The CCTA (consumer credit trade association) are an association representing businesses who provide credit to their consumers. It was established back in 1891 and has a long history of working with industry regulators.
They are the go-to agency for their members if they need to learn about changes in industry and the CCTA provide an uncompromised support service to their members which offers help and advice as well as a range of agreements and statutory documentation.
The CCTA prides itself on its reactive media service that is constantly updated with the latest news updates as well as online advice tailored to the consumer credit industry.
CCTA is transparent in the way it operates as it shares insights and expert guidance from its own stakeholder engagement in briefings and publications to its members. It even has a portal for non-members to access agreements and statutory documents as well as the latest news reports and updates.
Why should I become a member?
A good reason to become a member of the CCTA is that they work closely with the government, regulators, and policymakers to provide their members with the most up-to-date and accurate information in order to shape a voice that represents the consumer credit industry and the range of issues it faces.
As well as working with businesses, the CCTA helps out consumers as well, providing them with information including help with finances through a range of well-known support networks and services, codes of conduct relating to lenders and where to complain should they have any issues with finance they have taken out.
The CCTA website itself is clearly laid out and it is simple to navigate for anyone new to the site. Documents are readily available and are downloadable from its user-friendly menu system. Its informative monthly magazine is well worth a read too.
