Are you considering upgrading your truck? What about remodeling your home, or even buying a new home? These are big financial decisions that will often require a loan. As a self-employed individual, the process of obtaining a loan can involve more steps.

Now that you’re self-employed, you do not have pay stubs or W-2s that show your annual income. With this being the case, lenders may request a compilation of financial statements that include a current balance sheet showing your assets and liabilities and a current profit & loss statement showing your income and expenses. They may also request your previous two years’ tax returns and verification letters related to your financial wellbeing or creditworthiness. If you’re in the market for a loan, Abacus can assist you with these lender requests. Abacus can compile financial statements, including a current profit & loss statement, for you to provide to your lender. Abacus can also assist you in preparing prior year tax returns as well.
