What happens when you are over-in-debted

If you are over-indebted, Debt Busters will introduce you to the process called debt counselling.

A debt counsellor will consider your income and expenses and will work out a new debt repayment plan comprising smaller instalments and extended terms. The debt counsellor will do credit checks to make sure you can afford to repay your debt.

The budget plan

A budget plan will be set in place for you to help you improve your credit record. They aim to help you settle your debt quickly so that you would not have to declare insolvency. If you are a business, they will assist and educate your employees on the importance of money management.

Once your debt is fully paid

When you sign up for debt counselling, an expert debt counsellor will ensure that all credit bureaus and credit providers are informed that you are under debt review. The credit bureaus will then update your profile on their system as 'under debt review'.

When your debt has been paid, they will send a clearance certificate to their creditors and notify the National Credit Regulator as well as the credit bureaus. They will remove the 'under debt review' flag from your profile, and you will be able to gain credit again.
