* The annual percentage rate of charge (%APR) is designed to help consumers compare the cost of similar products.
The rate is calculated according to a formula which is set down in the Consumer Credit (Total Charge for Credit, Agreements
and Advertisements) (Amendment) regulations 1999 (SI 1999 No 3177).
These regulations, which came into force on the 14th April 2000, bring the calculation of the %APR into line with the provisions
set out in a European Directive (No 98/7/EC).
The representative %APR calculation is based on you receiving an £100 advance.
For the purposes of this illustration, you decide to borrow the money on or just after pay
day and then repay it on your next pay day.
The representative %APR on plans C & D is 1221.50% fixed when drawing down £100, and repaying 30 days later
(see t's and c's for method of calculation).
The APR will be considerably higher if (a) the period from draw down to repayment on the next pay day is shorter than one month;
(b) repayment is made after making one or a series of monthly fees after the first pay date and up to month 5;
(c) repayment is made in part or in full; (d) the account falls into default and charges are added; (e) change of payment date;
(f) the account is subject to rollover, arrangement, or repayment plan.
Further information on what elements must be included in the %APR calculation appear in chapter 10 of the
Financial Services Authority's Mortgage Conduct of Business Rules (MCOB10), which came into force on the 31st October
2004. The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has issued detailed guidance entitled Credit Charges and APR.
Warning: Late repayment can cause you serious money problems.
