  • With a myriad of local, state, and provincial sales and use tax jurisdiction, applying the correct tax rates is challenging for businesses of all sizes. For companies that do business across the US and Canada, sales tax software is an absolute must due to the sheer volume of tax jurisdictions involved. Even small businesses can benefit from a sales tax API as local sales tax rates can fluctuate from one city to the next -- and even within a given city if special districts have been created.

    DOTS FastTax is a sales tax API that instantly verifies addresses and pinpoints the correct taxability and jurisdiction assignment. DOTS FastTax sales tax software first validates the address entered, making sure that the address itself is correct and accurate. Typos, syntax errors, and other fixable mistakes are immediately corrected. Thus, with a correct address, the sales tax API can then retrieve the correct sales and use tax information.

    By using the sales tax API, you can instantly take an address and determine the correct city, city district, county, and state along with all corresponding city, city district, county, and state tax rates that apply. The sales tax API also calculates the total tax rate for an address and identifies tax exemptions such as freight, labor, and services, if any.

    Sales tax software takes the guesswork out of sales tax calculation. Instead of relying on wall charts, cheat sheets, or your employees' best guesses, use our sales tax API to validate the address and retrieve the most accurate sales and use tax information based on the customer's true address.

    In addition to ensuring that the correct sales and use tax rate is applied at the time of the transaction, this sales tax API minimizes audit risks. Use our sales tax software to ensure tax compliance and accuracy.

    Our sales tax software provides sales and use tax verification for US and Canadian addresses. As a sales tax web service, our API eliminates hardware costs and software maintenance hassles. DOTS FastTax can be seamlessly and easily integrated with existing accounting systems and eCommerce websites. It is easy to set up and even easier to use. ... Read Less

Loan Shark

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/380_image_loanshark_8662.png
Predatory lending at its worst.

Phoenix: "Win Through Compromise"?
Viola: That's Tender Lender's guiding principle. Compromise the customer to win.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials & Tribulations

A character borrows some money, but for whatever reason is unable to pay it back. Cue pursuit by some rather aggressive "providers of innovative financial services," who are determined to get their money back by any means necessary. The character really should have thought twice before borrowing money from the All-Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks.

A Loan Shark is a stock villain who typically loans money at high interest rates and will stop at nothing to get it back. The loan shark may be only too eager to use violence if necessary. He may also have mob connections — money-lending is a time-honored means for organized crime to use money gotten from any number of less-than-honest means, and the hounding of their victims for payment and interest is just another means of extortion. In some cases, a loan shark will be reluctant to kill a debtor because a corpse can't pay its dues.

Loan sharks feature a lot in action movies, where they're usually tied to The Mafia, The Triads and the Tongs, the Yakuza or whatever other organized crime group features as the primary villain of the piece. Typically, the person being hounded by the loan sharks is someone who ran up a nasty gambling debt or needed money for some other reason and had nowhere else to turn, and now they are putting the heat on him to get their money back (with interest) and the borrower is unable to pay. Enter the hero, who is usually a friend of said borrower, who comes across the loan sharks doing their bit of nasty, beats the crap out of them and sends them packing. The loan sharks get pissed and the conflict ensues.

Unfortunately, this is Truth in Television (although some real-life Loan Sharks can be more flexible than others), and some high schools show videos warning students about the dangers of borrowing from loan sharks. Actual banks, within the United States at least, do not operate under this trope and will in fact often accept pennies on the dollar rather than have to repossess cars and houses. Bankers do not want to own your collateral because they tend to have trouble selling it to get their money (doing so was what caused the sub-prime mortgage crisis of 2008). Also of note is payday lending, which, due to its legality, does not involve violence but is less lenient than banks.

Compare Morally Bankrupt Banker. Deal with the Devil is a fantasy equivalent of dealing with loan sharks.

For literal sharks see Threatening Shark.


