4000 pound!

You tell us.

The only people that know the circumstances in which that money is arriving to your bank account are yourselves.

Sorry to be blunt, but you should be talking to your wife's employers to see what documents you can get.

It would not harm if you actually talk to somebody in the home office asking exactly why they are asking for further proof of funds.

I'll be very honest, £3000 as relocation money for a couple is very little, so maybe the authorities want proof you have more.

Basic rule is you need to have required funds available in your bank account for three months prior to applying for your visa, whatever the 'required funds' are. This is to stop people borrowing money off friends and relatives to top up the balance just to satisfy the consulate, then quickly repay the money, meaning that the required funds aren't available for you in the UK.
