Responsible Lending

Our Commitment To You As A Responsible Lender

Oz Cash Loans prides itself on being a responsible lender.

We always act in the best interests of our customers. We make sure that every loan we offer is affordable for our customers, and every loan meets their needs, objectives, and requirements.

We are committed to responsible lending practices and follow the following guiding principles:

  1. We always make reasonable inquiries about the customer’s financial situation, and their requirements and objectives.
  2. We always take reasonable steps to verify the customer’s financial situation.
  3. We always review the last 90 days of your bank transaction history.
  4. We always independently check your income and expenses.
  5. We always enquire as to the purpose of your loan in order to make a final assessment (as the credit provider) about whether the credit contract is ‘not unsuitable’ for the customer. Based on the enquiries and verifications that we’ve made, we won’t offer you a loan if we believe it’s unsuitable for you.
  6. We always encourage our customers to notify us if they find themselves in financial difficulty.
  7. We may refer you to the government’s website www.moneysmart.gov.au if we believe that you might benefit from their sound financial guidance.
