Self-Employed/Business-for-Self (BFS) Solutions
While many Canadians take advantage of self-employment opportunities, those who are self-employed sometimes face roadblocks when they are in the market to obtain personal financing, such as a mortgage or vehicle loan.
Proving Self-Employed/Business for Self (BFS) income, and income stability, can be difficult for new business owners.
Many Canadians (15.3% in 2018 according to Statistics Canada) have successful small business ventures. Those that do would not trade the lifestyle for anything. But, this lifestyle requires planning before you first attempt to obtain financing for their home, or even something as simple as a new credit card or vehicle. The nature of self-employment income can sometimes leave the self-employed looking like poor credit risks, even though they may actually have a more stable source of income than those who are working for an employer.
