The National Credit Act 34 of 2005 applies to "every credit agreement" concluded between parties "dealing at arm's length" (s 4(1)). (For the meaning of the unnecessary, confusing and vague expression "at arm's length," see the deeming provisions in s 4(2)(b); Van Zyl in Scholtz (ed) Guide to the National Credit Act (2008) par 4 2.) The central term in the act is "credit agreement", which may take one of four forms: (i) credit facility; (ii) credit transaction; (iii) credit guarantee; (iv) any combination of (i) to (iii) (s 8(1)).
