It's all about the money! Together we'll explore the financial requirements of Appendix FM.

Level: Intermediate


At the end of the course participants should fully understand the financial requirements in Appendix FM and the related evidential requirements in Appendix FM-SE, and be equipped to handle a range of applications involving different financial circumstances.

Topics will cover the requirements for partners and other family members under Appendix FM and Appendix FM-SE, including:

• calculating level of income/savings required
• permitted sources of income
• specified evidence
• methods of calculating salaried employment, self-employment, non-employment income and cash savings
• combining sources of income
• adequate maintenance test
• other sources of income, financial support or funds and the differing exceptionality tests
• case studies

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of the financial requirements for partner-based applications for entry clearance and leave to remain made under Appendices FM and FM-SE, and to explore in detail aspects of those rules. Come prepared with a calculator!


The session is aimed at those who are already practising in this area, and will assume working knowledge of the structure of Appendix FM within the immigration rules.

Tutors: Nath Gbikpi, Leigh Day and Adam Cotterill, Doyle Clayton Solicitors
