Let Us Help
In 2011, the National Consumer Credit Protection (NCCP) Act commenced. Since then, the requirements for businesses and individuals offering credit services have continued to evolve. These evolutions have unfortunately caused confusion. Our business was founded on the simple premise of helping to de-mystify such legislative requirements and to empower finance brokers to build sustained success without such confusion and concern.
Whether it be Responsible Lending or Best Interest Duty, conducting credit activities comes with strict duties. These apply to both lenders and brokers.
SalesKey offers compliance support packages that can assist you in maintaining registration and licencing. Our dedicated Australian-based experts guide you in meeting your business’ obligations under the Australian Credit Licence laws and regulations.
Our experienced team can assist with all areas of NCCP Compliance, including documentation, policies, and procedures, and more.
As part of your Responsible Lending obligations, you are required to undertake specific steps, particularly in learning more about your clients and their objectives and circumstances.
It’s more than simply knowing who your client is and their objectives. You need to make reasonable enquiries regarding the consumer’s situation, goals, and requirements. You also have to verify the information given to you and ultimately you need to make a proper assessment of loan suitability.
Those responsibilities can be demanding, but SalesKey is here to make the job less complicated. We have partnered with a top consumer law firm and with their legal expertise, combined with our industry knowledge, we have developed the following document templates that we can customise for your business:
Each document delivered is ultimately tailored specifically for your business but are ALWAYS compliant with NCCP legislation
ACL General Obligation
Policies & Procedures
As a credit licence holder, you're required by law to implement compliance measures in your business and have these documented. Every year, when you renew your ACL, you declare to ASIC that you have this in place. Do you really have these? If not, you risk large fines.
Here at SalesKey, we know how frustrating it is to deal with a one-size-fits-all approach. It's why we offer customised policies and procedures that suit the size, model, and operations of your financial business. We will prepare your procedure manual, which covers General Conduct Obligations, including:
Arrangements for ensuring legislative compliance at all time
Provisions for dealing with conflicts of interest
Proper structures for training and competence programs
How to appoint, monitor and train your staff and credit representatives
How you handle disputes
Availability of HR, IT and Financial resources
Adherence to Responsible Lending and Best Interests Duty legislation.
All procedures above are tailored to your business, making up documentation that the ASIC requires for ACL holders and applicants, PLUS creating a practical operating manual for your business and staff to follow.
Complement manual documentation and close oversight with technology.

Working in the finance industry has never been just a job for us. It has always been our passion to assist businesses, especially in grasping the complexities of compliance regulations. For years, we’ve dedicated ourselves to study, understand, and implement the ASIC requirements to our own firms. This time, we’re doing our best to disperse essential information to others in the finance and credit industries.

These processes are devised to ensure you are confident with your business and actions as you stay 100% compliant with the ACL law.
