This is called the Credit Contracts Legislation Amendment Act 2019 (CCLAA).

Therefore you will need to select the relevant tab of the cost of borrowing version/s you are looking to view below (either pre-amendment act or post-amendment act):

This section is for loans already entered into, BEFORE the 1st May 2020 (1/5/2020).
