Credit Guide for Wisr Finance Pty Ltd
ACN 119 503 221
Australian Credit Licence 458572
This document provides information about the loans provided by us. We are licensed to provide loans under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009 (NCCP Act). The NCCP Act regulates the activity of lending, leasing, and finance broking.
Wisr is committed to operating as a good corporate citizen. This includes having and implementing an industry recognised dispute resolution framework and we have appointed a senior manager specifically to handle any problems you may have while a customer of Wisr.
Under the NCCP Act, we are obliged to ensure that any loan that we provide to you is not unsuitable for you. To decide this, we may need to ask you some questions in order to assess whether the loan is not unsuitable. The law requires us to:
- make reasonable inquiries about your requirements and objectives;
- make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation;
- take reasonable steps to verify that financial situation.
Providing a loan will be regarded as unsuitable if at the time of the assessment it seems likely that when the loan is made:
- you could not pay or could only pay the monthly instalments with substantial hardship;
- the loan provided will not meet your requirements and objectives.
For example, if you can only repay the loan by selling your principal place of residence, it is presumed that the loan will cause substantial hardship unless the contrary is proved. For this reason we must ask you to provide a significant amount of information. It is therefore very important that the information you provide to us is accurate.
If you ask us, we must provide you with a copy of our credit assessment of your application at any time up to seven years from the date of the loan contract. We are only required to give you a copy of the credit assessment if you enter into a loan contract.

Things you should know
We don’t provide legal or financial advice. It is important that you understand your legal obligations under the loan, and the financial consequences.
Before you accept your loan offer, make sure you read the loan agreement carefully to understand the full details, costs and ramifications of the loan. If you have any doubts, you should obtain independent legal and financial advice before you enter any loan contract.
