The CreditSmart website sets out what you need to know about your credit report and credit score, and provides tips for improving your credit health. However, there is more help available to you if, for example, you need to arrange for information on your credit report to be corrected, if you need debt assistance or if you simply want to know more about your rights as a consumer.
ASIC's MoneySmart website offers free and impartial financial guidance and tools to consumers to help them make the most of their money.
