We’ve got compliance covered.
Whether you have your own Australian credit licence or are looking to become an AFG credit representative, part of being with one of Australia’s top mortgage broker aggregators is having the right support to assist you in meeting your compliance obligations.
Our Flex software incorporates the ability to generate and record the responsible lending process and the relevant disclosure documents, and we will continue to invest in business solutions and technology tools for our brokers to ensure they have compliance all wrapped up.
The opportunities and application processes in our Flex system have NCCP compliance processes which can enable you to create the Credit Guide, Preliminary Credit Assessment, Product Comparison Reports and Credit Proposals; giving you comfort that your regulatory requirements for providing credit assistance can be met. These documents are also auto recorded and maintained in Flex providing a backup and audit trail.
Our online training platform Learn also provides additional NCCP/Compliance guidance and tools for members on relevant NCCP requirements. We also have a National team of Compliance Officers who are only too happy to assist you when required.

If you choose to become an AFG credit representative, you have the peace of mind of knowing that your compliance is taken care of and you can get on with doing what you do best – growing your business.

Our compliance team can assist you in assessing the merits of complaints and PI claims and provide guidance and support on these matters.
Having professional indemnity cover that you can rely on is essential. All ACL holders must also ensure that their PI cover meets the requirement of ASIC’s RG210. We have negotiated with our insurer and ASIC to ensure that AFG’s PI program meets the requirement of RG210 and also includes invaluable features and benefits that other cover available in the industry may not.
In some cases, our brokers may be asked to respond to the regulators on certain matters or routine reviews. We’re always available to assist you.
