We think purchasing and lending got way too complicated somewhere along the way. We are here to help make the lending process better by providing you with REAL solutions. We say it how is, in your terms and on your terms.
Self-employed individuals play an important role in the economy of Australia and Connected Loans understand your homeownership aspirations and can even help you get the best deal when it comes to self-employed loans.
In most cases, lenders will use the last 2 years tax returns and add back things like depreciation to assess your available income. Each lender has a different method to calculate your available income and what expenses they will add back. This is where Connected Loans can help you navigate your most suitable options.
Some lenders will take an average of the last two 2 years, whilst some will use the most recent year. Some will allow depreciation to be added back along with superannuation and one-off expenses, whilst others may only use a portion.
Lenders will use different types of documents to verify your self-employed income. Document requirements are typically put into two categories which are often referred to as Full Documentation and Alt Documentation.
For a Full Documentation Loan a lender may ask for:
For an Alt Documentation Loan a lender may ask for:
Although you are self-employed, if you can satisfy the Full Documentation requirements, you can still borrow almost all types of loan – in the same way as PAYG borrower can. The only difference will be in the requirements you will provide.
For an Alt Documentation Loan, you will need to apply for a specific type of loan. These types of loans have different interest rates, fee and lending criteria.
