  • borrowers defending claims from banks and financiers.

In focus
Guidelines promote better standards for debt collection

New debt collection guidelines issued by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) in 2005 reinforce the importance of ethical conduct in dealing with debtors.

For example, under the guidelines communication with debtors cannot be for the purpose of frightening or intimidating a debtor, making them feel ‘under siege’.

Communications must consider any circumstances, such as language difficulties or illness, that may affect a debtor’s ability to protect their interests and should not occur more than 10 times a month.

Scoglio Law’s debt recovery services comply with, or exceed, all requirements of the ACCC and ASIC guidelines.
