Representative APR

Definition
The rate of interest payable on borrowing is often decided by a person’s credit score and status. To indicate an example of an APR firms show a "Representative APR" in advertising. This is the advertised APR that a minimum percentage of customers (who are accepted) will pay. Under current EU rules, this minimum percentage is 51%.

Explanation
So, if a loan is advertised as being 7.5% representative APR, this means at least 51% of accepted applicants will get the rate of 7.5%, and the remainder may get a different rate (likely to be higher).
