What do you need to apply for a loan with us? Well, we don’t ask for a lot, promise!
Be over 18
Taking out a loan is a big commitment. We need to know you can manage the responsibility, so we only accept loan applications from those 18 years and above.
Live in New Zealand
To meet our loan eligibility, you must reside in NZ as a resident, citizen, or on a working visa and be able to show us proof of address.
Have Two Valid Forms of ID
You’ll need to have two forms of ID, including one photo ID (passport or driver’s licence); the second form could be a community services card or even a bank card with your name and signature. For non-NZ residents, we need to sight your passport before we can approve your loan.
Proof of Income
We are committed to ensuring Kiwis don’t get in over their heads regarding loan payments. Our team requires your three most recent pay slips (your latest financial records if you are self-employed) and your previous three months of bank statements. In doing so, our team gets a complete picture of your financial situation and can work with you to find the best loan and repayment schedule possible.
Our loans are predominantly security-based, so you will also need some form of collateral in the form of car, property, or transferable securities such as life assurance policies or shares.
