Credit Criteria

QuickCash Finance assesses hundreds of items of data in order to make credit decisions for our NZ loans.

In particular, we adhere to the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act (2003), the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Financing Terrorism Act (2009), and Responsible Lending principles.

We also consider micro and macro economic trends/factors, such as the (ongoing) impact of COVID-19.

The following factors are but some of the factors considered in making our eventual judgments for approving our online loans in NZ. We have listed these to assist our customers and declined applicants in understanding credit decisions for New Zealand loans. However, please be aware that our credit assessment involves both electronic and in-person assessment from hundred of items of data, each of which plays a role in our eventual judgment.
