Finance Charge

A finance charge is a charge assessed by a lender on a borrower for the use of credit. The finance charge may be based on the interest rate, fees, other charges, or some combination of these factors. A creditor must give you an explanation of how it calculated your finance charge before you enter into the transaction. You can use this explanation to comparison shop for credit and avoid paying more in finance charges than you have to.
