I have been placed on furlough and my visa is expiring, can I rely on my pre-furlough salary for the purposes of meeting the financial requirement?

Strictly applying the rules and guidance, if relying on salaried employment, your salary is calculated by using the lowest figure received in the 6 months preceding submission of your application. We presume that discretion would be exercised here and instead your pre-furlough salary could be relied upon, but we are yet to receive any confirmation on this.

Meeting the financial requirement for a family application can be very complicated; we would advise you to speak with a member of our team so we can tailor our advice to your individual circumstances.
