The cap on charges and interest – what you need to know

You will find that there is a cap on interest and charges, which was brought into fruition by the Financial Conduct Authority to protect borrowers. The regulations state that:

  • You can expect a 0.8% cost cap on the amount of money borrowed, per day, which includes both interest and fees.
  • A cap of £15 on default fees. Default interest can still be charged, but it cannot be in excess of 0.8% per day.
  • 100% cost cap, which means that borrowers cannot be asked to pay anymore than 100% of the amount they have borrowed.

The limits are relevant to credit agreements which have an interest rate of 100% or more a year, and that will be either fully or substantially repaid within one year.

There are other regulations which were brought in on May 2017. According to these, lenders have a responsibility to give out details of their products via a price comparison website. This must be authorised by the FCA, and borrowers would need to be given a summary of the total cost of the borrowing.

Continuous Payment Authority – know your rights

You may not have heard of this before, but chances are your loan is part of the Continuous Payment Authority (CPA). This means that companies can try and take the money you owe from your account.

You should be aware of the regulations which are in place relating to CPA. According to these, if a payment fails twice, the company is not permitted to try and take the money again.

They also do not have the right to take partial payments.
