What are loans for self-employed people?

Loans for the self-employed are exactly as they sound – they’re loans for people who work for themselves. Borrowing money can be more difficult if you’re self-employed, but Evolution Money may be able to help.

We help countless self-employed people access the finance they need. We’ll look at your overall personal and financial circumstances to judge whether a loan is affordable and offer payment terms to suit your unique situation.

What types of self-employed loans are available?

There are a few different types of self-employed loans in the UK.

  • Personal loans for self-employed people are designed for personal use, like home improvements, new cars and debt consolidation.
  • Self-employed business loans are designed for business purposes, like investing in your premises, buying new equipment or boosting your marketing.
  • Secured self-employed loans are ‘secured’ by valuable assets such as property, whereas unsecured loans are not. Offering security can improve your chances of getting finance and accessing higher loan amounts.

We offer secured loans for the self-employed with no guarantor required, and you can use them for a wide range of business and personal reasons.

What about loans for self-employed people with bad credit?

Getting finance can be even trickier if you’re self-employed and have a less-than-perfect credit score – but we look at more than just your credit and income history. You could still get a self-employed loan with poor credit if we’re confident you can afford the repayments.

We offer no-obligation quotes, so if you’re a homeowner and working for yourself, use our to see how we can help.

What repayment terms are available on a self-employed loan?

Our self-employed loans for UK residents come with repayment terms of between 1 and 20 years. The right term for you will depend on your preferences and financial situation. Choosing a shorter term usually means you’ll pay less in interest, whereas longer term loans come with smaller monthly repayments.

You can use our handy online loan form and discuss with one of our expert advisers to see what your repayments might be with different term lengths.

How soon could I get my loan?

We always aim to fund approved loans as quickly as possible. In the past, we have been able to transfer funds to customers within a few days of their application being approved, but this will depend on how quickly we receive all your documentation, among other factors.
