Updates to contractor lending criteria


Following recent IR35 rule changes, we wanted to let you know that we accept contracts that fall within IR35 rules. We also accept contract income received via a payroll services (umbrella) company.

When a contractor is paid via an umbrella company, or falls inside IR35 and receives payslips, we need to see the last two months’ payslips in addition to standard documentation. Any statutory employer costs (including employer NI contributions and Apprenticeship Levy) and any payroll service costs are deducted from gross pay before we multiply gross pay by 46 weeks.

If you’ve got any questions, you can get in touch with your Business Development Manager or dedicated Regional Service Team.
