What is the total amount of your debt?

The FCA lending caps

The Financial Conduct Authority recently placed a price cap on interest and charges to protect borrowers from facing high charges. These include:

  • A 0.8% daily cost cap on the amount of money borrowed – this includes interest, as well as fees.
  • A £15 cap on default fees– interest may still be charged after a default is added to the account, but it cannot be more than the 0.8% daily rate.
  • A complete cost cap of 100% – this means you should not be asked to may over 100% of the value of the money you have borrowed.

The limits are relevant to credit agreements which have an interest rate valued at 100% or more per year, and these will be due to be at least substantially repaid within one year.

There are other regulations which have been in place since 2017. According to these, the lender has a responsibility to provide information on their products via a price comparison website, and this should always be authorised by the FCA.

In addition, borrowers should receive a summary of what they have borrowed, including a breakdown of costs.
