More about the Debt Test

The Debt Test tells you how you would appear to a credit rating agency. Your results are only an indicator, not an exact prediction, so you should not take any decisions based solely on your feedback.

Your feedback is based on the information you give today about your current financial circumstances. Everyone's situation is different, so some of the suggestions we make might not apply directly to you. You may need to adapt them to fit your own circumstances. And, remember, it is a good idea to review your finances from time to time, especially when your circumstances change.

The Debt Test aims to give you some information to help you identify your financial needs and make your financial decisions. It does not provide financial or other professional advice. If you want advice specifically tailored to your personal circumstances you should consult an adviser.
