Establishment

From $350 to $2,000
PPSR Fee
Payable when the loan is made which involves a registration by WBS on the PPSR.

Prepayment
Fee

If your loan or any part thereof is subject to a fixed rate of interest (including as fixed by a prior interest review) and is repaid prior to due date, either in part or in full, then WBS reserves the right to charge an early repayment fee.  Such a fee is calculated as follows, either:

a.      the cost to WBS as determined by any interest rate swap counterparty; OR

b.      the amount prepaid multiplied by the difference between the 90-day bank bill rate on the date of prepayment and the rate applying to your loan on the same date, divided by 100 and then multiplied by the number of days your loan had to go before the fixed rate applying to it expired.

Should either of the above result in a charge of $200 or less, no charge will be made.

The above formula is not the formula prescribed in the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Regulations 2004 or the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Amendment Regulations 2004.
