Since July 1, 2013 the permitted fees for small amount credit contracts have been the same, regardless of which State in Australia you live in.
Since 1 July 2013 there have been new rules relating to unsuitable credit contracts, fees or charges in relation to a small amount credit contract, the annual cost rate of credit contracts and default in payment by direct debit under a small amount credit contract. The Regulation prohibits loan-splitting in order to circumvent the cap on the maximum amount of costs which can be charged under a credit contract.
It also prohibits a credit provider from recovering charging third-party fees (for example, fees charged by a third party for providing access to the credit through cashing a cheque), where the third party has been introduced to a consumer to provide a service in relation to a small amount credit contract.
