Proof of income for self employed mortgage customers

Contrary to popular belief it is not normally any more difficult to get a mortgage if you are self employed but without payslips although the documents you’ll need to provide are a little different. Most lenders will now let you prove your income using your Tax Calculation and Tax Year Overview, both of which can be quickly downloaded from the HMRC online portal.
