FAQ

How much does a loan cost?

A loan of  $1000.00 -  over six months, with repayments of $190.00 per month - would set you back around $140-00 in interest. The APR is set at 48%.

You can take the full 6 months or 1 day to repay, there is NO penalty for early repayment, the quicker you pay the less interest you pay. 

Other fees and charges - SIMPLE we don't have any. At Adam Smith we have no set up fees..... no late payment fees....no hidden fees.

What is an APR?

The term APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is dependent upon many factors, the amount and time your loan is over are factors to take into consideration.
