How do lenders assess BAS Statements?
The vast majority of lenders add up the “G1” figure (total sales) for the last four quarters and then include 40% of this figure in their assessment or the income that you have declared, whichever is lower.
Some lenders use 50% of the total sales or use a different percentage, depending on which industry your business is in.
One of our lenders has a slightly more in depth analysis and deducts the costs & wage expenses to calculate a more accurate figure of your income.
If some of your wages were paid to you as the director/owner of a business, then this lender may consider adding this wage expense back.
Lenders also look at whether you have made a loss in any particular quarter, in order to see if your income fluctuates significantly.
In such cases, some lenders may request evidence that you have paid your GST instalment.
