Proving income is often a problem for landlords looking to buy a home to live in or rent, so for once the tax man is offering some help.

HM Revenue & Customs has published a list of the 60 lenders who will accept printouts of tax forms as evidence of income.

The list covers most of the big lenders – plus many smaller outfits that offer specialist home loans.

  These lenders will accept:

  • A tax calculation copy (SA302) printed from an HMRC online account
  • A tax calculation printed from tax filing commercial software

“The lenders will also need a tax year overview, which you can print from your HMRC online account,” says HMRC.

“Always check with the lender or mortgage provider what they require as evidence of your income.

“The lenders on this list have agreed to accept tax calculations and tax year overviews that customers, or their agents or accountants, have printed themselves.”

The lenders ready to accept the printouts are:
