About this Guide

This document provides information about the services we provide. We ​are ​licensed ​to ​provide ​credit assistance ​under ​the National ​Consumer ​Credit ​Protection ​Act ​2009 ​(Cth) ​(NCCP​ ​Act​).

We provide ‘credit assistance’ when we:

– suggest ​or ​assist ​you ​to ​apply ​for ​a ​particular ​credit ​contract ​with ​a ​financier; ​and/or,

– suggest ​or ​assist ​you ​to ​apply ​for ​an ​increase ​to ​an ​existing ​credit ​contract ​with ​a ​financier; ​and/or,

– suggest ​you ​remain ​in ​a ​particular ​credit ​contract ​with ​a ​

This guide will tell you about:

– who ​we ​are; and,

– how ​you ​can ​contact ​us; and,

– the ​services ​we ​provide; and, how ​we ​assess ​suitability; and,

– fees ​payable ​by ​you ​and ​commission ​received ​by ​us; ​and,

– what ​to ​do ​if ​you ​are ​unhappy ​with ​us ​or ​our ​products

Suitability Assessment

Under ​the NCCP ​Act, ​we ​are ​obliged ​to ​ensure ​that ​any ​credit ​product ​or ​any ​limit ​increase ​we ​recommend and ​arrange ​is ​not ​unsuitable ​for ​you. ​To ​help ​us ​make ​sure ​we ​do ​not ​offer ​you ​something ​that ​is unsuitable, ​we ​will ​ask ​you ​some ​questions ​so ​we ​can ​make ​a ​ Preliminary ​Assessment, ​for ​example:

– details ​of ​your ​financial ​and ​personal ​situation; and,

– information ​about ​your ​requirements ​and ​objectives; ​and,

– your ​ability ​to ​repay ​the ​loan ​that ​you ​are ​considering

We ​will ​then ​verify ​the ​information ​you ​provided ​and ​make ​a ​Preliminary ​Assessment. ​ We ​must ​find ​a credit ​product ​or ​limit ​increase ​unsuitable ​for ​you ​if:

– you ​will ​be ​unable ​to ​meet ​your ​financial ​commitments ​under ​the ​contract ​without ​substantial hardship; ​or,

– the contract ​will ​not ​meet ​your ​requirements ​and ​objectives

It ​is ​therefore ​very ​important ​that ​the ​information ​you ​provide ​us ​is ​accurate. ​Even ​if ​we ​recommend ​any credit ​product ​to ​you, ​it ​is ​important ​that ​you ​consider ​whether ​the ​product ​will ​be ​right ​for ​you ​and ​whether you ​are ​comfortable ​that ​you ​will ​be ​able ​to ​meet ​your ​commitments ​under ​the ​contract.

If ​we ​assist ​you ​into ​a ​credit ​contract ​or ​limit ​increase, ​you ​can ​ask ​us ​for ​a ​copy ​of ​your ​Preliminary ​Assessment. We ​must ​give ​you ​a ​copy ​of ​it ​within ​seven ​(7) ​days ​if ​the ​request ​is ​within ​the ​first ​two ​(2) ​years ​post completion ​of ​the ​document, ​or ​within ​21 ​days ​if ​the ​request ​is ​after ​two ​(2) ​years ​but ​before ​seven ​(7) years ​after ​it ​has ​been ​prepared. ​There ​is ​no ​charge ​for ​requesting ​or ​receiving ​a ​copy ​of ​the ​Preliminary Assessment.
