Question 10

Question

What is the difference between EIR and APR?

Answer

The effective interest rate differs in two important respects from annual percentage rate: first, the effective interest rate generally does not incorporate one-time charges such as front-end fees or other "unusual" features; second, the effective interest rate is (generally) not a term defined by legal or regulatory authorities.
