APR stands for annual percentage rate. It takes into account the interest and charges payable on a loan and so shows the actual cost of the loan.
The interest is calculated on a fixed rate per annum between 5% flat rate per year (representative APR 6.9%) and 14.9% flat rate per year (representative APR 27.5%).
If you are worried that you will be unable to make a repayment you must contact us immediately; we will work with you to agree a payment plan that suits your circumstances. You can contact us via email at email@example.com
Your repayments will usually start one month after the loan is taken out and we always try to tie this into your pay date.
