Getting Credit in a COVID Market

The COVID world we currently live in has changed the way we do many things and getting credit approved is one of them. Here are some insights and tips to help navigate through these times.

1. Whilst the majority of industries are ok, unfortunately some are now seen as high risk and will be challenging to get approval for in the current environment. Unsurprisingly, these include:
* Tourism
* Hospitality
* Retail
* Sports, Art and Recreation
* Private Education (excludes Private Schools)
* Transport (excluding Public Transport and Delivery Services)
* Accommodation and Food Services

If you have applications for any in these sectors, please make sure you include guarantees and direct debit as this will help with the approval process.

2. If a customer is still in the Hardship Deferral Period unfortunately we currently cannot approve any additional finance. We will advise further when this situation changes.

3. Currently financiers are seeing an increase in applications with suspicious activity. As a result, signatures and details of customers are being more carefully vetted, so when signing up clients please keep this in mind.

The good news is, until at least 30 September 2020, SER can accept clear copies of documents for deals up to $250k.

As you can imagine with all of the above going on, approvals and settlements are unfortunately taking a little longer than usual. But be assured that SER will do everything in its power to process, approve and settle applications in an efficient manner, to ensure fast approvals and settlements. Hopefully the above guidance will help in getting these deals processed as quickly as possible.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any queries on the above.
