We have the right Self-Employed Mortgage to suit your unique needs.

If you are self-employed, work on commission or are on contract, there are several things you need to be aware of that can affect your ability to qualify for a mortgage.

If you’re self-employed you have likely faced challenges when attempting to obtain financing to start or expand your business.

New borrowing restrictions for self-employed persons introduced in early 2010 make it even more challenging to obtain a mortgage.

Small businesses are catalysts for job creation, however, the financing needed to fund the growth of these companies and create the jobs to strengthen the Canadian economy is always challenging to obtain.

Despite the challenges, many Canadians have left the workforce behind and are using their expertise to create businesses of their own. This way of life is appealing to more and more people as it provides a means of taking control of your own income while having the residual effect of creating jobs for others as the new business grows.

Tax Advantages Can Become Disadvantages

As a business owner, you can deduct many of your expenses from your income to reduce the amount of income taxes that you pay.

This is good for your taxes; however, banks look at the income on your Notice of Assessment. This reduced income (at least on paper) then makes it difficult to demonstrate your ability to make the debt payments, including loans and/or mortgage payments.

If you have an established business and have regularly taken a substantial amount of income from your company then you can prove that the amount of taxable income is sufficient to pay your monthly obligations.

If however, you are recently self-employed or do not show a lot taxable income on your Notice of Assessment, then we can help.
