Steven's income was affected by an unforeseen medical bill that resulted in his debt commitements not being met for almost 6 months. When he approached us he wanted to know how Debt Review would reduce his monthly repayments and also how the process works.

Steven's Debt Review Installment

The above installment and interest rate was calculated for Steven


Stevens Current Situation:

Steven's current combined contractual agreement is R13,922.77 per month at an average interest rate of 30% over 12 months.

This installment reduces over the 12 months as smaller debt is settled.

Interest paid back to his Credit Providers = R12,439.87


Stevens New Debt Review Contract:

Steven's installment was reduced to R1,831.53 at an average interest rate of 6.5% over 48 months.

Interest paid back to his Credit Providers = R10,130.70


The following Fees were added onto the above Restructured Installment:

Debt Counsellors Fees = R100.00 per month to manage Steven’s Debt Review Process.

PDA Fees = R70.00 This is what is charged to pay the installment to Credit Providers.

For a detailed explanation of how fees work, please read the article below “Debt Counselling Fees Explained.”


Term of Debt Review:

You will note that some of the terms are longer than 48 months. However one of the biggest benefits of Debt Review is that as short term loans are settled, the installments rollover to other debt which reduces the overall term of the Debt Review process.


Shortly after Steven started Debt Review his income increased and he was able to pay R4,000.00 each month to his Debt Review Installment. This resulted in Steven finishing his Debt Review in 24 months and not 48 months as previously calculated. Steven's Debt Review status was removed 2 months after completing the process and he was credit worthy again.


Steven will therefore only paid back R5061.77 in interest charges to Credit Providers.
