Does Nimble do credit history checks?

Like most lenders, we carry out a credit check as part of our assessment of your application.

But don't worry if you have a default on your file - we may still be able to help you depending on the circumstances. Nimble may approve loans for some applicants with black marks on their credit history depending on the reason and timing of the mark. Credit history is only part of our application assessment - we also consider other information as a responsible lender.

However, there are still cases when applications are declined. If you are bankrupt, in a Part IX debt agreement or Part X personal insolvency agreement, have defaulted on short-term loans, or have an extremely bad credit history, your application will be declined.

The information on this website is general in nature and does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Terms, conditions, fees and charges apply, and are subject to change. Applications are subject to Nimble’s credit approval criteria. Redraw not available.

For our Small Personal Loans of $2,000 or less, an APR (Annual Percentage Rate) doesn't apply. These loans are fee-based only, and so they don't have an APR. The establishment fee is 20% of the amount borrowed and the monthly fee is 4% of the amount borrowed.

For our Medium Personal Loans between $2,050 and $5,000, the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 47.6158% (Comparison rate 65.6597% p.a.) and there is a $400 Establishment Fee. For our Medium Loans between $5,050 and $10,000, the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 47.6158% (Comparison rate 47.6158%) and there is no Establishment Fee.
