Thanks for your reply. As I've mentioned, I am self employed so although my earnings have been steady, they have not been regular so I can't provide regular monthly bank statements. However, I can provide annual bank statements to prove I have sufficient savings. The amount I've earned in the last 12 months is well short of the minimum amount of £18,600 - I understand that whatever the shortfall is in income has to be compensated by savings?
Is this going to be an issue?
