SA302s and Tax Year Overviews | downloading from the HMRC website

Most Lenders now accept copies of SA302 tax returns and tax year overview downloaded from HMRC Gateway online tax return submission service.

However, we find that our clients frequently have trouble navigating the HMRC website and obtaining copies of the required documents in the required format.

This guide is designed to make it simple to obtain what you need from HMRC Gateway where you as the taxpayer are accessing HMRC Gateway via your own log-ins.


If you sent your return using commercial software or by paper you can’t print a copy of the tax calculation from this account but you can print the tax year overview.
If you used commercial software to send your return, you must use that software to print your tax calculation
Most Lenders will require 3 years figures so it is best to print out SA302’s and Tax Year Overviews covering the last 3 completed returns.

Lenders like data to cover a period finishing no longer than 15 months from the mortgage application date. Therefore an application late in the calendar year may well need returns
provided covering the tax year ending in the year of application.