Examples

    open/close all folders 

    Anime and Manga 
  • Half the premise of Hayate the Combat Butler is that the hero's parents, being pursued by exactly these kinds of loan sharks in the form of the Yakuza (a.k.a. the Very Nice People), agree to sell him to them for his organs without his knowledge in order to repay their debt.
    • Although that plotline is closed up in short order it's likely that both Hinagiku and Yukiji's parents and Luka have had dealings with these same type of people.
  • Binbou Shimai Monogatari has a father who ran away from a dangerous debt.
    • It turns out that he's paying his friend's debt, not his own.
  • One of the characters in Paranoia Agent owes the Yakuza a large amount of money. And it just keeps getting larger.
  • A running theme in seinen manga Wa Ga Na Wa Umishi is how they are ever going to pay off the astronomical $14 million debt they owe the bank. The slimy loan officer never fails to turn up to collect most of their earning whenever they do a succesful job.
  • Disaster survivors such as Faye Valentine of Cowboy Bebop didn't get their cryogenic treatment for free.
  • Higurashi: When They Cry. One of the cons run by Teppei and Rina. Teppei will lend money to gamblers. After they lose it, Rina will offer to loan them money so they can pay him back. True, the interest rate is downright extortionate, but being in debt to her is better than being in debt to him, right?
  • One Piece:
    • Paulie makes his entrance while being chased down a public street by a pair of suits demanding money. Apparently this happens a lot.
    • One could argue that Nami's original reason for stealing money was due to this, since she was attempting to buy her village free from Arlong and his fish-men. Bonus points for Arlong being an actual shark, too.
      • Nami herself also counts after she's freed from Arlong. Her typical lending rate is 300% interest, and if any situation involves scoring some extra cash, she goes from the Only Sane Man to no less reckless than the rest of her crew.
    • 'Arlong' even sounds like the Chinese dialect Hokkien phrase for 'loanshark' (at least in Singaporean Hokkien, see Live Action TV below).
    • One filler episode features a more heroic example, with a retired moneylender who used to lend money to pirates. Most of the pirates would try to just abscond without paying him back, at which point he chased after them to take it back by force.
  • Akumetsu kicks off with the initial female lead (who fades out of the story after a while) renting/selling herself into teenage prostitution because of her father's crushing debt, caused by a loan-sharking bank. At first it was indicated that her parents had sold her, a la Hayate above, but later it emerges that they have no idea she even knows how dire their financial straits are. The girl is rescued by Akumetsu, who kills the central bureaucratic fat cat with an axe before having his head blown off. A later arc involves Akumetsu taking on the leaders of various banks in a shame-and-threaten campaign on national television after running across the girl's father contemplating suicide by revenge-with-large-truck in a playpark on his way to school.
  • Garome from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, who even sends thugs after children. When forced to duel, his deck theme concentrates on loaning creatures to his opponent, then doing massive damage to them each turn if they can't get rid of the creatures. (Not that he's very competant, however. Sure, Jack Atlas should be a pushover... Sure, he beat the Dark Signers and survived a living nightmare, but I can beat him...)
  • The Otogi Bank from Ōkami-san functions this way, although they deal in social debts and not finances.
  • One entire manga is about loan sharks, Naniwa Kinyudo, though from a more realistic perspective - they operate legally if exploitatively, charging extremely high interest to desperate people, sometimes merely making sure they will get ahold of the collateral, but also doing things like manipulating them to take second jobs or go into prostitution.
  • More than one of these appear in Detective Conan. Unsurprisingly, they all become Asshole Victims of their cases. Of special note is the pawn shop owner Akira Sumida, who is such a bitch that at least three people want her head.
  • Tom of Durarara!! is a pleasant, even-tempered man who works in the Loan Shark business for some Yakuza-types. He doesn't like using violence and generally relies on his super-strong and hot tempered friend/partner Shizuou to frighten recalcitrant customers.
  • Those in Kaiji are quite happy to pursue not only their debtors but also those who have co-signed for them in nefarious ways.
  • The basic premise of [C] - Control is that mysterious beings loan people large amounts of money, with the condition that they must then gamble it in weekly inter-dimensional tournaments. Go bankrupt, and you lose your future, literally. The resident Loan Shark person, Masakaki, even regularly displays shark teeth when being particularly greedy.
  • While Knuckle from Hunter
