About this credit guide
This document provides you with information about credit National Australia Bank Limited, Australian Credit Licence 230686 (“we”), may provide to you that is regulated under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act.
It contains a summary of certain obligations we have under the Act in relation to such credit and what you should do if you have a complaint or dispute about how we provide the credit.
Information about some key obligations we have
Before entering into a credit contract with you, or increasing a credit limit under an existing credit contract, we must assess if the credit contract or credit limit increase will be unsuitable for you.
To make this assessment, we must make reasonable inquiries about your requirements and objectives for the credit contract or credit limit increase. We must also make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation and take reasonable steps to verify your financial situation.
A credit contract or credit limit increase will be unsuitable if at the time it is being provided to you it is likely that you will be unable to meet your financial obligations (for example, repayments) under the credit contract, or are unable to do so without substantial hardship.
The contract will also be unsuitable if it does not meet your stated requirements or objectives.
If we assess that a proposed credit contract or credit limit increase is unsuitable for you, we cannot provide it to you.
Obtaining a copy of the assessment
You may request a copy of the assessment from us (at no cost to you) if we proceed to provide you with the credit contract or credit limit increase.
You can request a copy of the assessment before entering into the credit contract or obtaining the credit limit increase or at any time up to 7 years after you enter into the credit contract or your credit limit is increased.
If you request a copy within 2 years after you enter into the credit contract or your credit limit is increased, we will provide a copy of the assessment within 7 business days of receiving the request, otherwise we will provide it to you within 21 business days of receiving the request.
To request a copy of the assessment please contact your branch, banker or call us on the number shown at the bottom of this page under ‘Call Us’
Please note that we are not required to provide you with a copy of the assessment where the credit contract or credit limit increase does not proceed.
