Interest Rates

Do you want to borrow some cash for your personal or business needs? Are you worried about the interest rates of your borrowing? At East Bay Finance, we offer personal & business loans at highly competitive interest rates. Our interest rates range from 8.95% – 39.95% per annum. We use a range of simple criteria to decide the rates that we charge on your loan. These criteria include:

Before deciding the interest rate to charge you, we evaluate the amount that you want to borrow. Often, higher borrowing amount will accrue a higher interest rate than a lower borrowing amount. However, the rates charged will also depend on other factors.

With East Bay Finance, enjoy flexible terms on your loan. Ranging from 6 months to 60 months, the term depends on the age, and nature of the security you can provide us for the loan.

In some cases, we use your income to determine the interest rates to charge on your loan. In such cases, the higher your income, the lower your interest rate. However, this will also depend on other factors such as the amount that you want to borrow and the term of your loan.

We often use the ratio of your debt to that of your income to determine the appropriate loan interest rate. Having too much outstanding debt compared to your income will result in a higher interest rate while a lower outstanding debt will earn you a lower interest rate. Too much of the outstanding debt compared to your income may lead to your loan application being denied.

Most often, we use your credit history by examining your credit score to determine the interest rate to charge on your loan. A higher credit score enables you to be offered different interest rates. You may be offered a lower interest rate on your loan while a lower credit score will earn you a much higher interest rate.

At East Bay Finance, a security of a much higher value on your loan will earn you a lower interest rate.

 

Overall, we evaluate all of the above factors simultaneously to determine the appropriate interest rate that we will charge you on your loan. For more information or to speak to someone about your lending needs, contact us on 0800 432 742 or submit your loan application online today!
