We are authorised to arrange loans under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009 (National Credit Act). The National Credit Act regulates the activity of lending, leasing, and finance broking.

Under the National Credit Act, we are obliged to ensure that any loan or principal increase to a loan we help you to obtain is suitable to your needs and objectives. To decide this, we are required to conduct a Preliminary Assessment to determine if the loan is suitable. The law requires us to:

  • make reasonable inquiries about your requirements and objectives;
  • make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation; and
  • take reasonable steps to verify that financial situation.

Credit will be deemed unsuitable if at the time of the assessment, it is likely that at the time the credit is provided:

  • you could not pay or could only pay with substantial hardship; or
  • the credit will not meet your requirements and objectives.

When we make our assessment, it is important that we utilise information that is accurate, complete, and up to date. If we are supplied with incomplete or incorrect information, you may be in breach of your legal obligations to the lender.

If we provide you with credit assistance, you can ask us for a copy of our Preliminary Assessment any time up to 7 years after we provide you with credit assistance. To request a copy please contact us and we will provide you with a copy:

  • within 7 business days after the day we receive your request – provided you make the request within 2 years of the date when we provide you with credit assistance; or
  • otherwise, within 21 business days after the day we receive your request.

We are committed to providing you with the best possible service. If at any time we have not met our obligations or you have a complaint about the service that we provide, please inform us so we can work towards a resolution. We will endeavour to deal with your complaint promptly, thoroughly, and fairly. If you have a complaint, the following steps are available to you.

We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint within 1 business day. If your Broker is unable to resolve the complaint to your satisfaction within 5 business days, we will escalate the complaint to the Complaints Officer. You can also contact the Complaints Officer directly as detailed below:
