In other words, in low doc loans less financial supporting documentation needs to be provided. Usually, it is for borrowers who do not have PAYG pay slip records or financial statements and tax returns. Until low doc home loans came along, home ownership with a mortgage for the self-employed was very difficult.  

A person or a small organization with a fluctuating income or whose business activity statement (BAS) doesn’t look solid results in increasechances of loan application getting rejected. Lenders or banks require borrowers to provide at least two years personal tax returns, profit and loss statements, balance sheets and an accountant’s letter supporting their financial position.
