earnings in different countries, prorata for tier1?

Post by hussainkothari » Thu Apr 10, 2008 10:33 pm

Hi,

I am on WP in UK and want to apply for Tier1. I have earned in more than 1 country in the last 12 months.

First, is it correct to refer to the HSMP pdf for previousearnings for Tier1?
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... iew=Binary

In case it is, it has been mentioned that -

If the applicant has lived and worked in more than one country during the past fifteen months, the caseworker will normally assess the total income over the total period being claimed up to a maximum of twelve months, against the country where the applicant has spent the longest period, on a pro-rata basis.
....
This is the only occasion where we can pro-rata an applicant’s earnings.


Contrary to this, the Tier1 guidance notes mention -
73. The Assessing Officer will only consider actual earnings made.
Earnings claimed will not be considered on a pro rata basis
under any circumstances.



Would any one know the correct interpretation of this?

Thanks all.

Hi,

you need to claim points for earnings in both countries. Enter them as separate line items in the previous earnings and use conversion and upliftment rates accordingly. The total earnings from both sources (2 countries) shall be added up and considered for points. The self assessment tool shall help you further.

http://www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk/pointscalculator

Note that unlike HSMP, earnings shall not be prorated.

This is the mentioned rule at http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/polic ... appendixa/

23. Where the previous earnings claimed are in different currencies, any foreign currencies will be converted and multiplied before being added together, and then added to any UK earnings, to give a total amount.

Thanks kaushal! This information is helpful.
So the HSMP guidance notes in not to be considered for Tier1. Do you know where I can find guidance notes for Tier1?

Others, any more/different information.

they do not have caseworkers guidance for tier 1. But you can use immigration laws and apendices for tier 1 at following links.

Yeah Even I am confused with that...in the last 12 months I worked for 8 months in India and last four months I was in Australia payrolls. Now I can see in the guidance rules update that

73. The Assessing Officer will only consider actual earnings made.

Earnings claimed will not be considered on a pro rata basis
under any circumstances.


Does that mean I don't qualify for the Tier 1. Can anyone plaese clarify on this please...

Hi kaarthyus,

In your case you have to show both the employments -

Show india emp for 8 months, convet that into GBP and apply the uplift ratio.

Do the same for the australia earnings for the 4 months.

Add them together and check how many points you can make.


This method of Tier1 is different from HSMP where you would condsider only the indian salary and pro rate it for 12 months.
