As a leading debt counselling company, we as National Debt Counsellors take pride in our mission to rid South African citizens of their debt through our debt counselling services.  

How Does Debt Counselling Work? 

If you’re struggling to make your monthly debt repayments, you can apply for debt counselling with a registered debt counselling company like National Debt Counsellors. 

The process of debt counselling is much simpler than you might expect. It is summarised in a few easy steps:  

Step 1: Request a Free Consultation from National Debt Counsellors 

One of our professional consultants at National Debt Counsellors contacts you and takes you through a free, no-obligation financial assessment to determine whether you’re over-indebted. Don’t worry, this process is completely confidential! 

Step 2: We Notify Your Creditors & Negotiate a New Payment Plan for You 

If you are indeed over-indebted, we then notify your creditors that you’ve applied to go under debt review. From here, you and your assets are immediately protected under the National Credit Act. We also negotiate your loan agreements with your credit providers and restructure your repayments to an amount that’s affordable for you. This means you’ll no longer struggle to make payments each month! 

Step 3: Pay a Single, Affordable Monthly Instalment 

Once we’ve handled the above steps for you, you begin paying one easy monthly instalment via an accredited PDA (Payment Distribution Agency), which distributes the funds to your credit providers. 

Step 4: We Make the Approved Plan an Order of the Court 

Our panel of Attorneys apply to the Magistrates Court on your behalf to make your restructured repayment plan an official order of the court and ensure you remain protected during the process. 

Step 5: Your Debt is Paid Off and Your Credit Record is Clear! 

Slowly but surely, you’ll pay off your debt. Hooray! Once it’s repaid, a clearance certificate is issued and we notify the credit bureaus to clear your credit record. You are now able to live in financial freedom!
