Options for showing your income

I do not have an Accountant:

The quickest and simplest way for you to show us what you earn is to provide your last 2 years self assesment tax calcualtions (SA302) accompanied by your tax year overview that you would have received from HMRC.

If you file your returns online then both are available to download immediately from your online HMRC account. We would also like to see your last 2 business related bank statements (dated in the last 60 days). If you submit paper returns, then you can provide your last 2 years SA302 sent to you by HMRC. (Copies can be obtained by contacting the HMRC helpdesk) again with the last 2 business related bank statements. If you do not have self-assessments available we may still be able to help you. Contact your local branch who may be able to assist.

I have an Accountant:

If you have an accountant that holds a recognised qualification then they can:

  • Complete our straightforward Accountants certificate (click here to download).
  • Provide your last accounts.
  • Provide your 2 year annual tax calculations (SA302) and tax year overviews sent by HMRC.

I am a sub contractor:

No problem we can still help. You will need to provide your last 2 months payslips or last 2 months bank statements (dated in the last 60 days) that show your income being credited.
