Default What do caseworkers take into consideration when they look at your pay slips?

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know what numbers do caseworkers take into consideration when they look at the pay slips, is it the total earnings, the net pay, or the amount paid into the bank?

I am submitting 6 pay slips and I just found a small discrepancy in the last one.
On the amount paid section, the first 5 pay slips show the same amount paid, except for 50p difference in some of them (at the end of the slip which is the amount that goes into your bank), however the last one has a slightly higher amount 5.20 difference. Am I in trouble for the fact that it was not the same amount that went in the bank consistently for the 6 months?

The 5.20 difference is only because my husband got out of a TOTE

I am worried because on the application (SET M) they asked: What do they earn? And my answer was - the same amount continuously, above the financial, and now i see that it is not consistent due to the 5.20 

Please, can anyone share their knowledge?
Thank you.

The caseworker look to total earning which is the gross income .

All the wages should be the same as the one transferred to your bank account .

the wage slips show different amount in the beginning because you are paying less tax depending on the early months.

If the wage slip shows one amount and the money transferred into the bank shows different amount then you need a letter from the employer that is a genuine mistake by the employer when he was transferring the wages.your bank statement should show that the extra amount paid into your account has been refended to the employer and a letter should be attached to the wage slip.

Even a single penny difference you need an employer letter because the immigration is too tough .

I will advise do not submit these wage slips with the application as all show different amount .start new wage slips and keep an eye on the wage slip and the bank statements that they both matchs each other.

I do not know your situation have you applied or you are applying for (STM) ,I will not risk it with these wage slips.

Hi Raheemo and everyone,

Thank you for your help.
The thing is that i have already submitted my application and uploaded my supporting documents my BRP expires in 2 weeks.

The pay slips on the section that says "Basic Pay" and "total earnings" show the same exact amount which is 2,402.41 (on all 6 pay slips), but after the deductions, etc, at the bottom of the slip is where the amounts are slightly different:

Slip 1, amount paid: 1,852.70 ( all after deductions)
Slip 2, amount paid: 1,852.50
Slip 3, amount paid: 1,852.70
Slip 4, amount paid: 1,852.70
Slip 5, amount paid: 1,852.70
Slip 6, amount paid: 1,857.90 (this is higher as my husband stopped paying TOTE).

The amount paid shown on each slip is the same amount that was transferred into the bank, but what I am worried about is that the amounts paid are not exactly the same every month.

My only hope is that the caseworkers look at the Basic pay of 2,402.41 and not the money after deductions.

Can someone please, take me out of my misery?

Thank you very much.

I don't really understand what use it is to post after you have already submitted your supporting documents. There's nothing you can do and any advice can't be used after the fact.

All of your payslips are well over the required amount, you are really worried over nothing. "The same amount continuously" doesn't mean what you think it does, it means your pay frequency is on a regular basis.

Thank you Clever-Octopus,

I wanted to ask the question as I was worried about the slips showing different amounts and wanted to get advice from someone to give me peace of mind. I see i was worrying over nothing.

Thank you for taking your time to reply.

Yes, I don't think you have anything to worry about. I know it is natural to worry after submitting an application for something so crucial but you should be fine. What matters is that you clearly meet the financial requirement.

Hello Cleveroctopus, I’m worried now after reading your response.

I answered this as not the same amount continuously, but above the financial requirement - because I had a salary increase starting January , and my 6months payslips is not the same amount (100 higher since January, I submitted 12months payslip because of this answer). I cannot change what I have answered now cause I completed the online application, but I can still upload documents. Is it advisable to add a cover letter to explain why I answered it that way?
I )applicant) earn more than double the required financial requirement of 18,600 and I’m on a permanent employment.
