Alt-Doc Loans: Self-employed lending solutions


By Adrian Fisher July 21, 2017

At RedZed we know the circumstances of the self-employed are as diverse as the Aussies running them. So we’re proud to offer a unique lending solution to ensure the business ambition of the nearly one in ten Aussies who are self-employed, isn’t stopped in its tracks by the boxes the banks need to tick.

The low down

In a nutshell, Alt-Doc loans are a flexible way for self-employed borrowers to use different forms of income verification to apply for loans. For Brokers on the other side of the equation, they’re a modern lending solution allowing them to tap into this growing segment of Aussies and gain an advantage in a rapidly- shifting marketplace.

Collaboration is key

Legislation adds a foundation of security and peace of mind to this process. The National Consumer Credit Protection Act (NCCP) means that there is a clear framework to ensure that a borrower’s needs are appropriately addressed, including the diversity of their needs and circumstances. While brokers and lenders follow a process of ‘reasonable enquiry’ to determine the suitability of lending for that borrower’s individual circumstance.

Liberating Ambition

As this market continues to grow, confidence is key for both parties.

At RedZed, clients are, through their trusted broker, included at every step so to fully understand our evaluations and contribute to our lending assessments. This ensures our offerings accurately reflect their circumstances and ensure that we do not lose crucial detail by applying blanket rules. We believe this personally tailored approach can foster strong relationships between brokers and the self-employed, allowing both parties to find solutions that are not suited to automated credit scoring decisions.
