(1) A fee or charge payable by a debtor for an amount payable or to reimburse an amount paid by the creditor to another person, body, or agency must not exceed the actual amount payable by the creditor if that amount is ascertainable when the fee or charge is paid by the debtor.
(2) The actual amount payable must be determined by taking into account any discount, rebate, or allowance received or receivable by the creditor or any related company.
(3) If the actual amount paid by the creditor to another person, body, or agency is not ascertainable when the debtor pays an amount to the creditor for the fee or charge and is less than the amount paid by the debtor, the creditor must refund or credit the difference to the debtor.
(4) Nothing in this section requires a rebate on tax payable by the creditor or a related company to be taken into account in determining the actual amount paid or payable by the creditor.
(5) For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this section prevents a reasonable commission from being payable or paid to a creditor in connection with any credit-related insurance taken out by the debtor.
