Self-employed Halifax Intermediaries customers will now only need to supply two years’ of information about their income – down from three.
Applications from those who have been self-employed for less than two years but at least one full year will still be considered by an underwriter.
Ian Wilson, head of Halifax Intermediaries, said: “There are almost five million self-employed workers in the UK and almost 40% of employment growth has come from the self-employed or small business owners over the last decade.
“Adapting our policy to support self-employed people is part of our ongoing commitment to making it easier for brokers to do business with this key market segment.”
