Employment Income: Salary (paid cash in hand)

Our standard acceptability


Criteria definition:

Indicates if we can accept salary paid in cash as an allowable income type for affordability purposes. For example, Mr Jones works as a fruit picker on the local farm and is paid weekly in cash.

Policy Notes:

Although we expect most incomes to be paid into personal accounts we accept that some jobs may still receive cash in hand. As there is less of an audit trail we are more cautious when assessing this type of income.

Criteria categories:
