Finance charge.

The finance charge, or total dollar amount you pay to borrow, includes the interest you pay plus any fees for arranging the loan.

A finance charge is expressed as an annual percentage rate (APR) of the amount you owe, which allows you to compare the costs of different loans.

The Truth-in-Lending Law requires your lender to disclose the APR you'll be paying and the way it is calculated before you agree to the terms of the loan.
