Code of Conduct

SASFA has established a Code of Conduct that outlines a framework of Best Practices: Transparency, Responsible Lending and Fairness. 

SASFA encourages each SME to clearly understand the following in the context of applying for an SME Finance Product:

  • Clearly understand what the SME Finance product is;
  • Clearly understand the typical product features and the mechanics of repayment for the product;
  • Clearly understand what the benefits are to the SME’s business for taking such a product
  • Clearly understand what type of businesses are best suited for the product.

SME’s searching for business funding can vet potential partners based on their adherence to industry Best Practices.
