Earnings in Multiple countries

Post by rajesh9pl » Mon Apr 28, 2008 4:49 pm

Case work guide on PE suggests Pro-rata: against the country where the applicant has spent the longest period, on a pro-rata basis.
What if exactly 6 months in each country?
Rule is: If the situation should arise where the applicant has worked for exactly six months in each country consecutively, to total twelve months, then the earnings should still be calculated on a pro rata basis for both amounts. The income that benefits the applicant most should be the figure that is considered.

I fall into 6 months each category.

Questions:
1. Are above rules still hold true? Any link to substantiate it?
2. How to select the Band? Coversion, pro-rata and uplift?

Thanks,
Rajesh.

No, that guidance is out of date. Basically, they just add the earnings together (after uplifting where appropriate). Stick the figures into the calculator and it works it out for you.

If you are applying for HSMP, follow the HSMP guidelines: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/worki ... tinghsmp1/

If you are applying for Tier 1, follow the Tier 1 guidelines: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/worki ... /applying/

How you calculate your income will depend on the criteria defined in the scheme you wish to apply under ! Read through the "appropriate" guidance notes carefully :wink:.

Hi all,
I have a complicated case with multiple earnings....

In the past 12 months, i have been in UK for 8 months(on and off) and 4 months in India.

Now during my stay of 4 months in India, i get my indian salary alone.

But during my stay in UK, i get full Indian salary + UK allowance also....


What should i do in this case....

Also, i used to travel back to India from UK on a mid of the months.... So some months i get prorated salary/allowance in UK and full salary in India....

Please some one help me in this case

Cheers
Arun

My forumula of calculation is:

Sum of (Earning * Curreny coversion rate * Uplift factor) at all the locations.

Home Office wants earnings (Salary/Wages) and it proof. All the components paid should be part of your salary slip and data should match with Bank Statement and Tax Statement (if you sending this as well).

If someone has other understanding then please share.

Thanks.

I second your understanding…

But the problem comes in selecting your earning country for uplift….

The rule says that “The country in which the applicant has been working, rather than their nationality, determines the income bands against which the earnings will be assessed.â€

8 vs 4, 8 is clearly strongest. Since you worked majority of times in UK, you should choose UK band for judging your Earnings points.

Had it been 6 Vs 6 then the band which benefits you should have been chosen.

Below is the Caseworkers guidelines on Past Earnings -
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.

Some might say its old and out dated but this rule will always be valid, as its simple and logical.

PS - No intention to debate my opinion.

Hi rajesh,
The "Tier 1 (General) of the points-based system Policy guidance" book says the below


73. The Assessing Officer will only consider actual earnings made.
Earnings claimed will not be considered on a pro rata basis
under any circumstances


So what to say about this...

Cheers
Arun

Question was on choosing Band. Not on calculating Total earnings.

8 for UK band.

Total earnings formula = Sum of (Earning x Conversion Rate to GBP x applicable upflit ratio).

OK?

Cheers!
