Central Credit Register

Notice to Members who have Outstanding Loans and Loan Applicants re Central Credit Register

The Central Bank of Ireland are setting up a Central Credit Register under the Credit Reporting Act 2013.

The Central Credit Register is a national database that will, on request, provide:

a borrower with an individual credit report detailing their credit agreements;
a lender with comprehensive information to help with credit assessments; and
the Central Bank with better insights into national trends in the provision of credit.
The Credit Reporting Act 2013 requires us to process your personal and credit information for the Central Credit Register. From 30 June 2017, we will submit personal information to the Central Credit Register that we may already have about you, like:

your name;
address;
date of birth; and
personal public service number (PPSN) – a very important piece of information for matching.
The Central Credit Register needs this information to make sure it accurately matches your loans, including loans that you may have with other lenders. Producing a full and accurate credit report is one of the main aims of the Central Credit Register. We will also submit credit information each month about your loans, if the loan is for €500 or more.

Your loan information will be stored securely on the Central Credit Register where it will be used to create your credit report. The Central Credit Register will not calculate a score or grade for your credit report. Information will be kept on the Central Credit Register for five years after your loan is paid off.

In early 2018, credit reports will become available from the Central Credit Register. Once available, you may request your report at any time and are entitled to one free report each calendar year.

Lenders may only access your credit report:

when considering an application for a new loan;
if you ask to change the terms of a loan; or
if they are reviewing a loan in arrears.
Employers, landlords, or any other person or entity cannot access your credit report without your written consent.

You do not need to take any action. We will shortly begin to send information on your loans to the Central Credit Register.

We invite you to read the Central Credit Register factsheet

If you have any other question about any of your loans with us, you can contact us at (064-6631344)

National search for Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneurs

National search for Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneurs of 2018 gets underway
DATE: 24/07/2017

Kerry County Council Local Enterprise Office confirms €50,000 county investment fund available
IBYE is a programme run by the 31 Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs), including LEO Kerry with the support of the Department of Enterprise and Innovation and Enterprise Ireland. The competition is open to people between the ages of 18 and 35 with an innovative business idea, new start-up or established business. Now in its 4th year, IBYE has an investment fund of up to €2million. The closing date to enter this year’s competition is Friday, 29th September, 2017 and there is a €50,000 county investment fund on offer to local winners and runners-up in County Kerry.
IBYE offers a very significant stepping stone into the world of running your own business for young people aged 18 to 35. It's not just the scale of the investment fund on offer that makes IBYE so important, IBYE entrants can go on to receive intensive enterprise boot camp training from LEO Kerry under the programme, to help them establish and develop their entrepreneurship careers.
Chief Executive of Kerry County Council Moira Murrell stated “Now more than ever before, Local Authorities are connecting with young and aspiring entrepreneurs, through our Local Enterprise Office. We are very keen to ensure that anyone with a good idea for a business is given the necessary encouragement and support every step of the way”.
Tomás Hayes, Head of Local Enterprise Office said: “The substantial investments available under IBYE are a very important part of the programme and will help more young entrepreneurs here locally to grow their businesses and create more jobs. Other business supports, such as management training, networking and one-to-one mentoring are also at the heart of IBYE. Last year, 450 young entrepreneurs all over the country benefited from these business supports and 180 of them won investment funding to help start and grow their own businesses, so the rewards are there for participants, as well as for the winners. Taking part in IBYE will help Ireland’s young entrepreneurs move their businesses to the next level with the support of their Local Enterprise Office, whatever stage their business is at.”
IBYE is run locally by Local Enterprise Office Kerry across three categories: Best Business Idea, Best Start-Up Business and Best Established Business. Up to 450 young entrepreneurs will be invited by the LEOs to attend free regional ‘Entrepreneur Bootcamps’ later in the year to help them develop their business and new venture ideas.
With an IBYE investment fund of €50,000, LEO Kerry will award up to six investments to three category winners and three runners-up at county level. The local winners in the Best Start-Up and Best Established Business categories at county level will receive investments of up to €15,000 each and the two runners-up will each receive up to €5,000.
The Best Business Idea winner at county level will receive an investment of up to €7,000 and the runner-up will receive up to €3,000 of investment. These winners at county level will progress to Regional Finals early next year and the national IBYE finals will be held in March 2018.
To enter, local entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 35 should visit the IBYE website at www.ibye.ie, to submit their applications online. The closing date for entries is Friday, 29th September, 2017 and there are no entry fees.

• individuals

• people overseas (including Irish emigrants) who will headquarter in Ireland

Each Local Enterprise Office (LEO) is running a competition in each county (September 29th closing date) aimed at finding winners in each of the three categories as well as an overall county winner.
Each LEO will have a total fund of up to €50,000 to invest in six businesses (three category winners and three runners-up) according to criteria including businesses’ investment needs. The three categories are as follows:
• Best Business Idea (pre-trading) – up to €10,000 investment fund through every LEO (€7,000 for category winner and €3,000 for runner-up, through every LEO)

The county winners will then proceed to eight regional finals from which 24 contenders (three from each region – one in each category) will be selected to compete for the national title of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur.
A further €100,000 investment fund will be available to invest in the winners of the three categories at the national final, one of which will also be named as Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur for 2018.

