SMB provides small, short-term loans / payday loans in the New Zealand market. SMB offers loans of up to $500 for 31 days to permanently employed persons that have a take-home pay in excess of $400 per week.

SMB uses a positive income test/affordability ratio which we believe provides an appropriately structured credit product to customers with varying levels of income (after tax) with a minimum income level set at $400 net pay per week.

The maximum amount a customer can borrow varies depending on their net income, but in no event can a customer borrow more than 25% of their net pay per pay period. Save My Bacon operates a policy of Responsible Lending and abides by a Code of Practice. Please view the Save My Bacon Code of Practice page for more information. SMB is committed to improving your experience in the short-term lending market and establishing new levels of best practice standards for ethical and operational behaviours.

Our interest rate is 547.50% for most customers when expressed as an Annual Percentage Rate. Our loans are normally contracted to be for no more than 30 days, so interest is charged at a daily rate of 1.5% per day on the unpaid balance (including fees) at the end of that day. Interest is added to your account on each payment date and then form part of the unpaid balance of the loan.

We do not charge default interest.

Fees: Fees which we charge you and that form part of the initial unpaid balance of your loan:

  • $15 - Loan Establishment fee
  • $7 - Direct Debit fee is charged each time we take your payments from your bank account pursuant to a direct debit authority.

Other Fees that might be charged:

  • $30 - for each loan extension granted (max. of two for weekly customers, one for fortnightly, not available for monthly borrowers.)

Collection practices
If you are experiencing financial difficulties and cannot pay on the due date we can help you and will consider your circumstances both sympathetically and positively.

We can help if you are in default under your contract. However, if we have exhausted all our attempts to come to a suitable arrangement with you and you do not demonstrate a willingness to work with us to put the situation right, we may be compelled to take additional steps in recovering the debt which may include:

  • Referring your credit file onto a Debt Collection agency for recovery – you will then be charged all collection costs from our 3rd party collection agent including site visits and agent collection costs,
  • Charging you all legal costs incurred in the recovery of the outstanding debt.

Implications of Late- / Non-Payment
We do not charge default interest.
However, there is a $60 missed payment fee plus additional daily interest costs. Interest will continue to accrue on your balance for up to 45 days if we can reach an arrangement satisfactory for the repayment of the unpaid balance; or up to 60 days if we cannot reach an agreement.

Alternatively, you can contact us to reschedule your loan, which will incur a $30 rescheduling fee.
For more information, please refer to our Charges and FAQs pages.

Credit Score implications
When/where credit scoring is used in NZ a repaid loan will most often positively influence your credit score. However when a missed payment, failed payment or unpaid loan occurs this is likely to negatively impact on your credit score.

Renewal Policy
You can apply for an extension to your loan at a cost of $30 per extension (max. of two for weekly customers, one for fortnightly, not available for monthly borrowers.). While Save My Bacon does offer extensions, we do not do loan roll overs or loan refinancing, so there are no renewal or refinancing fees. We are committed to providing a hassle free solution to your short-term cash needs.

You can reapply immediately after your final payment has been reconciled on your account, usually around 8am the following morning. However, your payment takes two business days to clear.

Once you reapply, we just need to reconfirm your details and employment.

To help ensure you are a responsible borrower, a Save My Bacon Loan should only be used to meet short-term cash needs.
