Low-Doc With Bank Statements

When you are applying for a low-doc loan, some lenders may require you to provide more documents to verify your income. The most common and simplest way is to providing bank statements of your business account. However, not all lenders accept this type of document. For example, the major banks do not accept the bank statements as evidence of income.

General criteria:
  • Employment: you must be self employed
  • ABN: your ABN must be registered for at least 1 year.
  • GST: you must be registered for GST for minimum 6 months.
  • Statements: 3 to 6 month bank statements are required, depending on the lender that you choose.
  • Loan amount: you can borrow up to 80 per cent of the property value.
