What is debt counselling?
The National Credit Act implemented debt counselling as a means of helping consumers who are facing financial difficulties due to excessive debt. The objective of debt counselling is to rearrange debt and create a repayment plan that is approved by creditors or deemed fair by the court based on the situation.
Why debt counselling?
The levels of debt that households in South Africa have reached are exceptionally high. The combination of the economic conditions and the irresponsible extension of credit often result in consumers accumulating a significantly higher amount of debt than they can afford to repay. A large percentage of individuals' monthly income is utilised to pay off debt, with little funds left for living expenses.
