Help with your loan
We know that the impact of COVID-19 may be making it difficult for our customers to meet their usual repayments on their loan. This could be due to sickness, reduced working hours, or a reduction in business income.
If you're struggling to make your loan repayments due to the Coronavirus, you may be eligible for up to 6 weeks of reduced or deferred repayments on personal loans (including car loans) and up to 3 months for home loans.
If you'd like to apply for financial consideration, please fill out our Change in Circumstances web form.
PLEASE NOTE: If your change in circumstances are permanent or long term, for example, if you’ve lost your job or closed your business due to COVID, please apply for Unforeseen Hardship here.
If you would prefer to download the Change in Circumstance form to complete later, you will need to:
- Download the form to your computer
- Open the file using Adobe Reader (it's free)
- Fill out the form and "Save as" to save the changes to your computer
- Email the form to COVID19@avantifinance.co.nz (or email@example.com if you have a home loan with us) and attach any supporting documents, such as a letter from your employer (if possible)
We will be in touch with you as soon as we've had an opportunity to review your form.
Stay safe and take care.
