What is a personal loan?

A personal loan is a way of borrowing money. Typically, you receive a lump sum and agree to pay back the loan over a fixed period of time with agreed monthly payments.

Can anyone apply for finance?

Any Channel Island resident in full time employment, aged between 18 and 70 years, can apply for a personal loan.

How are loan repayments calculated?

You will have to pay interest at a fixed rate on the amount you borrow, so the total repayable includes the total interest charges and the capital borrowed (much like a mortgage). The total repayable is then divided by the number of monthly payments you have chosen, to provide a fixed monthly repayment figure.

What happens once I’ve applied for a Qi Finance loan?

Once we receive your application we will contact you either by telephone or email to ask any questions and advice about any paperwork that may be required to complete the process.

When I apply for finance what checks do you make?

All reputable companies that offer loans use a credit reference agency (CRA) to carry out a credit search. We will add the basic details of your application to the CRA, which will be seen by other organisations that make credit searches. The search looks at your current and past financial status, including people with whom you have financial links like a spouse or partner. These financial details will be taken into account whenever you apply for credit.

Are there any costs other than APR?

Yes. There is what we call an 'admin fee'. We know, we don't like it either... but we have certain hoops that we have to jump through and, as you know, hoops aren't cheap! For example, we have to pay the authorities for your credit checks. Without these checks, it would be impossible to lend you the money.

Can I transfer an existing loan to Qi Finance?

Sure you can. You will need to come in for a natter and bring all your paperwork. Once we've considered your situation, we will do all the work for you. We will apply a transfer APR. The admin fee will still apply, but as long as you're saving in the long run, it's certainly worth it.

Your repayments will be made automatically by monthly Direct Debit from your bank account. Keeps it nice and easy! It's a great idea to arrange this date to be as close after your pay date as possible. Then it's done and dusted at the beginning of the month and you have nothing to worry about!

What happens if I miss or am late with a repayment?

Qi Finance wants to work with you to make sure your loan works for you. We encourage good behaviour such as repaying on time through rewards and incentives. If you’re struggling, rather than simply charging late payment fees we offer a range of options to help get you back on track.*

* please note that this only relates to loans underwritten by Qi Finance. If loans are brokered by Qi Finance and underwritten by a partner then their individual terms will apply.
