QuickQuid closure - what's happening?
On Friday, 25th October 2019, payday loan company Quickquid entered into administration. They’ve not accepted new loan applications since then.
In the first six months of 2019, the Financial Ombudsman Service received over 3,000 complaints about QuickQuid - the UK's largest payday lender. During this time, 59% of cases against the company were upheld, although it's thought that a backlog of cases has now built up.
As a result, QuickQuid has announced that it will leave the UK market.
Can I get a refund on my QuickQuid payday loan?
Many customers have made claims for compensation, saying that they were given loans they couldn't afford to pay back. The amount of compensation people with eligible complaints will receive depends on the process of the company's closure.
I have a payday loan with QuickQuid, what should I do?
You should continue making your payments to the loan as normal. QuickQuid customers can continue using their services to manage their existing loans. The administration process won’t affect the repayment term of your loan and if you miss payments you'll be subjected to the firms standard debt collection process.
We will continue to update this page as the situation develops.
