What is a retained profit mortgage?

A retained profit mortgage is a mortgage where the lender allows you to use your share of the company’s profits as part of your application, without requiring you to withdraw it. Some lenders will only take into consideration personal income in their affordability calculations, which can be a problem if you’re withdrawing a modest salary into your personal accounts but own a business with substantial funds. Calculating affordability based on a £30,000 salary compared to £250,000 profits is going to result in a vastly different figure – reducing the amount you can borrow considerably. If you’re not sure how to proceed, talk to an expert mortgage advisor who understands your business accounts and can direct you towards lenders who specialise in retained profit mortgages.

There are a limited pool of lenders offering retained profit mortgages, so the criteria can be a little more difficult to meet.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much can I borrow with a retained profit mortgage?

This is a difficult question to answer on a general basis and most lenders will need to assess each case individually. The lender will take into account a range of information including outstanding debts and liabilities as well as your credit history and financial information about your business to determine whether you fit into their affordability criteria. To gain a more accurate idea of the amount you can expect to borrow, talk to one of our friendly advisors today!

The simple answer is YES! Provided you fit within the lender’s criteria, you should still be able to get a retained profit mortgage. You may have a smaller deposit as a first time buyer, and this shouldn’t be a problem either – you should still be able to qualify for a standard residential product.
