We provide an accountant's reference letter or accountant's certificate for a mortgage, renting or self-employment, which often is in relation to our existing clients' mortgage application, confirmation of self-employed status or verification for renting a new property.
REQUESTS FOR REFERENCES ON CLIENTS FINANCIAL STATUS
Lenders (i.e. banks, building societies), insurance companies, letting agents and others may seek references from your accountant regarding your financial status. We often get asked to produce a reference letter, which confirms that we act for the client, along with the details of their income, i.e. business profits, salary and dividend income. Some lenders ask us to fill in their specific form, which certifies the client's income. They are most often used for company directors and serve to 'prove' the company accounts or other information provided.
ACCOUNTANT'S REFERENCE FOR MORTGAGE, RENTING AND SELF-EMPLOYMENT
The accountant's reference must be completed and signed by a suitably qualified accountant. We are an AIA practice and are recognised by the majority of UK banks and building societies as being eligible to sign the accounts of clients seeking finance, mortgages or other supporting documentation. See here the full list of banks and building societies.
Provided that the requests concern factual information about accounting periods declared to HMRC in a tax return or the case of accounts already filed with Companies House, we are usually in a position to help. In the meantime, we reserve the right to decline to provide a reference due to insufficient information or limited knowledge of the client, including if we have only recently started acting for them.
