    hiya

    looking to settle our car finance and the settlement figure says the interest charged is AER 10.5%, is there a way to use this to calculate APR?

    thanks

    AER is used for savings calculations, it's always in APR for borrowing.

    The AER or Annual Equivalent Rate is the official rate for savings … The AER or Annual Equivalent Rate is the official rate for savings accounts, and is designed to allow easy comparisons as it's meant to smooth out the variances between accounts (it's the equivalent of the APR for debts).

    There is a much easier way... Phone the loan company and they will send you a settlement figure with 5 days. This will be an EXACT figure then. They may even give you the figure over the phone!
    10.5% is a lot by the way, could of done with shopping around a bit!
