RAS is the sole provider of cheque-, credit- and property rental guarantee services in the industry.
The purpose of the National Credit Act is to provide a credit market in South Africa that is fair, transparent, accessible, responsible, competitive, sustainable and effective. This is primarily to protect the South African consumer. The RAS project was established in 2008 after a need was identified to provide independent SMEs, as well as large businesses, with technology and solutions to effectively manage their financial risk. These businesses have been under severe pressure due to the effects of the South African economic climate as well as legislation. Consumer rights are well protected by legislation and so should businesses enjoy rights and mechanisms to protect them from consumer exploitation.
We want to become a national leader in the risk assessment industry. Our strategy is to obtain CPA (Consumer Protection Act) information by getting a Financial Services Board license as a NCR (National Credit Regulator) credit provider.
Protecting South African businesses against illegal consumer actions and enforcing good business practices.
