Liabilities Management Tools/ Guidelines

Why is it important to pay financial liabilities on time?

If your circumstances change and you start falling behind on your financial liabilities payments it can be difficult to know what to do. It is important to know that while things can be difficult, you are not alone.

There are quick and easy things you can do and people you can talk with, to help you get your finances back on track.

Even one missed or late payment – particularly those in the last 12 months – can weaken your credit score. If you miss repayments, you may be charged a fee (undertakes to donate to charity) and it can be detrimental to your credit score, making it more difficult to obtain credit in the future.

If you miss repayments on a secured finance like Auto finance or Home finance, your car or property could be at risk of repossession.

We may be compelled to share with credit providers, information with regard to your overdue payments, in which case we shall not be liable in any manner whatsoever to you or any other person for any disclosure of information by us.

This is why it is important to act fast and get immediate help before falling further behind on repayments. Speak to your finance provider and agree a repayment solution

What are some tools for effective debt management?

  • Pay at least the minimum on time to ensure you are within your limit.
  • Increase your repayment amounts
  • Pay on time and stay within your limits.

There may be certain points in the year where you come into extra funds. It could be that you just have some money left over at the end of the month. If this happens, and you are able to make overpayments without any charge or penalty, then you could use that spare money to repay your debt.
