How long will this stay on my credit report?

It is a question that anyone that works in the debt collection industry will no doubt be asked several times a week and one that if you get wrong could cause some problems.

This month we delved into the archives and did some research of the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner ("OAIC") website which has a host of information and fact sheets that you can download to assist you.

The answer to our question lies in Privacy Fact Sheet 36 which you can download here or you can view our quick summary below:

For further information we recommend that you contact the OAIC or your credit reporting agency.
