Prior to the credit crunch if you were self employed you were often able to get what were called self-certification loans, which allowed people to declare their own income by making a personal statement of what they were earning. During the credit crunch lenders will have seen some customers struggling with managing their bills, which may explain why some lenders have now tightened up to some degree, including lending to the self employed. However the market is still robust but quite rightly lenders now require more detail of income, in the interests of affordability.

Loans For Self Employed

Loans for self employed people can be difficult to get for a number of reasons, but First Choice Finance is on hand to help you obtain the money you need.

If you`re a contractor or you work for yourself in another capacity, such as a sole trader, lenders may be reticent to provide you with loans as they can`t be certain what your income will be in the long-term, even if you may be earning a good wage at present.

Even if you have a history of earning more than enough to pay off your self-employed loan, only a small proportion of it may be technically classed as a "wage", with the rest being dividends or bonuses that some lenders don`t take into account when they`re doing their calculations.

As a result of these kinds of policies, self employed consumers may miss out on loans which can help them renovate their homes, consolidate some debts, pay for an overdue stress busting holiday, treat their kids or buy themselves a new vehicle.

However, because First Choice Finance has access to many plans in the market and have known many of the providers for years, we can help get you the money you require.

All you need to do is give us a few details and we`ll do the rest, regardless of your previous credit history we will always try to help and some plans do actually allow for clients who have been unfortunate enough to incur bad credit.

We`ll come back to you with a free quote on a product that you fit for and offer it to you on a no-obligation basis.

You then choose whether to go ahead or not.
