Welcome to my latest blog,
Agents have told us that not all their client’s lenders will accept the self-serve copy printed from their HMRC online account or the commercial software used to file the SA return, or their commercial software does not print.
We have been working with the Council of Mortgage Lenders to understand their requirements and the changes necessary to accept self-served copies of the tax calculation from the HMRC online account or the commercial software used to file the SA return. We have also liaised with commercial software companies to ensure their software offers a print facility.
A list of lenders who will accept self-serve copies can be found in the HMRC’s guidance, Mortgage providers and lenders who accept a SA302 tax calculation and a tax year overview.
It is always worth checking with the lender or mortgage provider what they require as evidence of income. And should another third party require a copy of the tax calculation, you may wish to ask if they accept a self-serve copy.
Now that we have made all the changes required to allow agents to self-serve online, we will no longer be issuing paper copies of the tax calculations directly to agents from the 5 September 2017.
