    Increase SA for mortgage application

    Increase SA for mortgage application 6th Jul 17 at 10:14 PM

    Last year I sold 50% shares of my small limited company for 11000.

    The shares were transferred back to me after 6 months for nil monies.

    I would like to include this amount on my SA302 tax return as myself and my wife are applying for a mortgage and this will help with my income as I am self employed.

    Should the above figure be included or can it be included in my SA302.

    IMHO that's a capital gain, not income.

    It won't form part of your income for mortgage purposes.

    I agree with Kingstreet. It's a capital gain so it won't help your affordability.

    It's also below the annual capital gain allowance, so doesn't need to be included within your tax return.
