Interest rates and fees — archived December 2016
Total transparency and no sneaky business
At Harmoney, we’re 100% open and transparent about our rates and fees. If you're thinking about getting a loan, you can check what interest rate will apply to you through our no obligation loan application process, and you won't be charged a Platform Fee until your loan is issued. If you're an investor, you'll find details regarding the service fee below.
Harmoney interest rates are based on a risk gradient. Each loan application is given an interest rate according to Harmoney's credit scorecard. The interest rate on a loan is both the interest rate paid by borrowers and the gross interest rate due to investors.
- During the loan application, borrowers provide us with some financial information;
- Based on an assessment of this information, we’ll assign an interest rate to the borrower;
- The borrower will then be able to apply for a loan at the provided interest rate.
Our interest rates are tailored to each applicant individually, and start from as low as 8.99% (comparison rate 9.52%) (subject to change without notice).
Borrowers who maintain their regular repayment schedule will be charged no additional fees beyond the one-off Platform Fee.
Harmoney charges an up front, one-off Platform fee to borrowers of $375, added to the loan amount requested and paid to Harmoney on settlement of the loan. If your loan is not successfully funded, you will not be required to pay an Platform Fee
What fees will there be if I am eligible for a loan Top Up?
A Platform Fee of $375 applies to Top Ups.
In the case where a borrower’s repayment is dishonoured, a $15 fee will be charged to the borrower’s account due to the additional administration required to re-process the payment. The fee will be due in the borrower's next payment.
If enforcement action is required against a borrower, any legal and associated third party costs incurred will be charged to the borrower account. The costs charged are due in the borrowers next payment.
The only fee paid by investors is the Service Fee as outlined below.
Investors are charged a Service Fee of 1.25% of the principal and interest payments collected on each fraction. The service fee is deducted from repayments into the investor account. The fee is paid to Harmoney for managing borrower repayments and administering the account on behalf of investors.
