What is Representative APR?

APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate. It is a standard way of describing the cost of a loan and is used across the UK to help you compare different credit products easily.

The APR takes into account how much you'll pay in interest on the loan, as well as any other fees and charges you'll have to pay. For example, the APR will include any setup fees and other costs associated with the loan.

The APR is 'representative' because at least 51% of the members who are accepted for this loan will pay this rate. You may be offered different rates, depending on your personal circumstances.
