What is Interest Free Credit?
Interest Free Credit is a loan that can be applied for purchasing an item on our website. The finance is interest free, which means that you will only pay the full price of the item, you will not pay any interest on that loan. You pay a deposit now and settle the balance over the timeframe that you choose. Interest Free Credit is only available to UK residents.

How does Interest Free Credit Work?
With V12 Finance Interest Free Credit you can pick any item(s) that meet the Interest Free Credit criteria. When you have finished shopping you can take your items through to your shopping basket where you will be shown a payment calculator. Your deposit will not be taken until you have been approved for finance when you will have to pay a minimum of 10% deposit by any accepted payment method (you can change this up to a maximum of 50% as long as this does not take the loan agreement under £250.00) and then you chose the time that you want to pay your loan back over.
- Click add to bag
- Click on the Pay by Finance tab
- Adjust the deposit and length of time
- Click apply for finance
You will then be taken to a secure site to complete the V12 Finance Interest Free Credit agreement and you will be told if you are successful at that stage.
Interest Free is exactly that. No catch. You pay no more than the Cash Price of your goods.
Pay an initial deposit and the balance is split over 6 equal monthly payments.
