Thank you for your question and welcome.
My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.
You are only supposed to disclose things that affect your fitness to do the job.
Having debt does not suggest you are not fit and proper to do the job. If anything having debt that you service should give you a good credit score not a bad one.
Have you defaulted on any of your credit obligations?
The rule is if in doubt you are supposed to disclose it, but having a mortgage and credit card debts that you can service, does not seem to me like something that will affect your fitness and propriety to be an IFA.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
