Looking for finance through a self-employed application?

Getting finance for self-employed applications can sometimes be tricky.

Not all lenders have the same appetite for self-employed customers and structure their policy accordingly.

In many cases, this means you will face obstacles you didn’t even know existed.

At Empowered Finance, we believe in giving the self-employed a fair go.

If you’re having trouble because of your type of employment or because your income doesn’t tick the right boxes, talk to us and we’ll be there to help.

At Empowered Finance we’ll help you to:

Be prepared

Most lenders ask for proof of employment or in your case, proof of income. Be it tax returns from previous years of operation or business records showing you’ve been paying suppliers.

Get a private lender

If you’ve tried traditional lenders like banks and have failed to secure funding, then it could be the right time to try our panel of lenders. While a bank will reject your application with a computer, we will listen to your situation, prove your income and discuss how to keep your income source as steady as possible.

Get a one-on-one experience

Easy to follow applications and approval, as well as courteous and professional staff. These are the hallmarks of our financial service and have helped our many returning clients over the years.

Get a self-employed loan with with minimal paperwork

Many lenders currently ask for at least three years worth of accounts to prove income before qualifying you for a home loan. We’ll ensure your goals are always heard no matter what your financial background is.

Common issues self-employed applicants face

#1 – Borrowers with impaired credit history

Most start-ups face cash flow problems. This can force business owners to seek multiple sources of credit to close the cash flow gaps. Unfortunately, this may negatively affect the business owner’s credit score.

We can help facilitate a loan for self-employed individuals with bad credit.

#2 – Borrowers with existing business or tax debt

Many lenders will deny you funding if you have any outstanding ATO debts. We offer complimentary advice and free financial consultations if you require assistance.

#3 – Borrowers who are newly self-employed

Self-employed individuals are often declined by lenders who require an active ABN for two or more years. We understand the first year of business is not always profitable which is why we use the current year’s accounts for an income check.

#4 – Borrowers who have not completed their tax returns

Some circumstances can result in fluctuations of taxable business income. Some lenders will tolerate up to 20% variance, others will average your last two years, while others will use the latest year’s returns.

At Empowered Finance, we see ourselves as a solution-based business. We can find a lender that will finance any equipment or home loan needs, regardless of your financial circumstances.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • At Empowered Finance we can help you find both secured and unsecured loans. Self-employed individuals may benefit from our flexible credit criteria for small business needs.

  • Borrowers who have been in business for at least twelve months are considered.

  • We accept different types of self-employed income, including:

    • Wages/salaries
    • Dividends and trust distributions
    • Superannuation contribution in excess of 9%
    • Net profit before tax
    • Add-backs, e.g. depreciation
  • The interest rate you qualify for is determined by a number of factors, such as the size of your deposit, the loan amount requested compared to the property value (loan to value ratio), and the purpose of the loan. At Empowered Finance, we give you access to different loan products and a range of interest rates, depending on your circumstances.

  • A secured loan possesses some form of collateral as security for the money lent. It offers the lender some form of security should you be unable to repay the loan. As a result, lenders are more likely to provide better rates for secured loans.

    Unsecured loans have no security and are secured by the creditworthiness of the borrower. They typically have lower total borrowing and higher interest rates. However, they have no risk to personal property.

Did you know…

You can use the equity in your residential property to access finance for business purposes?

A range of lenders will allow you to refinance your home loan and get cash out for business and/or investment purposes.

This can be an excellent option instead of a traditional Business Loan as the rates and fees of a residential home loan are generally a lot cheaper!

Matt went above and beyond when refinancing our home loans! Having more than one home, it was testing from the start. Matt sorted them out, found us a great deal, saving us thousands of dollars, and was with us every step of the way. It wasn't easy, but Matt handled it with Humour, Professionalism and no doubt, many sleepless nights! He was only ever a phone call or email away, and answered many questions, quickly and efficiently, and always made us feel like we were the mos... t important client. Our refinance certainly put Matt through his paces, and he never once gave up, even when we were ready to admit defeat! I cannot speak highly enough of Matt. Hes worth the phone call.
