Dear All, I am helping my fiancé to apply her fiancé visa to enter to UK. I am full time employee worked for the same employer for more than 3 year now, and the salary is increased each year, say the salary is increased to 30k after 1 July 2017, before it was 28k between 01/07/2016 and 30/06/2017. I am get myself confused after complete the ‘Appendix 2 of VAF4A: financial requirements’. Could you please help with below question? Many thanks.

Based on my background, is that category A or B I meet for the financial requirement? Where I could see category A-G policy guidance note?[/

On the form of ‘Appendix 2 of VAF4A: financial requirements’.
How should I answer below question?

3.11 What is your sponsor’s annual income from this employment before tax? >>>>>>>>>>>>>> 30,000.00[/
3.12 Has your sponsor been in employment with the same employer and earning the amount, as detailed in 3.11 above,
Yes If ‘Yes’ go to 3.21 No If ‘No’ go to 3.13

I have been employed by same employer, but my salary is increased as 30k from this month, it was 28k before 1st July. Should I select YES or NO here?

If NO above, I need to go to 3.13.
3.13 Has your sponsor had other salaried employment, in the UK, in the 12 months prior to the date of application?
Should I select YES or NO here?

Many thanks Again.

You can apply under Cat A. If there has been a pay rise during the last 6 months, the thing to do is to submit your pre-increase pay and work out your annual income accordingly. And you answer Yes to the question about earning the same amount, and skip 3.13.

Thanks for your reply Toppa.

So 3.12 I should select YES. And then go to 3.21 directly.

Can you advise why I still need to work out my annual income? I can't see where need this annual income information?

For the payslips, originally I would like to submit last 12 months payslip (July 2017 --first month after month rising + June 11 previous months) Did you say I don't submit July 2017 payslip? Can you please advise Why?

You enter your income under Cat A in 3.11. If you are salaried, take the lowest amount received in the last 6 months and multiply by 12.
For Cat A, you only submit last 6-month payslips. Submitting more doesn't help and only serves to confuse. Your latest payslip must be no older than 28 days when you apply, so you may need the July payslip, depending on when you apply.

Thanks for your information.

Can you clarify what does this means? 'If you are salaried, take the lowest amount received in the last 6 months and multiply by 12.'?

Before July this year, my annual salary was 28k. Now is 30k. Whay I still need need to like 'If you are salaried, take the lowest amount received in the last 6 months and multiply by 12.'? where I should put this figure?

Thanks.

They don't really care what you make now. They want you to take the lowest income you've received in the past 6 months and essentially convert that to a yearly salary.

Some people's income is all over the place, so they just use the lowest as a benchmark to confirm eligibility.

Thanks. So in my case, on 3.11 should I still put my increased salary 30k, or previous 28K?

What is your lowest monthly payslip in the last 6 months?

Take that and multiply by 12. That is the answer.

If I multiply by 12, the figure is different either 28k or 30k, that means it would be different as employment letter salary figure.

It won't cause any issue???

I did take the lowest monthly salary in last 6 months, then worked out 28k before tax. Shall I put 28K on my first Question?

Yes, 28k, and it won't cause problems as ECO knows the rules.
Hi my friend. Thanks for your information. But I even doubt myself if I put my previous 28K on the form. I think it should be current salary that is 30k. Please correct me.

Just put 28k, as it's based on your lowest monthly pay during the last 6 months.
