If you are entering as a spouse (ie married) then you do not need to be on joint bank statements, bills etc prior to marriage.

Not everyone lives together before marriage - you just need to show that your marriage is genuine and that your husband can sponsor you.

It will not hurt to take both of them. It will only come helpful as you don’t wanna risk anything with home office [/QUOTE]

Can you let me know what successful applicants have done with this.

If your spouse is acting as your sponsor all you will need is the bank statements + audited accounts for the previous years depending on what category you are applying in. As long as your partner has exceeded the earnings threshold of £18,600 it should be fine.

Hi, thanks for all the great info, one question, does the statement of accounts have to be the same as the tax year, my accountant has done it for the first full business year. We have a full year tax return and a matching SA302.

Best and thanks

Terry

Can I ask how you got your SA302. Latest information seems to suggest HMRC no longer send out an SA302 as they have agreed with mortgage lenders that tax calculations online is evident enough.

Hi. I would really appreciate it if someone can help me.

I am a British citizen and intend to get married in July 2018 in Bangladesh, I have been previously married and have 2 children's, both of whom are also British.

I am a self employed taxi driver and I have always submitted my tax returns between April - April in line with the UK's financial year.

I would like to start banking my earnings as of October 2018 and run it for 12 months until October 2019 to meet the financial requirements. In July I will travel for 5 weeks to get married and once I get back i will re-start work and start banking my income once again to make up 12 months accounts. I have not banked any of my income from the beginning of this financial year (5th April 2018).

The question is;

Can I use my October 2018 - October 2019 accounts to apply for my wife's spouse visa or does my 12 month accounts need to be within the financial year, April 2018 - April 2019?

Many Thanks

I am trying to talk to help line but the line is busy and I am waiting for call back.
With help from your post, I feel that I am so close to finishing off with the massive preparation for the big day. Fingers crossed.
Hi Hisco,

I am almost in the same situation as yours, have you managed to get confirmation on whether we can use the full companies financial year (in my case from 1st Dec to 30th Nov 2018) or it should be always 6th Apr to 5th Apr 2018?).

Also, not sure, what needs to be answered on the following question under self-employment: As, SA302 will always have Apr to Apr details!!

What was the income (in GBP) from self-employment in the last financial year?
This is the income (i.e. profit), not turnover. Please provide the figure before tax and National insurance deductions. Get the figures from either form SA302 or SA300


Your help would be very much appreciated.
Please if any one else have a clarity on difference between using company full year or common financial year (6th Apr to 5th Apr) then please share the information.
Thanks in advance.

Worth noting that Hisco's post was from June 2015 and s/he hasn't been on the forum for over 3 years, so are very unlikely to see your question. Hopefully somebody else can help though.

Good luck.
