Criteria guide


To be accepted, bonus income must be earned within the last 12 months. Key the full amount and we will apply a 50% weighting.

Evidence required:

  • Most recent 2 months’ or last 8 weeks’ payslips showing the bonus income, or
  • Latest P60, or
  • Annual compensation statement,

and the latest month’s bank statements showing income, expenditure and any rent or mortgage payments.

Only bonus income that has been evidenced will be used.

Where bonuses are received on a biannual, quarterly or more frequent basis, an annualised value should not be assumed and must be evidenced.
