General Questions

Is MoneyBoat.co.uk a direct lender?

Yes, we are a direct lender. We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority under registration number 674154.

What is the minimum and maximum loan amount you offer?

The minimum loan amount is £200 and the maximum is £800. Existing customers can borrow up to £1500.

What's the minimum and maximum period I can borrow for?

The minimum loan duration is up to 2 instalments and the maximum is 6 instalments. The minimum instalment duration for the first instalment is 5 days, the maximum instalment duration is 45 days.

What is the interest on a £100 loan?

For every £100 borrowed we charge a competitive rate of 0.7% per day. This equates to a maximum interest rate of 21% over 30 days, which is less than the maximum interest charge allowed by the Financial Conduct Authority.
There are no other borrowing charges.

Can I borrow a second loan if I still have an outstanding balance?

If you currently have an outstanding loan balance, we will not be able to offer you a “top-up” or second concurrent loan. Once your current loan is repaid you may be eligible to apply for a new loan; but instalment loans are considered an expensive form of borrowing and is not suitable for a long term financial solution.

If you are experiencing financial difficulties and would like to set-up a repayment plan please contact us directly.

Can I borrow money if I'm a student?

Unfortunately we do not offer loans to student and any application from students will be declined.

What is a Summary of Borrowing?

We ensure that a summary of borrowing is available to all customers, which provides an overview of the total cost of your borrowing. The summary is updated and made available to you in the following circumstances:
– You settle your loan with us; or
– Three months have passed since you made your last payment to us (only applicable if your account remains open); or
– Your account with us is closed as a result of default or forbearance.
Any summary of borrowing you receive will be issued via email. If you have any further queries regarding the summary, please do not hesitate to contact us, or if you wish to request a summary, please visit our Loan Summary Request Form page.

What are the costs of a short term loan?

We charge the following:

Interest: 0.7% per day on the capital amount borrowed.

In the event of a missed payment:

Late Payment Fee: £15.00 – non refundable, one off. Payable if your repayment remains unpaid three days after the initial due date.
Interest: Interest on all payments at the rate of 0.7% per day subject to the total amount of interest payable under this agreement not exceeding 100% of the amount of credit provided, including all interest, fees and charges.
Court Fees: Only as per Court charges, nothing extra
Enforcement Fees: Only as per Court charges, nothing extra

We may attempt to authorise your debit card before your payment due date to ensure it is active – this is a non financial transaction and no amount is actually debited from your debit card.

How do I make a complaint?

Should you wish to make a complaint, please click on our complaints procedure on our website or contact us for further information.

Can I modify my agreement?

Your interest is calculated on a daily basis on the outstanding capital. Should you wish to modify your agreement, you can call or email us in order to make an early payment. If you wish to postpone your payment, i.e. modify your agreement, we will need to run a fresh affordability assessment before setting this up. Again, feel free to give us a ring or send us an email.

I'd like to pay early or I have paid late, what happens with my remaining payments?

You can repay early at no extra charge or fee. In the event that a payment is made outside of your contractual instalment plan, unless otherwise agreed, the amount paid will be used to clear the accumulated interest balance up till the date of that payment and the remainder of that payment will be reduced from the outstanding loan principle.
Unless otherwise agreed, the remaining loan balance will be re-amortized over the number of contractual repayments remaining as per the Agreement.

Do you have a refund or cancellation policy?

Refunds may be offered, but in any event, on a discretionary basis. Should you wish to cancel an existing / open loan you may do so at any time, please refer to your signed Consumer Credit Agreement for further details on how you can do this.
