What is an SA302?

An SA302 is a tax calculation form issued by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in the UK. It provides a summary of the income reported to HMRC through a Self Assessment tax return.

This form is particularly important for self-employed individuals and those with complex income sources, as it offers a detailed breakdown of their earnings, tax allowances and tax liabilities for a specific tax year.

What are the Key Details of an SA302

  1. Income Summary: The SA302 form includes details of all income sources reported on the Self Assessment tax return. This can include employment income, self-employment income, dividends, rental income and other sources.

  2. Tax Calculation: It shows the calculation of the tax owed for the tax year, including the income tax, National Insurance contributions, and any other taxes applicable. It details the allowances and reliefs claimed, such as the Personal Allowance and pension contributions.

  3. Tax Paid and Due: The form also indicates the amount of tax that has already been paid and any remaining balance due. This helps taxpayers to understand their tax liabilities and payments.

Why is an SA302 Important?

  1. Loan and Mortgage Applications: Lenders often require an SA302 form as evidence of income when self-employed individuals or individuals in receipt of dividends apply for loans or mortgages. It serves as a trusted document showing that the income has been officially reported to HMRC.

  2. Proof of Income: It provides an official summary of income and tax calculations, which can be useful for various administrative purposes, including applying for financial products or proving income for other official matters.

How to Obtain an SA302

  • Online via Personal Tax Account: Taxpayers can access and print their SA302 form through their online Personal Tax Account on the HMRC website.
  • Request via Accountant: An accountant can also obtain the SA302 form on behalf of their client.
  • Direct Request from HMRC: Taxpayers can contact HMRC to request a postal copy of their SA302 form.
