CIS Mortgages

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) allows registered contractors to deduct money from the payments made to subcontractors, with the deductions counting as advance payments towards tax and National Insurance. The scheme also helps subcontractors spread financial liabilities over the financial year. However, it can also make it more challenging to secure a competitive mortgage rate. That’s why it’s so important to speak to an experienced CIS mortgage broker like Create Finance.

    Unlock seriously competitive deals from CIS mortgage lenders

    CIS subcontractors often find it difficult to borrow sufficiently on a mortgage, mainly because mainstream banks base their decision on profit after expenses – treating registered CIS contractors like any other self-employed individual. Some lenders require you to provide two or three years’ worth of accounts to be considered for a mortgage or remortgage. However there are plenty of respectable specialist lenders willing to calculate your affordability based on your CIS day rate before tax.

    How do I qualify for a CIS mortgage?

    All lenders are unique with an ever-evolving criteria, but generally, specialist CIS lenders accept regular payslips as proof of income. Having three years’ worth of accounts can be beneficial, but it’s not always necessary. We know many lenders willing to consider borrowers with 12 months worth of accounts, or even 3 months CIS payslips whilst they have a more sympathetic outlook on borrowers with gaps in employment due to the nature of the work, such as being between contracts or taking a well-deserved holiday. The best way to determine whether a CIS mortgage is right for you is to get in touch with our team. As soon as we learn more about your contracted work, income and mortgage goals, we can begin to narrow down the most cooperative lenders with the best deals for your needs.
