THE ASSESSMENT WE NEED TO DO BEFORE GIVING YOU CREDIT

Before we provide credit to you, we assess whether the credit is suitable for you. To do this, we need to;

  • make reasonable inquiries about your requirements and objectives;
  • make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation;
  • take reasonable steps to verify your financial situation and that the credit or increase will meet your requirements and objectives;

We won’t be able to give you credit if our assessment shows that:

  • the credit will not meet your requirements or objectives or
  • you were in default under another small amount credit contract or
  • in the past 90 days, you have two or more small amount credit contracts or.
  • you won’t be able to meet the proposed repayments without substantial hardship;

Under the NCCP Act, it is presumed that, if you could only pay your financial obligations under the contract by selling your principal place of residence, then the loan will cause you substantial hardship, unless the contrary is proved.

If you enter a loan contract with us, you can ask us for a copy of our loan assessment any time up to 7 years. If you make a request within 2 years of entering the loan contract, the copy of our loan assessment will be provided within 7 business days of your request. Otherwise, a copy of the loan assessment will be provided within 21 business days.

*Disclaimer & Example: For our Small Loans of $2,000 or less, an APR (Annual Percentage Rate) doesn't apply. These loans are fee-based only with a term between 62 and 180 days, and so the APR is 0%. The establishment fee is 20% of the amount borrowed and the monthly fee is 4% of the amount borrowed. Representative example: a loan of $1,000 repaid over 3 months equates to a total amount payable of $1,320 comprised of $1,000 principal (amount borrowed), $200 establishment fee and $120 in monthly fees. The maximum comparison rate on loans between $300 and $2000 is 199.43%.
For our Medium Loans between $2,100 and $5,000, with a term between 2 months and 12 months, the maximum Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 48% (Comparison rate 65.6597% p.a.) and there is a $400 Establishment Fee. A Medium Loan of $3,000 borrowed over 1 year would equate to a total amount payable of $4,289 (including a $400 establishment fee).

Under the current legislation, most small personal loan providers don’t charge an annual interest rate (you’ll know this as an APR %). The maximum you will be charged is a flat 20% Establishment Fee and a flat 4% Monthly Fee. The maximum comparison rate on loans between $300 and $2000 is 199.43%. This comparison rate is true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
