What is a Long-Term Loan?
Long-term credit is a debt that is paid off over an extended period of time, usually more than one year. Long-term finance involve borrowing money over a specified period with a pre-planned payment schedule.
What are the Benefits of a Long-Term Loan?
Here are some advantages of long-term credit:
- The flexibility. You can get long-term credit online ranging from £1,000 up to £100,000, and you can repay the loan over a period of time that suits you.
- The interest rates are usually much lower on longer-term loans.
Another advantage is that you pay back long-term credit over an extended period of time. A longer time period means lower monthly payments which make the repayments more affordable, although you may pay back more overall.
See the impact of paying back over a longer period in this example:
|Loan||Loan period||APR||Monthly payment||Total payment||Cost of loan|
|Loan period||2 years||5 years|
|Cost of loan||£1904.04||£4230.72|
From this example you can see that even though the monthly payments are much more affordable when paying back your loan over a longer period of time, the overall cost of the loan increases. So you have to choose the length of loan that is affordable for you. If you do take out a long-term finance with bad credit, make sure you fully understand the terms of the loan and can afford the repayments.
