    Is it possible to show the income from shares portfolio for serviceability calculations?

    Most lenders will want to see it in your tax return for two years. Alternatively they will use a 'deeming rate' which is usually not a great return.

    Depends on the lender - some accept it if you can show proof. Although the yield used is typically lower than what you're earning, so its not a good way to increase serviceability.

    As tone mentioned, most lenders will want to see income (dividends) history for 2 years + for it to be used.

    Any loans attached will need to be disclosed. Assessment rate used against it will also vary from lender to lender (most adding some sort of interest buffer over what is paid).

    Cheers,

    Yes. I did. Although in the end it wasn't needed.
