FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Personal Loans, explained

NOW Finance offers unsecured loans, where you can borrow from $5,000 to $50,000, and secured personal loans, where you can borrow from $15,000 to $100,000. A secured loan means you provide an asset as security on the loan.

A personal loan is a loan you can use for just about anything. You can use it to pay for home extensions, debt consolidation or even a holiday. You can get small personal loans or big ones (up to $100,000). You have to repay the loan with interest over a fixed term. NOW Finance offers fixed terms from 18 months to 7 years. For more information, read about how it works.

To get a personal loan in Australia, you first need to select a loan provider. It’s always best to choose a lender with an excellent reputation and glowing customer reviews, such as NOW Finance. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for a personal loan online. Before you dive in, you can use our repayments calculator to calculate your estimated repayments.

Money from a personal loan is not classed as income, and therefore it is not taxable. A personal loan is a debt. If you choose to use the loan money to generate income, then you will have to pay tax on any profit you make.

Usually, you cannot transfer your personal loan to another person. There’s a good reason for this. All lenders must comply with ASIC’s responsible lending conduct obligations, under which all credit contracts with a consumer must be suitable for that particular consumer’s personal financial situation. If a lender allowed you to transfer your personal loan to another person, the lender would not be meeting their obligation to assess the suitability of the loan for the other person.

You can have more than one personal loan at once. However, if you want to take out a second or third personal loan, your options may be more limited. Your debt to income ratio would be higher, and your financial position would be less advantageous. You should also bear in mind that multiple loans can have a negative impact on your credit score.

If you have more than one personal loan, you should consider NOW Finance’s debt consolidation options.

You can get a free, online copy of your credit report, which will contain your credit rating. Your credit score will be in a “band” — low, fair, good, very good, excellent. Contact a credit reporting agency to obtain your free credit report.

NOW Finance will not charge fees if you pay off your personal loan early. You may even save money on interest, depending on the terms of your credit contract.
