1. Dear Adnan, yes you can apply with these six payslips. The Home Office realise that many people are in a fluid working situation and they take account of things such as promotion and change in the variable rate you are being paid per hour. So long as your annual earnings are more than GBP 18,600, then you can sponsor your wife to come to the UK.
2. Be aware that you can include overtime. So, if you are slightly short the necessary GBP 18,600 you can work additional hours overtime to ensure you reach the GBP 18,600 threshold. It is your overall cumulative earnings which count.
3. Please Accept or Rate the answer as unless you do so your Expert will not receive payment for answering your question.
4. You need to contact Customer Services in order to get the Phone Call Request Service cancelled. I don't provide the Phone Call Service. However, please Rate the answer given.
5. The Home Office takes into account the net rental profit, not the gross amount of rent earned. So, you will have to deduct management fee, letting fee and other expenses before you arrive at a figure which can be taken into account, as part of your income.
6. I am surprised that the Guidance states this view. Be aware that these guidelines are not binding on the Home Office so they may be departed from. They are merely published to assist people but they don't bind the Home Office in what they do. So, my own view is that in so far as the Guidelines appear to suggest that gross income is allowed, this cannot be correct as only the taxable figure is counted as income in the generally accepted sense.
7. One does not have to wait until April for his tax return. One can simply apply based on the figures to hand. There is no need to wait. You can simply do an accounting today. Secondly, you can apply at any time combining the rental income with your employment income. Thirdly, it is not necessary to complete 12 month rental income before making the application for a UK spouse visa.
8. The employer simply mentions that the employee is employed on a continuing contract and states what the pay has been over the last six months. Secondly, there is no need to mention variation in payslips. Thirdly, you should include what the gross earnings are - don't leave it to guesswork by the Home Office.
9. Please Accept or Rate the answer as unless you do so your Expert will not receive payment for answering your many questions.
10. You are making a mountain out of a molehill! The Home Office will simply double the six months figures and get a final yearly figure. Finally, there should be a Rating system at the top of the page where you can rate the answer. Please Rate the answer and finish the questions.
11. The variation in the hourly rate is not an important issue as there will merely be a doubling of your income over six months to get the annual amount you have earned. I don't understand why you are labouring the point. The actual variation in the hourly rate is of little difference and it won't make any difference when the decision is made on your visa. I appreciate the point that in theory your annual salary should be higher if you take only the last three months earnings and that hourly rate. However, that is not done. You would have to wait another three months to use this new hourly rate as the basis for your annual salary. However, to get your annual salary, the Home Office will merely double what you earned over the last six months. So, the difference in hourly rate is neither here nor there.
12. I don't know what you mean by "can I apply with these 6 payslips". What 6 payslips???? The bot***** *****ne is that you have to use six months payments. They are not limited to three months payments or any change in hourly rate.
13. You are welcome. Best wishes with your application. I hope you meet with success.
