I am showing payslips from past 6 months along with bank details as a proof of regular income. However, 3 months back I joined a new organization. There was not a single day gap between my jobs.

While showing payslips from last 6 months as well as salary bank account details, should I mention that I have a salary account was changed from Bank "A" to Bank "B", and so I am attaching details of both?

  1. Bank Account A - Salary account till May 2017
  2. Bank Account B - opened in June and actively credited with salary.

Same query goes to payslips details as well.

Payslips from company A - till April, received May salary along with full and final in June.

Payslips from company B - from June - current months.

    Please also see this question. While it does not directly answer your question, it provides a background about the need for "proof of funds" and what exactly they are looking for.

  • Thanks @RedBaron, I read it and I am attaching already. Just curious should I write that I am attaching two bank statements/payslips as my salary account as well as company got changed in past 6 months? (I mean should I mention explicitly?) Aug 21 '17 at 7:31

    I doubt you're going to find an official source for such a particular situation. However as Gayot Fow confirms, best practice would be to have a well written cover letter addressing this and other issues which are not readily apparent.

  • Ok, Sure will follow the same. Aug 21 '17 at 8:04

Instead of mentioning all the details, you can add the following documents:

  1. Appointment letter of the current company [which needs to have the joining date]
  2. Pay Slips of the current company [3 months]
  3. Pay slips of the previous company [prev. 3 months]
  4. NoC letter from your current company
  5. Bank statements of both the banks for the previous 6 months

I have had a job change recently too. So, I submit my appointment letter along with the bank statements for my visa applications, so that the multiple banks in my statements are answerable.

Should I mention that, I have salary account was changed from Bank "A" to Bank "B", and so I am attaching details of both?

The appointment letter should be able to explain that to the visa officer. However, as an extra precaution, add a one-liner in your statement of purpose, saying that you have attached 2 pay slips and 2 account statements due to a recent job change.
