Income Confirmation Letter

What Is An Income Confirmation Letter?

An income confirmation letter is written by an accountant confirming earnings/income of:

  • a director of a company who is also the shareholder of the same company
  • self employed, sole proprietors, partners in a partnership or
  • member(s) of a close corporation.

The purpose of the letter is to provide an independent confirmation of the above-mentioned earnings. Normally the accountant will identify and add up all the drawings made by the owner(s)/member(s) from the company for the private use. The accountant will then determine, the monthly average of the drawings over the period. The periods maybe over 12 months, 6 months or 3 months. It all depends on the purpose the letter is needed for.

The income confirmation letter is also known as:
