CrediFlex and our advisers provide finance and lending advice to our clients about:

  • Residential property loans (mortgages)

  • Marine equipment loans

  • Commercial lending
  • Working capital finance
  • Premium funding

We work with the following banks and non-bank lenders to provide you advice. To see a full list, click here.

Fees or expenses

CrediFlex may charge fees directly to clients.  In this situation, the fees are advised to, and agreed with, the client before  proceeding.  The fees may be in addition to any commission received from a lender.

If you decide to act on our advice, you will need to pay any fees and costs that the lender may charge you for their services. Once we know more about your needs, we will provide you with information about any amounts you would have to pay the lender.

Conflicts of interest and commissions

Commission

For all non-commercial and commercial loan contracts, we receive commissions from the lenders through which we place business

If you decide to borrow money from a lender for a non-commercial loan product, the following applies.  We provide more details about the commissions that each party receives when we have talked to you about the non-commercial loan product and understood your needs.  A percentage of the commission is paid to the adviser (authorised body) you are dealing with. The amount of commission that each party receives depends on various factors, such as the lender that you use and the amount that you borrow.  

To ensure our authorised bodies and their advisers prioritise clients’ interests:

  • Our advisers follow an advice process that ensures their recommendations are made appropriately, based on the clients’ goals and circumstances.
  • All advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest.
  • We maintain registers of conflicts of interests and the gifts and incentives received. These registers are monitored regularly, and additional training is provided as required.
  • CrediFlex undertakes an annual independent Compliance Assurance Review by a reputable provider.

Commercial Loans   

In the event a Commercial Loan is repaid or partially repaid early, a lender or funder may charge the borrower an early termination cost. This will be dependent on the remaining term of the loan, interest rate structure, and other factors determined by the lender or funder. In addition, the lender or funder may require CrediFlex to refund some, or all, of the commission paid to CrediFlex for arranging the loan or other financial products.  

To fairly remunerate CrediFlex for services provided in arranging a loan or financial product, CrediFlex will seek reimbursement from the borrower (CrediFlex client) for any commission refund due to the lender. This amount is payable when the loan is terminated. It is generally included in the loan settlement and repayment process or following the client receipt of an invoice from CrediFlex. 

Non-Commercial Loans 

Where a loan for Non-Commercial Borrowers is repaid or partially repaid early, the lender may charge CrediFlex a fee to cover the cost of the commission paid to us. If this occurs, we may need to recharge this to you. We will advise at the time of accepting a loan if this would apply to your situation.
