Our Credit Services:
We will assist you to select a loan or lease to meet your needs. The credit providers we most commonly use are Pepper Money, Plenti, Secure Funding (Liberty), Latitude Financial Services, Macquarie Leading and Money 3, although we do use others.
Information We Will Require From You:
We are obliged to ensure any loan or lease we suggest or assist you to apply for, including an increase to an existing credit limit, is not unsuitable for your purposes. This includes if the loan or lease does not meet your requirements or objectives, if you are unable to make the repayments, or you could only do so with substantial hardship. Therefore, we will need some information from you. It is important that the information you provide is entirely accurate.
Copies of Our Assessment:
At any time within 7 years of us providing you with credit assistance, you may request a copy of the preliminary credit assessment. We will provide you with this documentation within 7 business days of receiving your request. However, if your request is more than 2 years after the date of our Credit Quote, we may take up to 21 business days after receiving the request.
Fees Payable By You To Us:
We may charge you up to $1,990 (incl. GST) as an Origination Fee for our services when providing credit assistance, although this is only payable should the loan proceed. It is a one-off fee, payable at loan settlement. This fee may be paid directly to use, or part of the loan disbursements. If via loan disbursement, this will increase your loan by the fee amount.
Fees Payable By You To Third Parties:
When the application for a loan or lease is submitted and ultimately proceeds to settlement, you may be required to pay fees to third parties associated with the application, such as the credit provider’s application fee, security registration fee, inspection fee or other fees. If applicable, these will be detailed in the Credit Proposal document and provided to you before you apply for finance. You can ask us how they are worked out.
Commissions Received By Us:
Commissions may be payable to us by the credit provider for any loan or lease that is settled. The amount varies between lenders and the amount of credit that you receive. These are not directly payable by you and these will be disclosed within the Credit Proposal document that will be provided to you before applying for finance. You can ask us for an estimate of these commissions and how they are worked out.
Commissions Payable By Us:
If you are referred to us by a third party, we may pay that entity a commission for the introduction of your business. For example, we may pay commissions to real estate agents, car or boat dealerships and accountants. These commissions are not directly payable by you. You can ask us for an estimate of these payments and how they are worked out.
We hope that you’re pleased with our service, although if you do have a complaint you can contact our Complaints Officer on phone – 1300 404 300 and email [email protected] or mail to the address listed above in ‘Key Information’.
