Voluntary Select Options
Our Voluntary Select Options have been designed to offer your customers flexibility and choice. Whereas the payments made under our Interest Select Options are fixed and routine, the Voluntary Select Options allow your customer to make a voluntary payment of their choosing each year.
Customers can make:
- A contribution of up to 15% of the inital loan amount each year.
- An unlimited number of voluntary contributions, with a minimum contribution amount of £50.
- Start their contributions immediately.
- Make contributions by cheque, BACs transfer, debit card or standing order.
