Your Authorised Credit Representative acts as either an employee or a contractor on behalf of FARADAY & WEST (WA) PTY. LTD who is responsible for any financial product or recommendation that is provided to you.
All Credit Representatives and Licensees by law, have Professional Indemnity insurance to cover any potential claims. They are also closely monitored and supervised by insert name of licensee to ensure:

FEES, CHARGES AND NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE
Our income is mainly derived by a commission payment from a lender. However a broker is entitled, in some cases, to charge a fee for service. That fee charged may be a percentage of the loan amount or a fixed sum and can vary from product to product.
It is pointed out that a share of any commission earned by Licensee name may be passed on to a Third Party who has introduced a client to us for assistance in financial borrowings. This payment to a “Referrer” is at the sole discretion of FARADAY & WEST (WA) PTY. LTD..
All fees and charges will be detailed to you verbally and confirmed in writing in the Statement of Credit Advice and the Authorised Credit Representative Profile that accompanies this Credit Guide.
After considering the information disclosed to you in the Credit Guide, I acknowledge that you have the right to appoint, should you so desire, another credit representative to negotiate any loan requirements.
SUITABILITY OF LOANS TO YOUR FINANCIAL OBJECTIVES
It is our duty to have a complete knowledge of your current financial situation, financial objectives and borrowing needs before we can recommend a suitable loan package that would meet your requirements. Our views will be presented to you in our Statement of Credit Advice.
As a credit licensee we and our representatives are required to:
- Make reasonable inquiries about the consumer’s financial situation, and their requirements and objectives
- Take reasonable steps to verify the consumer’s financial situation
- Make a preliminary assessment (for providing credit assistance) or final assessment (if a credit provider) about whether the credit contract is ‘not unsuitable’ for the consumer (based on the inquiries and information obtained in the first two steps).
You as the consumer can request for a written copy of the preliminary assessment or final assessment (as relevant).
However you may simply elect to apply for a loan that you have already selected. If this is the case, we will not enquire about your needs and objectives but will still issue you with a NIL Statement of Credit Advice and proceed directly with the finance application for submission to your selected lending institution.
