The National Credit Act

The National Credit Act (NCA) replaces the Usury Act No 73 of 1980, the Credit Agreements Act No 75 of 1980 and the Integration of Usury Laws Act No 57 of 1996

What is the purpose of the NCA?

The purpose of the NCA is contained in section 3 to the NCA, but a shortened version of the purpose would be:
  • To protect consumers from unscrupulous credit providers;
  • To regulate credit bureaux and ensure that the correct information is disclosed appropriately;
  • To regulate the way in which debt is recovered.
As a general philosophy, the NCA is focused on natural people and is consumer-centric and it is hoped that this legislation will be able to curb the abuse of consumers that has been occurring in South Africa.

Here's how:
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°c and lightly grease a muffin tray.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out each slice of bread until it is thin.
  • Line 4 cups of the muffin tray with a slice of bread.
  • Line each slice of bread with a bacon rasher and place 2 teaspoons of the tapenade on each rasher.
  • Break an egg into each cup and add the mushrooms and ¾ of the spring onions.
