Hello...I am wanting to apply for Fiance visa for my girlfriend this year, I am self employed in the UK.
I know I must earn at least £18,600 to qualify. Can someone tell me this can be made up of dividends as well as PAYE income?
E.g. 10K dividends 9K PAYE = £19K

Are the rules not slightly different for self employed...

Where's Gary when he is needed, he's the Guru on this one....

There has been several discussions on this theme, and if I remember correctly, you would be required to either show certified accounts for the previous 12 months, where both earnings and dividends add up to a higher amount than the required level, and/or, a certified accountants statement of your annual earnings...

I hope that someone soon appears and either confirms or rejects this, as I can understand your position..

You could also try to pm Gary M...

Hi i had a similar situation , we got married last year so obviously had to apply for a spouse visa after, when you say you are self employed and then mention dividend payments does that mean that you are a company director? If so that is the same as my situation and you are classed as employed by the Ltd company. I supplied a letter from my accountant stating my total income (PAYE and dividends) also my tax return and obviously bank statements which had to be for a full 12 months showing the payments received.Hope this helps.
