Bad Credit with ATO Debt

Home loans & ATO Debt

Some borrowers may take it lightly but when it comes to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) it is a serious issue. The ATO has the authority to demand debt and take money from you without providing any evidence in court.

The earlier you act, the better chance you have for a successful outcome!

Can I get a loan if I have Bad Credit & ATO Debt?

Yes you can, although banks or major lenders not allow you to refinance your ATO debt, however, there are some specialist and Non-bank lenders who will be able to help with this situation.

The lenders will require sufficient amount of reason from yourself for them to take into account for the debts you have outstanding and the plan you have prepared to repay the debt, this allows them to consider whether to offer you a loan or not.
