Building a financially
healthy society, together .
DebtBusters is part of Intelligent Debt Management (IDM Group), founded in April 2004.
The IDM Group has established itself as South Africa’s leading and largest debt management company. IDM offers solutions to South African consumers who are financially stressed and struggling with debt. These consumers often feel trapped in their situations, hopeless about their futures, and with nowhere to go. We believe they deserve a second chance: to see life after a debt, and build a financially-healthier future for themselves and their families.
We help consumers by offering trusted advice, the most suitable and affordable financial solutions for their situations, and simple, easy-to-understand products.
Ultimately, we want to save people money and manage their debt in a way that is appropriate to their unique situation and stage of life.
The positive stories we hear from clients about how our assistance has changed their life, is at the core of what drives us.
DebtBusters and IDM operate from a central office in Cape Town, South Africa. From here, our 400+ employees serve clients across South Africa.Learn more about IDM

"I remember my thoughts when I stepped out of my interview in March 2016 at DebtBusters: This company is one I can be extremely proud to work for and be part of. I knew I wanted to be associated with a strong company brand, that has a purpose and vision to enrich and empower South Africans that need our help at their time of financial need and advice."
Onboarding Fulfillment Manager
"Working for DebtBusters is really rewarding. Knowing one is helping struggling consumers to make ends meet. Working here also contributes massively towards developing other valuable life skills such as negotiating, budgeting, data analysis and systems development."
"At DebtBusters, we have a great mix of client and employee centricity, ensuring we help our consumers obtain a brighter financial future and grow our people in the process. The services that DebtBusters provides has assisted my family in breaking barriers that otherwise seemed unbreakable. I am proud to be a part of this team as we seek for innovative ways in which we can help other families, just like my own. "
Manager: Financial Assessors & Financial Consultants
"Working for an organisation that instils hope and faith for a bigger and brighter future, not only for the many impacted South African consumers, but also for many generations to follow, creates an indescribable feeling. Being part of the DebtBusters journey has made me feel proud of creating the opportunity for kids to attend school, to take part in a hobby that they love, and more importantly having parents without debt stress around to enjoy their lives together."
More than 12 million South Africans are estimated to have bad debt.
Debt doesn’t discriminate. It slowly creeps up on some of us. Others are pushed over the edge by an unexpected family death, divorce, or medical expense. No matter how you got into this situation, DebtBusters can help.
DebtBusters believes in giving South Africans a second chance to build a brighter financial future. We do this by helping clients take back control of their finances through our debt management solutions, such as debt counselling and debt consolidation. The most rewarding part of doing this is hearing our clients’ stories: how they transform their lives through debt counselling.
