We understand the challenges faced by self-employed individuals when applying for a mortgage to finance the purchase of a home or to refinance an existing loan. When self-employed borrowers contact MortgageDepot, one of the most frequent concerns we hear has to do with lenders requiring bank statements to qualify for the financing our borrowers need. We have a solution for these borrowers with a mortgage program using profit and loss to qualify for the loan.

Profit and loss statements

A profit and loss statement offers a method of showing the net income of a business by taking into account its revenue and offsetting expenses. It is a tool for a self-employed owner of a business or professional practice to evaluate profitability and determine the most effective means of improving it through a manipulation of revenues and expenses.

Income tax returns and bank statements may not accurately reflect the income of a self-employed individual. The reason for this relates to the common practice of deducting business expenses to reduce a business owner’s personal income tax liability. This is why borrowers at MortgageDepot may benefit by using a profit and loss to qualify for the loan instead of relying on bank statements and income tax returns.
