Anyone from TCS got HSMP with Indian Salary and UK allowance

Post by cheers2boss » Sat Feb 09, 2008 10:21 pm

Hi,

Need help from any one........
Is there anyone from TCS deputed to UK and got HSMP approval by showing Indian salary plus UK allowance for a period of 12 months?

Employer is refusing to provide original P60 or atleast attest print out (taken on A4 paper) of P60. Please guide me what I can do to overcome this, got stuck at original P60?

I have even approached local HMRC tax office and even they refused to attest saying P60 is issued by employer only.

Thank you

Nobody can refuse to attest the P60.

I wonder if you even tried talking to the HR/Finance people on this. In most cases employee fear revealing their intentions to the company's HR/Finance and hence try to find out ways other than getting the documents stamped from the company

hi applyhsmp,

I went personally to my Finance head 2 days ago in London and he clearly refused to provide a original hardcopy and also refused to attest the same with his signature/company stamp. Then I revealed to him in a requesting manner that I am planning to apply for HSMP and I need one. He in turn said that normal print out is ok and also said that many people within the company are applying for hsmp and immigration officers are considering the same. So he also advised me to apply just with normal printout on a A4 white paper. I am really concerned about this. What should I do?

Legally in this country (in UK) no employer could deprive it's employee of P60 form. So in my opinion remain adamant on getting your P60 form from your employer or else warn your employer that you are intending on notifying Inland Revenue about this issue; sooner or later your employer would bogg down.

As per UK law, employer has to provide signed pay slips of UK.

They can refuse to sign the Indian income slips.

I also work for an Indian MNC, they provided me signed pay slips, without even asking for the purpose

Hmm..I have lot of friends in this firm and even in a well known Telecom firm who is sending Indians to UK on "Deputation"...If u look in this Forum, you will find similar cases of employer not giving Salary Slips/P60...The only way out to is to talk to them and get it...As HSMP(Tier 1 )is getting very strict about rules..One of my friends who was in a similar situation had called up HSMP help line and was told that ,they have come across such situations often(Indian employers not providing Sal slips/P60)..It was mentione that it was ILLEGAL..FOr hSMP u need payslips and P60 and soon as you show they u r on deputaions from such firms TC*,MB*,IT*,they will verify for such details..

has anyone tried services like http://www.payslipsp60.co.uk/
am not sure about the legality of these but for sure better than normal A4 sheet P60. As details remain authentic i see no harm in such services

Isnt your P60 useless unless you apply for the 12 month period between April - March ? Use your bank statements and payslips.

Irrespective of whether you apply for April to March or any othr period, you have to show your P60. To show that u pay tax, HO will not issue u a visa unless they r convinced u r tax paying citizen.

I got my Tier 1 recently with same situation as yours, even though i dont work for TCS, i work for a company who gives 2 salary(india+UK) and no P60. I just showed my payslip and bank statement.

Moreover, i dont undertstand y u need to show P60. It wont cover your 12 months and it is pretty easy to get bank statement instead of a P60 in these companies.

Hi

Have you got thru the process of applying by now?

In any case - I though I'll share my experience. I was in a similar situation as you about a year back. I was working in TCS in Paris and wanted to apply for the HSMP. There I was getting an onsite 'allowance' and not Salary. So I couldn't get a Payslip to show my onsite earnings.

However, I discovered that with my Indian Salary component itself I qualified for HSMP and I applied. I have since got my HSMP and moved to the UK ( close to a year back) and now working with a different Indian Company.

Since my stay in France was about 6 months only, I could apply for it under the India Band ( Band D) after a month of being in India.

I got my print out of Payslips of Indian Salary attested by HR and submitted my Bank statement also for claiming points under 'Previous Earnings'.

Maybe its worth examining if you qualify with your Indian Salary alone.

Cheers
V.

Hello cheers2boss,
Have you got HSMP from TCS?

What happened to your TCS-WP? What will happen when your TCS-WP expires? Will they take your passport for WP renewal? have you disclosed that you got your HSMP? IS it legal to apply for Tier1 while on TCS-WP in TCS?
Can you pls answer my questions if possible?

I am in the same situation now.... I got Tier1 already upto2011. Now, my TCS-WP is going to expire. Shall I disclose to HR? I want to continue in TCS for sometime as the outside market is very bad. Please suggest something?

Please mail me if possible.. tcswp.116@googlemail.com

Thanks,
sateesh

Hello,
My case if little tricky.
I got HSMOP approval letter(old procedure) while I was in India.
I got on-site opportunity at the same time.
I broght that letter from there to here. I applied toer 1 from here with the already approved letter. SO, I just need to submit my maintenance fund proof(bank stmt). Thats it. I got Tier1 for 3 yrs.

I think your case if different. You want to apply Tier1 from UK.

So, keep posting, someone in your situation might reply.

But, at the same time I want to ask you abt my situation.
Will TCS create any problem for us if we get Tier1?

Thanks!!!!
