Can APR be equal to or less than the interest rate?
APR cannot be less than the stated interest rate, although APR and the stated interest rate can be equal. APR usually includes additional fees that you’ll pay for the loan and is a more inclusive representation of all of the costs you’ll be borrowing. If there are no additional costs or fees to secure the credit, then your APR and interest rate may be equal.
