Public Consultation - Capping the cost of licensed moneylenders and other regulatory matters

Download

The Department of Finance is considering proposals to cap the cost of borrowing from licensed moneylenders. The Department wants to get views on whether the introduction of a cap on interest rates would have a negative effect on the regulated supply of credit and might lead to an increase in illegal moneylending or to financial exclusion for consumers of these regulated firms.
