Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Business transactions or banking transactions are not subject to the CA law on usury. The CA law allows businesses to charge any reasonable interest agreed upon by the parties. This is how some of these payday loan crooks get away charging 300% or more interest, they are a business and the loan is based on a contractual agreement and it is not a person to person personal type loan.
