How is my income calculated to determine whether I’m eligible for the Portuguese D7 Visa?

I have read that UK citizens need to provide three years of income for Portugal’s D7 visa application with P60 documents. Is there a minimum salary per year or an average amount to be a successful applicant? For example, if my income for the first year is low but the second and third years are higher, does that mean I may be eligible? How is this calculated?

    There is no need to calculate any income in order to apply for a D7 visa, as it is a matter of showing the services that, objectively, you fulfil the legal criteria in force. Also, the necessary monthly income will vary accordingly to the number of applicants to the visa. As such, the current rules state that you, as main applicant, have to have a minimum income equal to the Portuguese minimum salary (€ 705,00). Therefore, you'll need to have a minimum of € 705,00 per month for 12 months - the minimum means of substance for your D7 Visa equals € 8.460,00 per year. The criteria to be fulfilled is as follows: Main applicant - € 8.460,00 per year; Second adult and additional adults - 50% of minimum monthly salary, on a total of € 4.230,00 per year; Children and young people under 18 years of age and non-minor dependent children - 30% of minimum monthly salary, on a total of € 2.538,00 per year.
