What does the loan price include?

When comparing lending offers from different organizations, keep in mind that a lower interest rate does not guarantee a cheaper loan. In addition, the price of a loan includes various fees that can significantly increase the price.

There are single, monthly and annual fees, which are calculated based on the total amount of the loan or its balance on a given date.

Below is a list of possible commissions that will make your analysis easier and a small example for comparison.
