Comprehensive Credit Reporting (CCR)

Tips

What is Comprehensive Credit Reporting (CCR)?

CCR is the secure exchange of credit information about borrowers between Credit Providers (CPs) like Macquarie Bank and Credit Reporting Bodies (CRBs) such as Equifax. This is an enhancement to the existing Credit Reporting (‘negative’) regime which consists of credit enquiries, defaults and serious credit infringements.

The information shared is now more comprehensive and includes ‘positive’ information such as account open and closed dates, credit types, credit limits and up to 24 months of Repayment History Information (RHI).

As of December 2019, we’ve begun participating in the CCR regime.


What does this mean for me?

As we’re now participating in CCR, this means your Credit Report may contain additional things such as your credit types, credit limits and repayment history.

To ensure RHI is displayed positively on your Credit Report, it’s important you meet your repayments on time, by the due date. For more information, please visit www.creditsmart.org.au/learn-about-credit


How do I obtain a copy of my FREE Credit Report?

You can obtain a copy of your free Credit Report by contacting Equifax directly.


CCR and Financial Assistance customers

There’s currently a Government led review of financial hardship arrangements which will dictate how Credit Reports display RHI for relevant accounts. Once the review has been finalised, we’ll implement necessary changes to the way we share this information.

Find out how we can assist by visiting Macquarie.com/financial-assistance.
