## APR Explained

APR or Annual Percentage Rate is a measure of the cost of credit on a yearly basis. It enables two finance products to be compared because it takes into account all the fees/charges that accompany the product. Another measure of comparison is the total amount repayed as this enables comparison of finance products with different borrowing periods. The total amount repayed less the amount borrowed is the true cost of credit. APR should be quoted on all finance advertisements to provide a relaible basis for comparison.

Note that APR does not take into account penalty charges that may be incurred if you miss a payment or optional fees from things like balance transfers on credit cards.
