Dec 9 (Reuters) - Consumer credit lender International Personal Finance Plc said on Friday it was assessing the hit on its profit from Poland’s proposed rules to cap non-interest costs on consumer loans.
Poland plans to cap non-interest costs at 75 percent of the amount of the loan, according to the draft bill by the country’s Justice Ministry. At present, the cap stands at 100 percent.
