Alpha Finance Credit Guide

Introduction
This Credit Guide gives you important information about us, the products we provide and how will be assessed.

Our general obligations
We will not, as a credit provider enter into a credit card contract with you if we assess that the credit contract is likely to be unsuitable for you. We refer to this assessment as the Suitability Assessment.

How we assess you
We will ask you a series of questions in relation to your income and expenses,  and will also ask for supporting documentation to verify this.

When will the credit contract be unsuitable?
A credit contract will be unsuitable if:

  • The credit contract does not meet your requirements or objectives; or
  •  It is likely that you will be unable to comply with your financial obligations under the credit contract; or
  •  It is likely that you could only comply with your financial onligations under the credit contract with substantial hardship.

How can you access a copy of the Suitability Assessment
If your application for credit or increase in credit has been approved, you can call us on 1300 257 426 or email us on [email protected] and request a written copy of the Suitability Assessment which we will provide free of charge.
