How does debt review work? Debt review or debt counselling refers to a process which is supported by law – The National Credit Act No. 34 of 2005. The intention of the law is to help consumers who find it difficult to repay their debts and still be able to provide for their own and/or family’s financial needs on a monthly basis.
Because it is a law – consumers who apply for debt review can rest assured that they are following a legal process which supports them and protects them against possible legal action from creditors.
