Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.
# Repayment Calculator assumptions
Length of month
All months are assumed to be of equal length. In reality, many loans accrue on a daily basis leading to a varying number of days' interest dependent on the number of days in the particular 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
In practice, repayments are rounded to at least the nearer cent. However the calculator uses the unrounded repayment to derive the amount of interest payable at points along the graph and in total over the full term of the loan. This assumption allows for a smooth graph and equal repayment amounts.
The interest rates represented on this page are St.George's standard interest rates and exclude any package or promotional discounts and are subject to change.
Please note – For secured loans, if the loan to value ratio of your loan is greater than 150%, then an extra 1% p.a. may be added to the interest rate for your loan. For unsecured loans, your actual interest rate applicable to the loan will be based on the information you provide at the time of your application and our credit assessment.
