Bank Loan Related Information
The loan related information you have collected from a Bank are:
|Term Loan Amount||1,000,000||USD|
|Total No. of Payment||5||Times|
|Periodic Interest Rate||10%||Percent|
Then you need to calculate the periodic payment of your loan. To calculate this, you can use the formula and put it in your notebook and then calculate the payment.
But if you use excel then you will find an inbuilt function which will make your job easier. The function is the “PMT” function.
Calculation of Periodic payment is necessary because it will show you how much money you need to pay for each payment. This is definitely a cash outflow for you or your business. You must have to do a cash flow forecast so that you can check whether there is available money on your hand to do repayment of your loan.
Periodic Payment = $263,797 USD
- Rate = Periodic Interest Rate
- NPER = Total Number of Payment
- Pv = Present Value of the Amount that is loan amount (should input as a negative value to get the positive result)
- FV = Future Value of Loan

- The interest amount can be calculated by multiplying the beginning balance of that period multiplies the periodic interest rate.
- The principal amount is the difference between the payment amount in that period minus interest amount.
- You will get the ending balance of a loan by subtracting the periodic principal amount from the beginning value of the unpaid loan amount.
- After filling the first row you can copy the formulas to the following period then your loan repayment schedule will be there.
