  • Q. What Does APR Mean?
    A. APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate. When you borrow money on an agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act, lenders are required by law to quote this rate, which calculates the total amount of interest that will be paid over the whole term of the loan while taking into account any additional charges that the borrower has to pay. The APR allows you to compare the cost of finance from different lenders.
