How we calculated this?

Plan 1 (Pre-2012)

The repayment threshold is £17,775. The interest charged is 1.25% AER. We have assumed 4% annual income growth.

Plan 2 (Post-2012)

The repayment threshold is £21,000. During University all students are charged interest of 6.1% AER. Post-graduation the interest charges range between RPI (3.1% AER) & RPI + 3% (6.1% AER). We have assumed 4% annual income growth.

We only need a few details...

Monthly employer contribution:

A monthly Employer contribution of £200 would result in total contributions towards your employees debt of £400.

Saving your employees £2,400 in repayments (including £2,400 in interest charges). It would reduce the time they spend in debt by 2 years.
