    Good morning @ali2017

    It is possible to meet the financial requirement if you have been in employment for less than 6 months, however, this must be met in 2 parts. Firstly, your new employment must be at a level above the minimum requirement of £18,600 and secondly you must be able to show that you have earned at least this amount for the 12 month period prior to the date of application.

    Hi thanks for your time,
    So if i show 6 months payslip/bank statement then apply will i still have to show the previous 12 months?

    I just started my new job this week
    So if i apply at the end of September will that be ok?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello @ali2017

    You will only have to show evidence for 12 months earnings if you have been in employment for less than 6 months with the same employer. Therefore, if you make the application after being employed for at least 6 months with your new employer then it is fine to submit evidence of the past 6 months employment and earnings.
