How do I get a loan if I'm self-employed
RedZed specialises in providing alternative lending solutions to self-employed customers that generally find it hard to obtain loans through the traditional banking systems. RedZed look beyond your credit score, we listen to your individual situation and work on a solution that fits your circumstances. With our alternative document options, we can help you pursue your financing needs.
What self-employed income documents are accepted?
RedZed is a flexible solutions-based lender. We accept full financial documentation such as your latest tax returns and/or your latest two payslips. We also accept Alternative Documentation (Alt Doc) where you provide your income via an income declaration form, then include income evidence in the form of Business Account Statements (BAS) or an Accountant’s Declaration.
How much deposit do I need?
RedZed can lend up to 80% of the market value of the property. This means you would need a minimum of a 20% deposit + stamp duty (if applicable). RedZed calculate your borrowing capacity based on factors including your total income, expenses, current credit exposure and your credit history (not score).
What are RedZed's interest rates?
RedZed will look to provide its applicable interest rate based on your circumstances. The interest rate will vary depending on your individual situation. This includes the income evidence provided, loan amount you need to borrow, property value (Loan-to-Value ratio), your credit history, repayment type (including principal and interest or interest only) and the purpose of your loan. RedZed’s expert Lending Managers can provide you an indicative lending proposal outlining the interest rate before you complete an application.
What are the fees and charges?
While government fees (eg, Stamp duty) apply to all RedZed loans, our fees and charges vary depending on the loan and circumstances. Our expert Lending Managers will do their best to find a solution for you to achieve the best possible combination of loan, rate and fees and charges. A summary of residential fees can be found here.
