Enhanced self-employed policy

Great news! We have refreshed how we assess self‑employed applicants whilst maintaining a common‑sense approach.

Self‑employed highlights
  • NEW- Profit before taxation plus directors remuneration can now be used. An average is taken over the last 2 years if 100% of shareholders are on the mortgage and sustainability of the business can be confirmed
  • Salary & Dividends can be used. An average of last 2 years where sustainability can be evidenced
  • Partnerships/Sole traders – We use a 2 year average of profit from self‑employment where sustainability can be evidenced
  • All businesses must have been trading for a minimum 3 of years
  • 6 months business bank statements are required on all self‑employed cases to confirm the sustainability of the business
  • Maximum LTV is 95% LTV; 80% where SIESS grants have been taken in the last 6 months

For full details on the points above or to discuss a potential case, please call your BDM and refer to our Mortgage Lending Criteria Guide.

Documentation requirements can be found on our product guides.