Car Finance - read the small print

OMI13784 Killarney CU Car fist A2 Poster v1 page 001 compress

Motor Finance – be informed before your sign up

With the 712 car registrations on the horizon, it’s important that you inform yourself on the motor finance deals that are on offer and consider all your option before signing on the dotted line.
Research conducted by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) regarding consumer behaviour when purchasing cars indicated that 54% of respondents to the survey planned how much they were going to spend and how they would finance their car prior to choosing their last car, while 46% chose the car first.
Killarney Credit Union advise customers to set a budget when purchasing a car and stick to it, as often customers can be swayed by dealer finance on offer and commit to purchasing a car without considering all the facts.
The key difference between a credit union loan and say dealer finance, is that you own the vehicle Day 1 with a credit union loan. With PCP/Hire Purchase with dealer finance, you are effectively renting the car as you don’t own it until the final repayment is made.
Helen Courtney Power, Killarney Credit Union stated “we are advising our members to be prudent when looking at car finance and as sometimes the devil is in the detail. With PCP/Dealer Finance they may be deposits required at the start, balloon payments at the end, mileage restrictions, wear and tear, these restrictions don’t apply in the credit union.
Competition and Consumer Protection Commission back up this claim. This May, the CCPC raised concerns about car finance products with the Department of Finance and Central Bank of Ireland following an increase in people buying new cars using types of hire purchase.
The commission said it was “of the strong view that there are certain characteristics of car finance products that mean some consumers could take out a product which may not be affordable or in their best interests in the long term”
With a credit union loan, there are no fees, and no charges and you also have the flexibility of clearing your loan early without any penalty. Also, if you run into arrears, you can sell the car, such options aren’t available under PCP deals, as you are essentially renting the car until the final payment is made.
The credit union offers free Loan Protection and Life Savings Insurance so in the event of your death or permanent disability your loan is cleared. With dealer finance, there is no such protection, so repayments will still have to be made or alternative arrangements made to pay outstanding debt.
Helen added “Killarney Credit Union has 3 branches, so a local credit union branch is never too far away. Call and ask for a car loan quote today It’s worth putting in the time to study and understand the different finance options available, it will save you money in the long run” she concluded.

Flexi Finance Scheme

logo landscape

Killarney Credit Union is looking for retail partners for its new initiative “Flexi Finance”. The scheme offers a finance options for customers of local retail outlets in Killarney and South Kerry. Speaking about the scheme, Helen Courtney Power, Business Development Officer said “we have been approached by a number of local retailers who want to help out their customers finance major purchases such as appliances, home furnishings, electronics, garden equipment and other purchases. Many of these items are costly and the retailer ends up holding the item in stock while waiting for payment from the customer, which may be over weeks or months. The beauty of the Flexi Finance scheme is that retailer refers the customer to Killarney Credit Union for the finance and we make the payment direct to the retailer in question. The customer can take home the goods immediately and repay the loan over a term that suits them and the retailer gets paid” she concluded.
Killarney Credit Union will provide all the training and support to the retailers who sign up to the Flexi Finance Scheme. Participating retailers will be promoted to the credit unions’ 25,000 members as part of the scheme. If you are a retailer who is interested in becoming a partner in the Flexi Finance Scheme, please contact Helen Courtney Power on 064-6623730/ 087-4518000 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Kerry County Leagues 2017 Launch
Killarney Credit Union played host to the official launch of the 2017 Kerry Senior Football and Hurling County Leagues sponsored by Chapter 23 Kerry & West Limerick Credit Unions on Monday March 6th 2017 at its head office in Beech Road.
The County Leagues commenced back in 1971 when eight teams took part in Division 1 and the following year it was decided to form three Leagues, Senior, Towns Cup and Junior and then in 1973, the Leagues really took shape with three divisions.
John Long, Chairman, Chapter 23 Kerry and West Limerick Credit Unions stated at the launch “the Credit Union movement is a vibrant community based financial co-operative who supports & serves the financial needs of its members, (many of whom are also GAA members), throughout Kerry & Ireland. The Credit Unions share the same common ethos as Kerry GAA, of Community spirit and indeed Voluntary service, and both are at the heart of many community successes. I believe that both organisations have played & continue to play a huge role in making the Island of Ireland what it is today” he concluded.
The partnership between Chapter 23 – Kerry and West Limerick Credit Union and the Kerry County Committee has been in place since 2003 – now entering its fifteenth year. The Senior Football League gets underway on March 19th (March 12th for Division 5) and the Senior Hurling League commences on April 9th.
John O’Leary, PRO CLG Coiste Chontae Chiarraí commented “The Leagues began back in 1971 and have stood the test of time and are the envy of every other county. We are delighted to have been associated with the credit union for the past fourteen years and we look forward to continuing that association in this and future years.” he concluded.
