Default SET(M) - Payslip Question

Hello all,

My June payslip from my employer has a net payment amount which is 238 higher than usual because it includes a small payment amount labelled as 'Bonus Pensionable' on the payslip, in addition to detailing my usual salary payment.

The payslip was issued earlier than usual (18/06/2019) - to facilitate payment of the 'Bonus Pensionable' amount on the 18th. The remaining net amount on the payslip - my usual monthly salary amount - was paid in at the end of the month as per usual.

Does anyone who understands how payslips / bank statements are looked at by the HMO think this is an issue and if so, what can i do about it?

I raised this with the immigration lawyer who we went through and she recommended explaining this in a covering letter. She was happy that I meet the financial requirements in spite of this but i guess i want to get a second opinion,

Thanks

It depends on how you are paid - If you're salaried and paid monthly, they take the lowest gross payslip in the 6 month period multiplied by twelve.

I would agree that any discrepancies should be explained in a letter, preferably by a manager or someone in Payroll/HR if possible. I doubt that this will be a big issue though

Yeah I am salaried, paid monthly - in my case the lowest gross payslip x 12 is well above the required amount.

Its just that in that particular month the payslip gross amount is higher than the other 5 months because of the 'Bonus Pensionable' amount. So I guess there is no 'discrepancy' between the payslip and my bank statement only between that payslip and the other 5.

On my payslip it has the gross pay and the net pay - all of my pay slips have the same gross pay amount - so maybe i am worrying about nothing.

Well, the discrepancy I mean is really with the date of that payslip, not the amount. Under Category A, you're claiming to be paid at a regular frequency. Again, I really do not think this is something that would cost you the application, just something which would make sense to explain (very) briefly
