SA302 Self Assessment - Tax Calculation for year ended 5th April

  • Lenders and mortgage brokers often request a form SA302
  • This shows the taxpayers personal tax calculation as shown in the H M Revenue & Customs record and is accepted as verification of the borrower’s income
  • Historically form 302's were always requested from H M Revenue & Customs who would send out the forms by post.
  • It shows the full income and tax computation
  • H M Revenue & Customs now have a particular policy with the issue of form SA302's
  • Tax year Overview TYO (and tax payments for the year)
  • A number of lenders have signed up to accepting a Tax Overview.
  • Tax overview can be printed from the online HM Revenue & Customs through the Government Gateway by either of:
  • The tax payer or
  • The taxpayer’s accountant
  • Even though Self Assessment tax returns have been filed online, the overview takes some processing time by HMRC before the Tax Overview is available. This should normally be only two or three days.
  • The Tax Overview shows just the tax liability;
  • and, if any: Surcharges, Interest, Penalties, Payments made, Balance outstanding.

About how to print Tax Overviews

  • The Tax Overview is then matched with the tax computation, which has been used to arrive at the tax liability figure, i.e. it shows the taxpayer's income and tax computation, for sending to the lender.
  • So this confirms that the tax computation provided by the taxpayer or the accountant agrees with the figure on the HMRC online account.
  • H M Revenue & Customs will only provide the traditional form SA302:
  • if the request includes the name of the lender
  • and the lender is not on the list of lenders who accept Tax Overviews.
  • It is often the case, with mortgage brokers, that the lender is not known at the outset and the Tax Overview and accountants tax computation is the only documentation which can be provided.
  • If you know the name of the lender, please check the list of lenders who will accept a Tax Overview and let us know; we will organise the appropriate paperwork.
