Can I get car finance if I’m Self Employed?

Contrary to popular opinion, yes, you can get self-employed car finance. Regardless of what your income status is, we’re committed to finding you a deal that suits you best.

A large proportion of the current UK population are self-employed, and whilst the entice of flexi-working, being your own boss and financial freedom there comes a trade-off for financial stability. Your salary is not promised each month and your take home pay may even fluctuate between months.

It is this uncertainty that makes obtaining car finance when you’re self-employed notoriously challenging.

We know your car is important to you, whether it’s getting you to your client meetings or making deliveries, and we’re determined to get you on the road as soon as we can

What do I have to do differently?

One of the key differences when applying for car finance as a self-employed worker is the extra length you’ll need to go to, in order to demonstrate your financial status.

Typically, you’ll need to provide and demonstrate stability across a series of working months, minimum of 3. You can do this by providing bank statements or using open banking for your lender to understand your income and expenditures.

As with all financial products, you’ll also need to demonstrate reliability through a strong credit score. Even if you have a bad credit or have a few hits on your credit profile, we can still help you find a deal that’s right for you.

How can I maximise my chances of being approved?

There are a few steps which we can strongly recommend that will increase your chances of securing a car finance deal:

Checking your credit score By checking your credit score regularly you can ensure that you have an idea of what your credit status is like, identify any mistakes or errors and work on areas that can be improved. There are many ways in which you can improve your credit score, such as using credit cards and registering on the electoral roll (see below).

Prepare your proof of income If you’re in employment you’ll likely have payslips, otherwise you’ll need to provide 3 months minimum of bank statements. It can be helpful to clean up your bank statements, remove any non-essential subscriptions, evaluate if there are any outgoings that can be stopped. If your income is arriving in multiple instalments, ensure you label and identify these accordingly or try to merge them into one payment for ease.

Register on the electoral roll It’s free and allows you to confirm your name and address online. It is one of the first things that lenders look at when evaluating your finance application and will help you gain approval for a finance product.

Increase your deposit Putting down a larger payment upfront may reduce the amount you need to borrow making it more likely for lenders to approve your application.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a proof of income a requirement for car finance?

Yes. In all cases, your lender requires information about your financial status before taking the risk to provide you with a loan. This is typically payslips but as a self-employed worker you’ll need to provide this in a different way, either bank statements or via open banking.

Will my repayments be higher if I have bad credit?

The rate and amount to borrow you’ll be offered for self-employed car finance will depend on a range of factors including your credit score, how much you’d like to borrow and the car you’d like to buy. Whilst having a bad credit score might mean you won’t get offered the same rates as those with good credit scores, it doesn’t mean it isn’t possible entirely.
