What is Monthly Flat Rate? What is the difference between Monthly Flat Rate and Annual Percentage Rate (APR)?
Monthly Flat Rate is a method used by finance companies to calculate the monthly repayment amount. The calculation is as follows:
Total Interest = Loan Amount x Monthly Flat Rate x Number of Repayment Period (in months)
APR is calculated based on the net present value method established according to the Code of Banking Practice. It shows the basic interest rate, other fees, and charges (if applicable) of products in an annualized rate.
APR is a reference rate for comparing interest rates, and it only represents the relative cost of borrowing and repayment. For example, if the loan amount is HK$200,000 with repayment period in 24 months, and the calculation is based on 365 or 366 days in a year, the APR and Monthly Flat Rate (calculated using relevant guidelines from the Hong Kong Association of Banks) are 8% and 0.343% respectively. In this case, the monthly repayment amount and the total interest paid over the loan period would be HK$9,019.33 and HK$16,464.00 respectively.
Are there any other fees associated with the application?
There is no withdrawal fee nor annual fee for this loan product. If the loan instalment is not fully repaid on the due date, a fixed late fee of HK$300 will be charged for each overdue instalment.
