Past Earnings Doubt

Post by sojan » Tue Jun 10, 2008 2:27 pm

Thanks for this wonderful forum.
I'm planning of applying for Tier1 Visa, but
I've a special circumstance whereby, i'm currently working in the UK, as part of onsite assignment.
My company pays per diem in the UK and salary in India. So my salary slip is of India, but with perdiem mentioned in INR.
This perdiem is paid to a GBP account and hence in salary slip its added and then deducted, thus making net money as my Indian salary in Hand.
Few issues with salary slip are:
1. The Per diem has a tax component which is being added to Indian salary tax component. So when its subtracted, the amount is huge and complicated.
2. Even though i'm in UK, i'm getting Indian Salary.

So my doubt is, whether its advisable to apply for Tier 1?

Further, i'm planning of avoiding the tax component even though i loose 30% in my total salary, so that BIA office can understand. I'm planning of putting the net salary in hand which is enough for scoring >75 points.
This i'm supporting using payslip and Bank statements.

Advice or previous experience would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance

Just bear in mind that you will not be able to use the uplift factor to your indian salary since you are working in the UK.

Do your calculations with this mind, and if you still achieve the necessary points, I don't see a problem with you basing your calculations on "net salary" instead of "gross salary".

thanks mate for the reply.

I'm bit worried why i cant use the uplift factor, as the salary i'm earning in India is my indian salary only. I'm not planning of showing Per diem (allowance). Is that valid?

This is what the guidance says:

102. In order to reflect differences in income levels across the
world, the income level required to score points varies
depending on where the applicant was working at the time
the earnings were made
. The Agency uses a series of
uplift ratios to bring overseas salaries in line with their UK
equivalents. The level of uplift received is dependent on the
average level of income received in the country in which the
earnings were made.

103. The country in which the applicant has been working, rather
than their nationality, determines the income bands against
which the earnings will be assessed.


105. If, during the period for which the applicant’s previous
earnings are being considered, the applicant has earned
monies from outside the UK, these can be included in
the calculation for the purposes of scoring points in this
area. The applicant should provide details of the overseas
earnings, in the original currency in which they were paid and
the closing spot exchange rate from www.oanda.com which
exists on the last day of the period for which the applicant
has claimed earnings in that currency should be used to
convert these earnings into Pounds Sterling.

106. Overseas earnings are not subject to any uplift calculations
for extension applications. The applicant must clearly indicate
on the application form which of their earnings were earned
in the UK and which were earned overseas
. The Pounds
sterling value of these overseas earnings will be added to any
UK earnings. The total figure will then be considered against
the points scoring table provided above.
