They certainly asked me to send proof of income when I applied for a BAPP earlier this year. I stated my true annual income (above £50K by the way). I sent a copy of my payslip for the previous month. This showed less than I stated when annualised (still above £50K though), as I get a bonus every July. My take home pay is also relatively low compared to salary. My application was rejected. I put this down to a combination of bonus and low take-home pay.

However, my Platinum application was approved last week with no request for income proof. So, I am not so sure that things are quite as cut and dried as some my suggest.
