The National Credit Regulator (NCR) was established as regulator under the National Credit Act 34 of 2005 (the Act). The NCR is responsible for the regulation of the South African credit industry and ensures the enforcement of the Act. Cyber Finance is register and regulated under the NCR. Our NCR DC number is NCRDC3022.

With more than half of South Africa’s 25.1 million credit consumers falling behind on their debt payments, the legal process of Debt Counselling has proven to help those struggling with over-indebtedness, improving their lives significantly.

No, Debt Review is not a Consolidation Loan.
To receive a consolidation loan, you will need to qualify for a huge loan. This means that you must have a good to great credit rating. You cannot have any debt in arrears, and you must be able to afford the instalment.
With Debt Counselling, we not only negotiate with your creditors for reduced instalments, but also negotiate for reduced interest rates. Cyber Finance will consolidate all your current debt instalments into one reduced monthly payment that you can afford.

Debt Review is one of the financial solutions that we can use to consolidate your debt and lower your monthly installment. Debt Review is a very effective and save way to consolidate your debt without needing to apply for a loan. For more info on debt review, click here.

We can definitely help you. Cyber Finance has a wide range of financial advisory services that cater a wide range of financial situations. Our Advisory team will guide you on the best options available to you.
Note our guidance and assessments are FREE OF CHARGE.

We will not share your information with any 3rd party. We value and respect your privacy, we will never send you any content that you do not want to receive. Your information will only be used for your application.

It depends on the financial solution that you apply for. Some of our solutions you are not able to use or make any new debt and others allow you to use some credit facilities. The best would be to apply for a Free Debt Assessment so that we can recommend the right financial solution for your needs.

A section 129 notice (issued in terms of section 129 of the National Credit Act) will advise you that you are in arrears. This section 129 notice must be taken very seriously. This is your last chance to act before your creditors proceed with legal action against you. Do not wait if you receive a section 129 notice. TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION!

Contact Cyber Finance as soon as possible. If you wait longer than 10 working days, your creditors can refuse that the credit agreement forms part of the Debt Review process.

Like any other service, there are fees applicable to our service. But, we explain any and all fees to you before you sign up for any of our services. Our Debt Assessment however, is completely FREE OF CHARGE with no obligation to sign up for any service.

If you are struggling to pay your debt and have little or no money left for food or your other monthly expenses, you are probably over-indebted. Contact Cyber Finance for assistance before your creditors proceed with legal action against you.

Reckless Lending occurs when a credit provider borrows or gives credit to you without first doing a proper affordability assessment, to make sure that you can afford to pay the monthly instalments. If you feel that you might be a victim of Reckless Lending, please contact Cyber Finance today.

Yes, you will be legally protected against your creditors while under Debt Review. Once you have signed your Form 16, you will be protected by the NCA (National Credit Act) for as long as you continue to make your new and reduced monthly payment.

Please do not. If you skip your monthly repayments, your creditors have the right to terminate the Debt Review process and can immediately take legal action against you. We understand that life happens, and problems arise – if at any time you cannot make a payment, you should contact our offices immediately so that we can advise you.

Everybody’s situation is unique. Your repayment term will depend on numerous factors. We can provide you with an estimate once a proposal has been sent to your creditors. We will be able to provide you with the final repayment term once all your creditors have accepted, or a consent order is granted. We have helped clients who were only under Debt Review for a few months. We also have clients who will be under Debt Review for more than 5 years. Again, each person’s situation is different.

No, not at all.
For the duration that you are under Debt Review, a notice will be placed on your credit report. Once all your debt has been paid off, that notice will be removed, and no evidence will remain on your credit report to show that you ever applied for Debt Review.

We will be able to include all current credit agreements. If legal action has been taken on one of your credit agreements before you applied for Debt Review, your creditors can refuse to include that account under Debt Review.

No, once you have applied for Debt Review, all legal action must stop.

Credit providers are likely to accept a reasonable offer that shows you are committed to getting out of debt. The credit providers may also appeal. However, the magistrate will review your Debt Counsellor’s proposal in good faith. Ultimately, your creditors just want to retrieve their money. Therefore, should your repayment plan be reasonable, it is highly unlikely that it will not be accepted by your creditors.

Once you have applied for Debt Review, your creditors will stop harassing you. If your creditors still contact you, please inform our offices immediately so that we can act.

Once you have applied for Debt Review, we will notify your creditors to cancel your debit orders. If you can, open a new bank account, especially if you have an overdraft on your current / cheque account. This is to prevent unauthorised money grabs from your creditors.

Yes. South African law states that if you are married in COP, your assets and liabilities are shared equally.

The National Credit Act (Section 88(1)) prohibits customers under Debt Review from incurring any further credit, except for a consolidation agreement.

If you do not receive a regular monthly income, you will not be able to apply for Debt Review. You must be able to pay a fixed amount each and every month to your creditors. If you are married in Community Of Property and your spouse is employed, you can apply.

Yes, you can. However, we may not be able to include the accounts that you already have judgments on.

No. Depending on your unique circumstances, Debt Review can help to save your home and vehicle. The bottom line remains that you will always be better positioned to keep your house, car, and furniture while under Debt Review, rather than trying to fight your creditors on your own.

The bank can reclaim the possession of a vehicle in two ways:

1. By Court Order
A court order will demand you to allow the vehicle financier to reclaim the vehicle. A court order is required to force you to give the car back.

2. Through Voluntary Surrender (in terms of the National Credit Act)
This is the preferred method by most credit providers, due to voluntary surrender being less time-consuming, more affordable, and easier when it comes to retrieving a vehicle. DO NOT SIGN ANY FORMS! Contact a Cyber Finance consultant immediately. Credit providers often blatantly intimidate consumers and very few people realise that they are under no obligation to sign such a form and give up their vehicle.

No. We will never contact your employer.

Generally, being under Debt Review is not an issue when looking for employment. This depends on the employer’s requirements for their employees.

Yes. The legal fees are included in your monthly instalment. Remember, Debt Review is a legal process. We will appoint attorneys to obtain a consent order on your behalf. This is to legally protect you against your creditors.

No, it is very unlikely that the magistrate will ask you to appear in court. Once we receive your granted consent order from the attorneys, we will notify you immediately via email.

Your money is paid directly to an NCR-accredited Payment Distribution Agent (PDA), who in turn distributes the funds to your creditors.

If you provide us with your email address, the Payment Distribution Agent (PDA) will send you a monthly proof of payment statement.

If your bond is up to date and you can afford to pay the original instalment, you have the option to cancel the Debt Review process. Cyber Finance will be able to issue you with a clearance certificate.

A Clearance Certificate, also known as a Form 19, is an official letter stating that you have successfully paid all your debt obligations. This letter can only be issued if all your debt, except your bond, has been paid up.
