What is Debt Counselling?

Debt Counselling as a service, was introduced to provide a solution to individuals with too much debt in 2007 as part of the National Credit Act (NCA) and the purpose of Debt Counselling is to provide a strong solution to individuals who are over indebted and can not pay all their debts. Debt Review is a highly effective alternative to traditional solutions such as Administration and Sequestration when dealing with debt and over indebted individuals. Debt Counselling has the wellbeing of consumers at heart and ultimately has the purpose of rehabilitating consumers and reintroducing them back into the credit market.

Debt Counselling or Debt Review in short speaks of an individual who earns less income compared to their monthly debt or credit expenses. This individual is therefore considered over indebted and no longer credit worthy. The existing debt will in all likelihood increase based in accumulating interest placing further stress on an already burdened individual. Through a successful Debt Review application, the over indebted individual is placed on debt counselling and through the process, the individuals debt repayments are restructured in a way that all credit providers receives a reduced payment toward having all outstanding debt repaid while allowing the individual enough money for daily living expenses. This ultimately leads to the client having repaid all their debt and so becoming credit worthy once again.

The complete Debt Counselling Process is complicated and we, here at Gauteng Debt Counselling has an outstanding track record.

Reason for applying to go under Debt counselling?

I was in a relationship where my partner participated in paying various debts and expenses. When this relationship ended, I was forced to move to Pretoria, rent accommodation and because of this, could not keep up with my monthly debt responsibilities.
