Why use a finance broker?

How do we get paid?
There is no cost to you!
Our aggregator receives commission from the lenders, then pays commission to our licensee. Our licensee then pays us commission in relation to loan contracts (such as home and investment property loans) for which we act as the credit representative in providing credit assistance.
An upfront commission is payable by lenders in relation to settled (drawn-down) loans and is calculated as a percentage of the loan amount. It is usually paid after settlement of the loan.
Trail commission is payable by lenders in relation to settled (drawn-down) loans. It is calculated monthly on the outstanding loan balance and is paid in arrears.
The upfront and trail commissions that we are paid by lenders are not payable by you. Details of commission to be received will be included in the Credit Proposal Disclosure document that we will provide you with when credit assistance is provided.

What documentation will I be required to supply?
Typically, you will be required to provide the following documents to aid your loan application. But the documents required may vary from lender-to-lender.

You will be required to supply a variety of primary and secondary identification documents. Primary identification can include your birth certificate, current passport, or citizenship documents. Secondary identification may include your driver’s licence, state/territory proof-of-age card, your Medicare card or a student identification card.
What about proof of income?
Depending on your income and employment situations, you may need to provide different documents to prove you can meet your loan commitments.

Self-employed applicants may be required to provide the notice of assessment from their latest personal ATO tax assessment, as well as their businesses tax return and profit and loss paperwork. In addition to these, you should also provide documentation from any other incomes – if any – such as from rent, shares or Centrelink.
Assets and liabilities
Your lender may want to see evidence of any of your existing assets and liabilities. Documentation, or information regarding any existing property, vehicles, savings or superannuation that you own; or regarding any existing loans or credit that you owe, may be needed.
