i WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THE MOST EXPERIENCED MEMBERS ON THIS SITE COULD ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION AS I BELIEVE THIS IS CRUCIAL!!. WOULD HOLIDAY PAY BE CLASSED AS NORMAL WORKING HOURS WHEN THE ECO IS CALCULATING MY MONTHLY BANK STATEMENTS AND PAYSLIPS? AS I SEE IT ALL HOLIDAY PAY IS CLASSED AS WORKED AND IS ALSO TAXED.

IF I HAVE ANSWERED MY OWN QUESTION I AM SORRY. BUT I CANNOT SEE THIS ANSWERED IN ANY RULES. AND I AM SURE THIS WILL CROP UP TIME AFTER TIME IN SPOUSE VISA APPLICATIONS..

It has never cropped up before, as there is really no such thing as holiday pay. You get an annual salary, and are paid for the hours you work plus the time you are on paid holiday. There is no distinction.

Thank you Victoria. As i see it. The caseworker cannot refuse you a visa for your spouse if you meet the financial requirement. You can show that you earning in excess of £1500 gross each month over a six month period. They are not interested in how much debt or overdrafts etc you have. "The purpose is not to draw up a personal financial balance sheet for each couple.(outgoings,credit cards and other debts mortgage etc"). So as long you as you are over the hurdle you are fine. The old rules you had to prove you could support your spouse after outgoings etc. This is what has bothered me, and i can see from other posts on this site it has concerned other members. We tend to get paranoid about issues that are no longer relevant. And Holiday pay is taxable and as you quite rightly said there is no distinction...
