I've just started a new general contractor business and it's time for me to buy a work van. The company is about a month or so out from starting to take on jobs. My question is: What's the best way for me to obtain a vehicle loan? I understand my business is too new to qualify for one, so it looks like I'll be buying the van personally. I have great credit scores – all in the 800's, but I have not yet taken a pay check to be able to show my income to the lender. When applying for the loan, should I show my projected annual income when they ask? How does this work?
Very rare to have to show POI for a vehicle purchase, even more so with a strong credit score.
I cannot count how many Vehicles that I purchased without POI.
Granted I did put quite a bit for a down payment at times.
One day you might be able to pay cash.
Good luck on your purchase.
You could still put it in the company name and just co-sign for it.
Use projections... with good scores no one will ask as long as you don't say or write something silly!
i have contactor business (16 yrs) and much lower score than you (739) and did not have to show POI ( new 2020 silverado 2500 in april).....even at 665 i didnt have to show it.....@ 800 i would be shocked
and i put nothing down....its all a write off
credit unions are awesome.....banks were so much more work with higher rates
