Representative example

Rate of interest - 13.97% per annum (variable)

Total amount of credit - £1,200

Representative APR - 41.57% variable

A representative APR is the rate you may pay and is designed to let you compare costs with other credit products, taking into account that you may pay interest on interest and includes any fees which apply. If no fees apply, the APR will be the same as the EAR*. APRs are variable and may change. The maximum rate offered will be 41.57%. Your rate will apply to both Arranged and Unarranged borrowing and will be advised upon successful application.

This example is for illustration purposes only.

As an example, if you borrow £500 it will cost you:

7 days30 days60 days
£1.33£5.74£11.54

This is an example based on 14.90% EAR*/41.57% APR.

*The Effective Annual Rate (EAR) is the cost of borrowing on current accounts. This takes into account the rate of interest charged, how often it’s charged and the fact that if interest is not paid, you'll pay interest on interest. The EAR can change.
