We’ve updated our policy to help self-employed borrowers impacted by Covid-19
Covid-19 has impacted the finances of so many, whether through unemployment, reduced working hours or the furlough scheme. Whilst the government has offered temporary financial support to those affected, the true cost of the pandemic is still unfolding and will continue to do so for some months.
For some of your clients just getting through the next day or week is hard enough and that’s why we’ve updated our credit policy to further support self-employed borrowers who have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The update will apply to applicants who have experienced more than a 10% reduction in business income as a result of the pandemic, but who have since seen their company earnings bounce back to pre-Covid levels.
Helping you help your clients
For self-employed borrowers in this position, we will use the applicant’s 2019/2020 income where they can demonstrate earnings in the most recent three months have returned to that level. We will also consider how the applicant’s business was affected by the pandemic, the sustainability of the applicant’s income and whether any government support loans have been received.
