you have applied via category B to supply 12 months of bank statements and payslips because of the month off you had. Good luck! You'll be fine! I got approved and honestly I didn't even apply under the right category. I only found out after applying I should of done it under category B but I applied under category A. Just wanted 5o give you the advice I got given to stay on the safe side. Submit 12 months.’
Hope this helps other forum members!
