Over 2 million people are self employed in Australia. Here at Advantage Finance, we believe that if you're a part of this massive segment of the population then you have the right to a fair go when applying for a home loan.
Unfortunately because of the nature of self employment, you might not have the payslips, employment contracts and regular income that most lenders like to see. So what are your options?
Low documentation loans
Making a living off your own ingenuity and hard work is a commendable achievement – that's why we've been offering low documentation (low doc) loans for almost a decade now. With a low doc loan you generally won't have to supply the usual documentation, such as tax returns, financial statements and employee references.
It's a low hassle option for business people who are perfectly reliable but may struggle to be approved on a normal home loan, by a normal lender. We're anything but a normal lender – we know that every person is different so we strive to offer a wide variety of finance solutions to fit every budget.
What are the criteria?
Small businesses and the self employed are the cornerstone of the Australian economy.
Low doc doesn't mean no doc! You still may have to supply a letter from your accountant, a bank statement showing your business income and expenses, or a business activity statement as evidence that you'll be able to repay your loan over time.
If your application is accepted you may pay slightly higher interest on your loan. However, you could be able to borrow up to 85 per cent of your property's value.
