Early Repayment Charges

Find out more about paying off a loan early

Why choose to repay your loan early?

If you find you have a wee bit more money in your account you might think about repaying your loan early. 

This could mean you end up paying back less in interest in the long term.

It’s important to remember that if you repay your loan early, you will be charged an Early Repayment Fee. The amount you will be charged will be equal to 58 days’ interest on the amount you repay early (28 days’ interest if the period of the Loan is one year or less). If there is less than 58 days (or 28 days if applicable) remaining on the loan, the calculation will be based on the actual number of days remaining. This is in addition to your outstanding loan amount and any outstanding interest.

Early repayment charges

Our examples below are based on loan amounts borrowed over 5 years and on the basis the loan is re-paid in full half way through the term.
