1.) Flat Rate - Interest is charged as a flat amount irrespective of the date of payment.

Loan application fees are application based on amount ranges or as a flat percentage. Loan insurance can also be set either as a percentage or you might opt to use the default insurance formulae provided by CIC Insurance Group.
