Debt Counselling  is one of the best ways to take back control of your finances and become debt free.
 

Are you short-paying or skipping your monthly debt repayments? Do you have to rely on loans, credit cards and store accounts to survive every month? Are you being harassed by debt collectors and scared that you may lose your home, car or other possessions?
 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, do not feel embarrassed or ashamed. There are millions of South Africans in the same situation. How you got to this point is not important right now, what matters is that you are ready to find a solution to your financial problems.

WHAT IS DEBT REVIEW?
 

It is an NCR-monitored debt solution whereby a registered debt counsellor ensures that:
 

  • You will be able to afford your monthly debt repayments as well as your everyday living expenses.

  • You will have lower monthly debt instalments.

  • Your assets will be safe from repossession.

  • You will eventually become debt-free.

WHAT IS THE NCR AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
 

This is an NCR-monitored debt solution, but what is the NCR? It refers to the National Credit Regulator that is responsible for the development and upkeep of an accessible credit market. The regulator also ensures that the practices of debt counsellors, credit bureaux and credit providers remain in line with the National Credit Act (NCA).
