Commission files Harmoney proceedings

Friday, August 25th, 6:49PM

The Commerce Commission has filed civil proceedings against Harmoney at the High Court, claiming peer-to-peer lender Harmoney's platform fees broke the law and borrowers deserve compensation.

The moves comes after the commission asked the same court a number of legal questions in 2016, to clarify how the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act (CCCFA) applied to the platform's fees and to consumer loans administered by Harmoney. In May, the High Court struck out two of the commission's questions. The court is due to consider arguments about the remaining three questions in October. The commission says the peer-to-peer lender breached the CCCFA, which prohibits lenders charging unreasonable credit fees
