Spotted on Facebook :

'Sitting here with my fiance and calculating his payslips. We are 56 pounds short of the 18,600 requirement. Has anyone come up against this same situation and what have you done? Any suggestions...Help....we are very discouraged.'


I am afraid there is no discretion if the rules. If you fall £56 short of the requirement, you need (£16000 + 2.5 * 56 = £16140) to meet the requirement, in a cash bank account. Highlighting how ridiculous the rules are. (The lack of discretion has been highlighted in the APPG report, and elsewhere).
