*Disclaimer & Example: For our Small Loans of $2,000 or less, an APR (Annual Percentage Rate) doesn't apply. These loans are fee-based only with a term between 62 and 180 days, and so the APR is 0%. The establishment fee is 20% of the amount borrowed and the monthly fee is 4% of the amount borrowed. Representative example: a loan of $1,000 repaid over 3 months equates to a total amount payable of $1,320 comprised of $1,000 principal (amount borrowed), $200 establishment fee and $120 in monthly fees. The maximum comparison rate on loans between $300 and $2000 is 199.43%.
For our Medium Loans between $2,100 and $5,000, with a term between 2 months and 12 months, the maximum Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 48% (Comparison rate 65.6597% p.a.) and there is a $400 Establishment Fee. A Medium Loan of $3,000 borrowed over 1 year would equate to a total amount payable of $4,289 (including a $400 establishment fee).

Under the current legislation, most small personal loan providers don’t charge an annual interest rate (you’ll know this as an APR %). The maximum you will be charged is a flat 20% Establishment Fee and a flat 4% Monthly Fee. The maximum comparison rate on loans between $300 and $2000 is 199.43%. This comparison rate is true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
