Some of our clients have asked us “what is a comparison rate?” when purchasing a motor vehicle.

A comparison rate helps customers recognise the true cost of a loan

A comparison rate includes both the interest rate and the fees and charges involving taking out a loan. Together, they are combined into a single percentage figure, known as the “comparison rate”. Banks and other lenders are legally required to display one when advertising any loan.

It is made up of:

  • the amount of the loan
  • the term of the loan
  • the repayment frequency
  • the interest rate
  • the fees and charges connected with the loan.

Essentially it is a really useful tool for borrowers to compare the cost of different loans. However, you should consider the loan’s features as a whole. Don’t focus solely on the comparison rate. Contact BJT if you need assistance with understanding the features of your business loans. And for support in considering the financial impact of a business loan.
