Toyota Dealer Finance (Flex Commissions) Class Action

Toyota Dealer Finance (Flex Commissions) Class Action

Litigation Lending is funding a class action, being run by Echo Law, against Toyota Finance Australia in relation to unfair dealer loans.

The class action alleges that, between 2010 and 2018, there was an undisclosed “flex commission” arrangement between Toyota Finance Australia and its dealerships, which encouraged those dealers to inflate the interest rates on loans they arranged for their customers.

This arrangement created a conflict of interest between the dealer and the customer that was never disclosed and resulted in customers paying significantly higher interest charges than they would have otherwise agreed.

The allegations made in the proceeding include that Toyota Finance:

  • engaged in unfair conduct in contravention of section 180A of the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009 (Cth);
  • entered its customers into unjust loans within the meaning of section 76 of the National Credit Code;
  • engaged in misleading or deceptive conduct in contravention of the Corporations Act and/or the ASIC Act; and
  • the loans were entered into pursuant to a causative mistaken belief and are therefore void and entitled to be rescinded.

The class action seeks to recover the additional interest fees paid by Toyota Finance customers, and is based on allegations that Toyota Finance’s conduct was misleading, deceptive and unfair.

Toyota Finance customers who entered into dealer loans between 1 January 2010 and 31 October 2018 can learn more about the class action and register their interest in being updated as it proceeds at www.echolaw.com.au/toyota.

Stolen Generation NT Class Action

In 2021 Litigation Lending Services (LLS), in partnership with Shine Lawyers, launched legal action against the Commonwealth Government on behalf of the Stolen Generations of the Northern Territory, who were forcibly removed from their families as children.

Although a formal apology has been made, the Commonwealth had refused to pay compensation to these members of the Stolen Generation, despite their own recommendation to do so. All other states with similar policies have paid compensation to those affected.

Subsequently, in August 2021, the Commonwealth launched its redress scheme, providing monetary compensation for Stolen Generation survivors in the Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory and Jervis Bay Territory who were removed from their families.

LLS is proud to announce the matter survived beyond the redress scheme and has now been settled with the Commonwealth pending final approval by the Supreme Court. Once approved, the living members of the Stolen Generation will retain access to the Commonwealth’s Territories Stolen Generations Redress Scheme with separate and additional compensation of $50.45 million now available for approximately 1,700 family members and deceased estates. The LLS action expanded the eligibility criteria for those impacted by the Stolen Generation policy to include deceased estates, direct carers and siblings.

LLS recognises the current Federal Government’s actions towards reconciliation and the recognition of the injustices of the past. LLS continues to priorities access to justice, with litigation continuing to be an ongoing and valuable impetus for bringing such issues to the fore.
