How To: Download my ITR to give to the lender to apply for SME financing


When you’re applying for SME business financing, either using CreditEnable’s technology platform or directly with the lender, you need to submit your Income Tax Returns (ITR) acknowledgement and Computation of Income along with your loan application.

Your Income Tax Return–Verification (ITR-V) form is a single-page document that the Income Tax Department automatically generates when you submit your income tax returns without a digital signature. It helps verify the authenticity of your income tax returns, and you must download, sign, and send a hard copy of the document to the Income Tax CPC in Bangalore to complete your income tax filing process.

Find instructions on how to submit your ITR-V to the ITR CPC here.

You can also do the verification process online (ITR-V EVC) using your email id and mobile number, Aadhaar card, net banking, ATM, bank account details, or your Demat account.

When you apply for SME business financing, lenders require you to submit your ITR acknowledgement, as it is a document used in their risk assessment of every applicant. It indicates to lenders that you run your business responsibly and you fulfil your tax obligations dutifully.

Such financially responsible behaviour, along with other factors, such as your financial history, credit score and bureau report, and your business sector, impact your creditworthiness when you apply for SME business financing with a formal lender.
