Hi Hutchy,

I've done some quick calculations and you are right on the border of serviceability. The issue that I can see is that your recent GST registration will be an issue for most lenders. We do have some lenders that may be able to assist with this at an excellent rate however I can't be 100% sure we will get an approval. In many cases if we can get a letter from your accountant to confirm your estimate income (can have disclaimers in it) and the letter mentions that you should have been GST registered some time previously however were not aware that you needed to be GST registered then it should be ok.

Please call us on 1300 889 743 to discuss the loan in detail with one of our brokers.
