2The representative APR is an illustration of the rate that the majority of customers will receive. If a loan is described as having a particular representative APR, then we expect to offer that rate or better to at least 51% of the applicants we accept. Other customers may get a different rate based on their individual circumstances.
Our representative APR applies to all unsecured loans with a borrowing amount of up to £25,000 for businesses with a turnover of up to £25 million. This figure is not necessarily the rate you will be receiving and is for illustrative purposes only.
3EAR stands for equivalent annual rate. It is the rate you would pay if you go overdrawn to the full limit of your facility for the entire year. It takes into account the interest rate you are charged as a result and how often it’s charged – in this case interest is calculated daily and charged monthly. It then takes into account the effect of compounding – charging interest on interest – on your debt. Charges for unarranged overdrafts are charged separately.
