Hi everyone,

We are still in the process of sorting out our IVA and have sent most of our documents. My partner only works 2 days per week due to poor health and has her wages paid directly into the bank. However, she does not get wage slips and neither do any other employees. Whenever we have needed to prove her earnings we have shown bank statements or had a letter from her boss stating how many hours she works per week and the hourly rate.

Our IVA firm are adamant that they have pay slips even though we have none to provide. We have been told that the IVA cannot go ahead without these. We have sent bank statements and highlighted the money being paid in which shows the amount and company name. Shoulkdn't this be good enough and if not what can we do if she cannot get payslips? The only option I can see is her having to leave her job which would then result in less money for the creditors and is not what we want to happen.

Ben

I thought providing payslips was a legal requirement. Has she had a P60 at all?

Why would she have to leave her job though, unless she were to move to another job?
7 year IVA completed in December 2016 - there is light at the end of that tunnel

I think that you may be clients of mine, because a member of my staff asked me about the same query today? It is a legal requirement to recieve wage-slips, and I am suprised that your wife's employers do not issue them. Is there any particular reason for this?

Bank statements do not provide the full picture - for instance your wife could have a staff loan being deducted, other deductions such as sharesave schemes which would affect the IVA. If she could get a letter from her employers confirming her gross salary, together with the deductions made and notification of her tax coding this might be a compromise, but I still don't understand why this firm is not honouring their requirement to provide wageslips.

Hi
I think that it is reasonable to insist on wage slips and any employer should provide these

Unless you work cash in hand, you should get a payslip. I've never not had one in all my working life.

an employer has to provide you with a payslip/statement of pay. if they don't for whatever reason, then i'm sure a phonecall to the inland revenue would nudge things along.

Orange - that is not the same as a proper payslip.

All employers should provide you with this.

I've always had a payslip, even when I did Saturday working as a teenager - and that's more years ago than I care to remember!
