    Hi,

    A quick question for mortgage brokers, I'm an ABN holder and trying to get the documentation together so I can successfully submit a loan application for a shop.

    My question is I lease a shop and pay a fair amount each month in rent (lets call it $R), but when I submit my tax return the income used to pay the rent becomes a valid tax deduction and disappears from my income (rightly so), so my serviceability drops by $R (taxable income = gross income - expenses). Is there a way to get the bank to understand that my income for repaying any loan is taxable income + $R, because I wont be paying rent if I have my own shop? To put another way, the money I pay in rent reduces my taxable income, but will be used to pay the mortgage.

    This might not be clear, so let me know if I need to explain things a bit better.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    No

    Banks go on profit and not turn over.

    The rent you previo paid will be added back to increase your taxable income
    .

    It's called an ad back

    Rolf, is that done by the bank when assessing serviceability?

    Its part of a normal Self employed assessment
