Me and my wife are applying for the first initial spouse visa, which is from her Tier 4 work/study visa to a spouse visa for 2.5 years. For the financial requirement, I am a director and employee of a property company. We have only been in operation for a limited time and have only recently come to the end of a full first financial tax year. In this tax year I have only been receiving an income for 5 months amounting to under £10,000. This is therefore not enough to meet the £18,600 p.a. requirement. My partner works but earns under the £18,000 requirement which leaves us in a strange position. Is there anyway I can still sponsor my wife considering my company owns a numerous properties and earns a far higher income than the minimum financial requirement?
