EXAMPLE: This is how Frazer calculates the reserve as a mark-up.

Finance Charge

$2479.76 (15% APR on a total amount to finance of $10,000.00)


Bank Buy Rate


The Bank’s Buy Rate in this example is 8%.

At an APR of 8% there would be a finance charge of $1280.96


Sell Rate


15% (The actual finance charge of $2497.76)
(Comes from the APR entered on the pricing tab of the sales screen.)



Reserve Rate


50% (The percent the bank will hold in reserve)





SellRateFinance – BuyRateFinance = TotalSpread * PercentHeld





((15% APR of $10,000) – (8% APR of $10,000)) * 50%



($2479.76 - $1280.96) * .5



$1198.80(Total Spread) * .5
