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 applicantâ€™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
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.
