Getting your money

Once you accept your loan terms and we have your completed paperwork, we’ll transfer the money to your account the same working day. We’ll take our arrangement fee*, which is as little as 4%.

Repaying your loan

When you accept your loan, we can agree a suitable date to make your repayments – these will be fixed each month so you will know the dates of your repayments in advance.

*If you arrange your loan via a broker, you may have to pay an additional broker fee.
