  364.120.  Interest or discount, amount allowed, computation — prepayment of obligation — refund credit, calculation. — 1.  A premium finance company shall not charge, contract for, receive, or collect any interest or discount charge other than as permitted by sections 364.100 to 364.160.

  2.  The interest or discount is to be computed on the balance of the premiums due, after subtracting the down payment made by the insured in accordance with the premium finance agreement, from the effective date of the insurance contract, for which the premiums are being advanced, to and including the date when the final installment of the premium finance agreement is payable.

  3.  The interest or discount shall be a maximum of fifteen dollars per one hundred dollars per year, which shall be computed as a fifteen percent add-on interest rate, plus an additional service charge of ten dollars per premium finance agreement which need not be refunded on cancellation or prepayment; except that, if the insurance premiums being financed are for other than personal, family or household purposes, the parties to the premium finance agreement may agree to any rate of interest which shall be stated in the premium finance agreement.  The interest or discount permitted by this subsection anticipates timely repayment in consecutive monthly installments equal in amount for a period of one year.  For repayment in greater or lesser periods or in unequal, irregular, or other than monthly installments, the interest or discount may be computed at an equivalent effective rate having due regard for the timely payments of installments.

  4.  Notwithstanding the provisions of any premium finance agreement, any insured may prepay the obligation in full at any time and shall receive a refund credit.  The amount of the refund shall be calculated by the actuarial method of calculating refunds and no more interest shall be retained by the lender than is actually earned.
