Getting On Top Of Your Finances. 

Getting On Top Of Your Finances. 

We sometimes fall into the trap of too many hire purchases, too many credit cards to pay off, too many short term loans, and then we get unexpected bills to top it off. So all-in-all, it's really easy to miss a repayment on one of your personal loans, and, of course, this triggers a penalty fee, and you're immediately paying more interest on your total loan, including the penalty.

Now let's assume this goes unnoticed for a few weeks or even months, and you'll find you're going backwards financially, quickly. You'll want to simplify life and get on top of your finances quickly because you'll end up with a bad credit rating, and the worst-case scenario is that you might have to declare bankruptcy. The solution is consolidating debt with Alternate Finance.

Why Consolidate Debts?

Why Consolidate Debts?

It may feel that getting another loan to consolidate debts seems contradictory, but in actual fact, when consolidating debt we'll lower your weekly repayments, aim to lower your interest rates, and as a result, you'll minimise the chance of getting penalty fees for late payments because it's more manageable. It's designed to take the stress away.

When it comes to debt consolidation, NZ doesn't have a great track record. According to tradingeconomics.com, household debt to income ratios in New Zealand averaged a 126% increase between 1991 - 2020, with an all time high of 165.60 % in 2020's fourth quarter. Managing your money responsibly has never been so important.

Manage & Consolidate Debts

Manage & Consolidate Debts

Debt consolidation loans are the most common way the Kiwi's manage their finances through Alternate Finance? Unfortunately, people get into arrangements with other lending companies that loop you into a default trap. For example, you might be offered interest-free loans, but the moment you make one small error, all of the interest is added on, at very high fees. We help Kiwis get on top of life by consolidating debts, paying what you owe & rolling it into one easy payment that you can afford.

We start by adding up all of your current bills, checking the amount you're paying weekly, we include all of the penalty charges you've been incurring, and we then compare that against a simple loan for consolidating debt with Alternate.

We usually always find that we can reduce your outgoings on a weekly basis, improve your cash flow, and you'll be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel instead of spiralling into a financial hole. Once approved, we start by paying off all of your current bills, loan agreements, credit card debt and anything that's causing your financial challenges. At this point, your credit rating will start it journey on getting back on track; you'll be stress-free, and have everything under control and your weekly or monthly repayments will be reduced.
