£18,600 : Salaried or Non-Salaried ? Formula/Calculation ?

Post by Sb19 » Tue Feb 27, 2018 9:44 pm

Hi all Please can someone clarify the calculation for spouse visa application?

My payslip is weekly,
I'm planing to send payslips from week 1-week 47 so in total 47 payslips, my gross pay on week 47 is £17245, and taxable pay shows £16944 which has been reduced by Pension conts £301 that I'm not sure why. All these are showing on the payslip.

My question is, which of those two values will be counted?
And how the calculation is done ?
Can someone kindly clarify this? Will this be accepted ?

Thank you all

Base on knowledge gained from this forum.
1.if you've been in that job for a year then you can use cat B,reason being than you have varying income,to use cat b,you must have earned the money,which means 12 payslips & 12 bank statement.
To use cat b,your lowest income weekly or monthly payslip wouldn't matter,d most important thing is that you've earned 18600 or more.NOT LESS
2.if you've not spent up to a year in that job and you can't wait,then you can use cat A,to use catA,your salary or non salaried income must not fall short of 1550 in a month,if it falls short by just a pound,I'm telling you the ECO doesn't care,the application will be refused.
3.lastly,if your monthly income is flexible, the least will be used,meaning even the least must not be less than 1550,All these are gross income remember?
So the calculation will be
For cat A 1550 ×12=18600 calculated prospectively,6 payslips, 6bank statement
Cat B 1550 or varied above 1550×12=18600 or more.earned you already earned or spent it.12 payslips, 12 bank statements
Hope these information helps?
Pls note,my calculation is done in the best way you can understand it,there's a standard formula but this is a lay man's way of getting it clearer.
I'm sure the big bosses will chip in later.


Sorry

For the purpose of meeting financial requirement always the gross income before tax & other deductions including pension etc counts. But in your case if you don't have any other income/saving to cover the shortfall then you won't meet the requirement because you need to have been earning at least £18600 instead £17245. Furthermore, if you are working for your employer from at least 6 months & if getting paid weekly then 26 payslips need and the same duration of bank statements showing that credit transactions.

But 17245 it's for 47 weeks not 52 weeks (not one year).
Is that a problem ?

If you are working for same employer from 6 months then it's should be category A and if you are working on variable income then non-salaried person. If £17245 is for 47 weeks and if you gets variable income each month then I think you can meet the requirement but you have to convert weekly figures into months & year like:

17245/47×52= £19079

Don't attach excessive documents than required. If you are under category A then you will need 26 weeks payslips & bank statements.

I have been with the same employer more than 1 year, but I have worked full time since last year end of February (which is slightly less than a year as a full time). I have 4 weeks left to be 1 year.

So in my case is it better if I send the whole 47payslips or the latest 26 payslips and may salaries changes every week slightly (not the same amount every week).

Many thanks

Your post has been moved to the correct sub-forum Immigration for Family members, as your post doesn't appear to be either a comment or a complaint :idea:

You only need to attach 26 weeks/6 months payslips if working for your present employer from last 6 months. If you earning variable income each week then you will be under non-salaried person and have to convert weekly into monthly & yearly figures like:

£17493/48×52= £18950.75 per annum

Based on above figure you meet requirements but don't try to attach unneccessarily additional documents.

hello dear, just wanted to ask you, did you get your visa? i had mine refuse a month ago :( despite my husband earns 18,700 pa on salaried employment, he gets 1,558.33 monthly but 31 pounds are taken from his pension deductions, so after this is 1,527.33 that is the taxable pay. i think ECO took into account this figure after pension was deducted instead of his gross salary and we got rejected just for this reason :(
