How we get paid

For Business Finance, Vehicles, Trucks and Equipment Finance and Consumer Finance, Finance HQ and the financial adviser receive commissions from the various lenders we use.

If you decide to take out a loan, the lender will pay a commission to Finance HQ and your financial adviser. The amount of the commission is calculated through an agreed base rate between the lender and Finance HQ. The advisor will then add a margin above the base rate to reflect the commission paid.  

Fees and charges

Finance HQ charges a broker fee for every deal we process. This fee can vary between $0 and $1000, and is included in your loan structure/repayments. The fee charged relates to providing specialized assistance with sourcing the right finance solutions to meet your needs and objectives. If you do not enter into the credit contract you will not be charged.

Please note the Lender will also have fees and charges relating to the processing of your deal and loading security on the PPSR. All fees and charges will be disclosed to you upfront upon approval from the lender.

How we manage conflicts of interest and/or incentives

To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise the client’s interest above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of the client’s goals and circumstances.

All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest. We undertake a compliance audit, and a review of our compliance programme annually by a reputable compliance consultancy firm.
