    How many years self assessments to apply for mortgage?

    Hi all

    how many years self assessment returns do I need for them to count as income on a mortgage application please?

    wasnt sure which forum to put this in

    You have to ask the Mortgage lender before you decide to apply. They may require certification by accountant instead.

    When trading companies apply to the banks for loan, they are usually required to show last 3 years audited accounts.


      Hi bhodgkiss
      It depends on how long you have owned property as an investment but normally lenders like to see at the very least the last two years Self Assessments supported by either the corresponding SA302 RO Tax Overview, clearly if you have only been doing it for under the two years then 1 year will be sufficient: If you have more than 3 mortgaged properties you will be expected to provide a myriad of supporting documents given that this type of investor falls under the new PRA rules , please refer to my post of 72 hours ago on this matter. Crucial in any submissions is the production of Bank Statements showing receipt of the rental as well as the payment of the associated mortgages.


        It would actually be for applying for a remortgage on my main residential property (and releasing equity)
        The more I can show I earn the bigger equity release I can do
        So alongwith my main job, i should also be able to show two years self assessment tax returns as additional income?

          I’m just wondering how difficult it is to actually do my own self assessment. Does anyone have a quick explanation of what it actually entails?

          I have two properties, no mortgages, and 2017-18 will be my second tax year in having them.

          I hired an accountant for 2016-17 on...

          I don’t, but thank you for bringing up.
          I’m just your average chap. Nothing extravagant to put through the books or claim. Pretty straight forward....

          If you had taxable earned income, they would still collect it close to when the income arose, as they would adjust your tax code to make you pay more tax on your salary.

          The general policy with tax has always been to try and collect it in a way that makes you approximately up to date all...

        • Additional 3% Stamp Duty with Inherited Home in the Equation?
          My client is about to buy a property on his name
          I manage one of his properties (a house that he inherited from his parents - he owns 25% share of it, his three other siblings own 25% each)
          Will he have to pay the additional 3% stamp duty tax in this situation?...

          If the share is greater than £40000 then the premium does unfortunately become payable on the new acquisition irrespective of whether it is for his own occupation or another BtL.

          It might be worth mentioning that if the share of the rental income is to be used towards the affordability...

          Yes of course (presuming the value of the share is over the value threshold). This is a tax that punishes the less-wealthy, punishes those without the financial stability of owing their own home, punishes those who are not geographically settled, punishes marriage, and punishes people for unknowingly...

          The taxman is trying to speed up collection of tax in current year by assessing your rental income for this year is roughly same as last year and making the BTL landlords pay tax sooner.

          It is rule based. It depends how much tax you owe, and the proportion of your total tax that is collected via PAYE
          (typically if you owe less than 1000 in tax, or more than 80% is via PAYE the rule will not trigger I think).

          Many thanks for your reply.

          I’ve never had this on previous tax returns for property (I’ve filled around 7 years worth).
