Any advice on this website is general in nature and has been prepared without considering your objectives, financial situation or needs.

WARNING: Comparison rates apply only to the example or examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different loan amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates.

**Personalised rates: The rate for some customers is based on personalised pricing. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, personalised pricing allows us to offer more people personal loans at a better rate, based on an assessment of credit history as well as the information provided in the application.

#Repayment calculator & assumptions: Any calculations made by you using this calculator is intended as a guide only.  It is for illustrative purposes only and is based on the accuracy of the information entered and is subject to the calculator assumptions set out below.  The calculator does not take into account an establishment fee that maybe charged for a personal loan application.  The calculation is not an offer of credit. The amount you can borrow may vary once you complete a loan application and all the details relevant to our lending criteria are captured and verified.  The calculations should not be relied on for the purpose of making a decision whether to apply for a personal loan.

Length of month: All months are assumed to be of equal length. When you are approved for a personal loan, interest will be charged on the number of days in each month.

Number of weeks & fortnights in a year: One year is assumed to contain exactly 52 weeks or 26 fortnights. This implicitly assumes that a year has 364 days rather than the actual 365 or 366.

Rounding of amount of each repayment: This calculator does not round the repayment amount to the nearest cent, as it would for an approved personal loan. This assumption allows for a smooth graph and equal repayment amounts.

Interest Rate: The interest rates represented on this page are standard interest rates and exclude any package or promotional discounts and are subject to change.  Please note our personalised pricing means your unsecured personal loan interest rate may vary from the interest rate represented on this page.

^^To qualify for a lower personalised interest rate on a Secured Personal Loan, the car offered as security must meet all criteria - either be new or if used, cannot be older than 12 years at the end of loan term, registered under the applicant’s name, has been made locally or imported by the manufacturer, has never been written off (even if it was repaired), has a paid, fully comprehensive insurance policy with BankSA noted as the financier and is for personal use only.
