Default payrise affects our application?

My fiance got a payrise last month, we are about to apply next week, we still waiting for the bank statement from the bank. But now in the appendix 2 we dont know what to write about it!!. our questions are about next:

3.11 What is your sponsorís annual income from this employment before tax?
3.12 Has your sponsor been in employment with the same employer and earning the amount, as detailed in 3.11 above,
continuously for 6 months prior to the date of the application? (Category A)

Now we have 5 months payslips of the previous salary and one of the new, we think we should take the old salary to apply, is this ok?

thanks in advance for read this

I believe they are concerned with a pay decrease, not increase.

I would report the amount with the 5 months as one rate and one month at the higher rate. Supply the pay slips and bank statements. Then attach a note explaining a pay increase was received effective ____. If you have an official notice from the employer with the increase, you could attach that as well.

I'm sure one of our very knowledgeable mods will be along to give you sound advice. I should think this can only be a good thing!

In the meantime, congrats on the pay rise!

I had a pay rise similar to yours when i applied. I had the HR and payroll manager to write me a letter declaring the date which my pay rise was granted and also how long i had been under the pay bracket prior to my rise. When answering question 3.11, i put my current salary, and answered yes to 3.12. I did this because having included a copy of my contract, my new pay rise was detailed on it.

It seemed to work fine and we had no problems with the application. As said above, a rise is only going to work to your advantage.

I can certainly understand being nervous the second time! The mods here are great and know a lot. Keep asking until you're sure you understand. I believe if the pay rise is addressed in your employer letter with the date it was effective, it will make it easier for the ECO processing your application to understand.

Perhaps Joppa or Nyclon can give you some specific advice.

Ok, yes that is a good idea, we have a letter saying the salary was ______ during 2013 and got payrise since may this year, this letter is from the employer. and we have payslips and bank statement of the las 7 months. Maybe that should be enough.
Thanks for replay.
