What is TCEA?
The Annual Effective Cost Rate (TCEA) allows you to calculate how much a loan or the use of a credit card would cost. In that sense, it includes, in addition to interest, all administrative expenses such as charges, commissions and insurance. That is, it is the total cost that a person must pay when requesting a loan.
Therefore, it is advisable to ask the bank about the TCEA, which is the real debt that includes a loan. Remember that the higher the rate, the more the loan will cost.
