    Hi all

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

    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?

          If you have lived in the property for 21 years out of 23 years , the tax office will give exemption to capital gains tax for 21 years + 18 months from date of moving out. So only the gain for last 6 months is taxable.

          If your capital gain over 23 years gives you £460,000 profit which...

          Then your CGT bill will almost certainly be zero.

          Unless it is an extremely expensive property and increased in value by at least a million or so (given two basic CGT exemptions) -- if that is the case you will need to look at precise numbers.

          Can you prove it was your only...

          Paying of (utility) bills has nothing whatsoever to do with ownership with respect to Capital gains.

          If you lived there for 23 years and rented it out for 2 years, GCT would almost certainly be zero.

          But you seem not to have lived there - or did you????. The amount of time...

          Reading "no" as "know", and assuming you have copyright clearance.

          It is not a property tax; it might better be described as an investment tax. Also it is not 40%; the rate depends on your marginal rate of tax, and whether or not the gain is on residential property,...

          I'm am assuming this property you are selling was previously rented out, and therefore was not your main residence, if this is the case you will be liable to CGT, the exception is only for your main residence, if you can prove you lived there prior to selling it you could then get the relief of CGT...
