A portion of the Disbursement Amount may be used to pay off any amounts owed from a prior Funding Account or on amount owed from a third party. 

2 Your business may incur other fees that are not a condition of borrowing, such as late payment fees, returned payment fees, or monthly maintenance fees. Those fees are not reflected here. See your Funding Account arrangement for details on these fees.

APR is calculated here according to the principles of 12 C.F.R. §1026 (Regulation Z), using 52 payment periods of equal length and 52 payment at per year for weekly pay products.
