    Key considerations for mortgages for accountants: What you need to know

    While mortgages for accountants offer significant benefits, it is always important to consider the full picture before committing to any kind of long-term financial decision. A mortgage broker can help you make an informed decision taking into account all aspects – a few of these include:

    How to prove your income

    As an employed accountant, you will typically need to provide copies of your latest three months’ worth of payslips. There are, however, some lenders who can lend with just an employment contract or first payslip. If you are self-employed, you will need to provide copies of one to three years SA302s and corresponding tax overviews, depending on the lender.

    Finding the right lender

    Not every lender offers mortgages tailored specifically for accountants or professionals. A mortgage broker can help identify these lenders and find the right mortgage for you, satisfying your individual requirements.

    Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

    How much can I borrow for my mortgage as an accountant?

    Mortgages for accountants offer benefits such as enhanced income multiples and enhanced affordability. This means you may be able to borrow more for your mortgage compared to a non-professional with a similar financial situation.

    It is important to remember that the amount you can borrow will largely be based on your declared income. If you have recently set up your own accountancy firm and have a variable income, providing adequate proof of income can be challenging.  A mortgage broker can help you gather all the necessary documents together and help avoid these potential hurdles.

    Furthermore, certain lenders are open to considering other assets and business profits as alternative forms of income. This can be especially beneficial if you have substantial capital within your business but haven’t drawn an income recently, or if you have a low income but have substantial assets.
