Latest Year Figures

Retained Profit

Gross Profit

If there is an upward trend in income across the last few years, it makes sense to your latest year only (instead of averaging).

If you decide to keep money in the business, this can still be used in the affordability calculation. 

Our lenders will consider using gross profit, instead of net profit, which will help to maximise your mortgage.

Using the latest year figure

As lenders consider a self employed person higher risk than an employed person, they need to see a consistent track record of earnings. Depending on the lender, this is often 2 or 3 years evidence of income. In their affordability calculation, an average will be taken or they will use the year with the lowest income.

For instance, if you earned the following:

2023 - £40,000

2022 - £30,000

2021 - £20,000

Normally a lender will use £20,000 (average) or £10,000 (lowest figure) when calculating how much you can borrow. However, there are lenders that will just consider the £40,000 and disregard the two previous years. 

This is particularly useful when a person is trying to maximise borrowings and there is an upwards trend in income. 

There is no limit to this. In theory, you can make a loss in previous years and a have a profitable latest year, and only use the latest year figure. 

Self-employed income tends to fluctuate so it useful to have lenders that will just use the latest year figure, and to have lenders that will take an average if the latest year is poor.
