When speaking of loan, the credit interest represents the total cost of the loan. Basically, this credit interest depends of two main factors:
- The interest rate of the loan: the higher the interest rate is, the more you will pay
- The duration of the credit: a short repayment duration will be much less expensive than a long period
What is a good credit interest?
A personal credit comes with a rate generally varying between 7.9% to 13.5%. Banks set the interest according to the situation of everyong requesting a loan. The best is your financial situation, the lower interest rate you will be offered for a loan.
How to calculate the cost of the loan?
The credit interest is actually an annual one. That means the calculation of the cost is not so easy. Let's take for example a 12-months repayment of a 10'000 Chf loan, with an credit interest rate of 10%. Each month, you will pay interests over this loan. That means that each month, the sum you'll have to repay will be lower, and the interest will decrease.
In general, this reasoning explains why, for a loan of 10,000 CHF over a year, you pay in the end only 650 Chf of credit interest in total. It can be quite difficult to calculate a credit rate.
