Tips from WizWealth Finance

  • When you are a self-employed Australian you usually have to collect and provide more financial documentation than those people who have a salary. A mortgage broker for self-employed people such as ourselves will want things like a balance sheet, loss and profit statements and tax returns as well.

  • If you want to apply for what are known as low doc loans, you will need to have a much higher deposit, such as 20%, because then the lender will see you as less of a risk and might make an exception for you in terms of what documents they expect you to have. Since you have put up more money it is essentially more likely that you will pay off the loan because of all the money you have put into it.

  • When applying for home loans for self-employed individuals some lenders will offer alternative loans where they take into account other alternative paperwork rather than the usual mentioned above when looking at what your income is. They are specialist lenders who might accept an accountant declaration and a recent BAS.

  • It is not uncommon when you are self-employed to have periods of earning that are more sparse. Businesses have their ups and downs, especially when you are newer. This could cause a lender to question you so you need to have an explanation for gaps in your earnings and be upfront and honest with them. When you are applying for self-employed home loans it is very important you are honest about your employment status and what you are earning. Giving incorrect information will backfire and damage your chance of getting a home loan.
