Sponsors

Hello I have a question I am hoping someone on here can answer please.
As a sponsor for PMV and then Partner Visa what is the income or the amount they consider acceptable as a sponsor?

There is currently no such requirement.

Ohh I thought there was because in one of the forms they ask the sponsor for Salary and proof of income/proof (eg last 6 months) you have money in your account to prove you have enough finances to support your partner.
I was wondering if they have a minimum figure regarding this?

40SP Sponsor form they ask for you:
Assessment of the sponsor’s ability to fulfil the sponsorship
undertaking will take place as part of the assessment of the
application and sponsors may be asked to provide
documentation covering:
• their latest income tax assessment;
• their current pay slips or other satisfactory evidence of
alternative income;
• evidence of major assets, including bank or similar
accounts, details of real estate/motor vehicle ownership;
• confirmation of liabilities, such as mortgage repayments,
rent, hire purchase, credit card repayments etc; and
• any other evidence that may help to establish their ability
to meet their undertaking

I don't recall seeing that when we did the 40SP.

As I had no income at that time, I wonder what I would have done.

But we got the visa..

I just looked back at our 40SP, and that bit wasn't on it.
The new 2019 form is a bit different.

I wonder if this means that despite there not being a formal threshold they will start looking at the financial situation a bit more to make an assessment whether sponsor support may be an issue.

This might be a silly question. Are you looking at the online form or a downloaded form?

I know there have been changes to the online forms. In the past the salary question was asked in paper form 40 SP, but there never was any particular income requirement. Quite a few of my sponsor clients were on pensions.

Sponsors do not have to meet their sponsorship undertaking from their own resources. I had one case where an elderly uncle who was living alone in a 7-bedroom mansion was pleased to offer a long lease at peppercorn rental.
