What Are Self-Employed Loans?

A self-employed loan is essentially finance and loans for individuals who are sole traders, freelancers or have their own small business. A loan for self-employed business owners can provide entrepreneurs with the opportunities for personal and business loans that the banks may not be able to help with.

For most Australian business owners, self-employed loans are a fantastic option. This form of finance is tailored to your situation and doesn’t discriminate based on lack of documentation or credit score.

Self-Employed Short-Term Loan

There comes a time in every self-employer person’s career that cash flow gets tight. On paper you look great, you have been flat out, with plenty of work and you have a lot of new projects in the pipeline. The problem is you are waiting to be paid, and cash is very tight.

We can offer self employed short-term loans to tide you over, until your client’s pay you in full or you finish that massive project with a big payout at the end.

It’s a fact of life that sometimes clients can stretch COD to 30 days and some clients, often larger ones, can stretch 30 days to 90 days. While it’s important to keep pushing for payment you also don’t want to go under waiting for payment in the meantime.

Non-Bank Lenders for the Self-Employed

Your traditional banking institution needs verifiable, predictable income, especially for large loans. Unfortunately, self-employed income varies month-to-month or even year-to-year, making it hard for a bank to lend. 

Typically in a bank situation, you’re required to provide your tax verification, income statements, financial statements, proof of cash or assets and your credit file. For these reasons, self-employed loans are not commonly available from the banks. Even if you have impeccable credit, a financial institution can deny you because of unreliable income!

Self-Employed Finance FAQ's

According to the Australian Bureau of statistics, 60% of small businesses fail within the first 3 years. While cashflow can be hard to come by at first, getting a loan when self-employed can be even harder. This means that when a business need cash to cover expenses and gather some momentum, there is often very little support from financial lenders. This is because traditional lenders require extensive documentation in order to prove that there is sufficient income coming in to make the self employed loan repayments. Some of the documentation that traditional lenders, such as banks require includes:

  • 2 years of financial statements
  • 2 years of company tax returns
  • 2 years of tax office assessment notices

Australian Lending Centre is here to support small businesses and provide them with the greatest chance of survival. We understand that being self-employed can make getting this documentation hard to come by, particularly if you have been formed for less than 2 years. For this reason, we provide flexible loans tailored to suit you. We want your business to succeed and for you to receive your funds quickly with ease and confidence.

Get in touch with Australian Lending Centre today for your low doc self-employed personal loan and set your business up for success.
