Hi guys,

I have a full time job with £7.65 an hour rate and contracted for 48hours a week.

MARCH: £2019 ( includes overtime)
APRIL: £2203 ( includes overtimes )
MAY: £1285 ( Holiday got married )
JUNE: £1927 ( includes overtime )
JULY: £2203 ( includes overtime )
AUG: £2340 ( Includes overtime)

Total: £11977

I was just wondering if this would be sufficient to meet the financial requirement, as I am quite worried because I have red on some topics that ECO picks the lowest income to count the financial requirement.

which category would I fall into?

Another question is P60 required for my wife's visa application?

Please help...

Thank you.

Not sure why you started another thread for two related questions. It shouldn't affect it, but depends on your actual income and whether you're salaried or not - refer to my reply in your other thread.

Being contracted 48 hours and being salaried are two different things. Being contracted just means they have to give you at least 48 hours work a week. Being salaried means they have to pay you 48 hours a week regardless of if you worked them or not.

For example, if you were off sick or took a holiday (like you did in March), would you still be paid?

I guess I am contracted as I dont get paid if I dont work and we get 28 days holiday with in a year.

Right!

That means you'll be applying under non-salaried. Your annual income is calculated by the previous 6 months income annualised:

£11,977/6 x 12 = £23,954

So you more than meet the finical requirements. As you've been in the job for longer than 6 months you apply under Category A,which requires the previous 6 months of pay slips and bank statements. P60 isn't a required document, but if you have it, then it's always worth adding in. You also need a letter from your employer to confirm everything. Adding in a job contract is also good if you have it.

I assume the above is your gross income (i.e. before tax)? And that it's paid into your bank account by your employer?

You're welcome. Just be sure to make it clear you are non-salaried, that way the ECO doesn't accidentally treat you as salaried, which would put below the financial threshold.
I will do, wil there be a section on appendixs 2 or VAF4 to show the ECO that I am on non salaried employment?

Sorry I am so new to this.

I'm not familiar with the out of country application as I've only dealt with FLR(M) forms for my wife. There should be a question which states the type of employment your under, also it should be mentioned in the employment letter from your employer.
