Calculation of loan interest rate

Loan interests are calculated on the actual loan balance, considering 365 days in the year. The nominal interest rate of the loan remains unchanged during the entire effective period of the loan.

The annual factual interest rate is calculated by the following formula

Where,

  • “A” is the loan amount, (the initial amount of loan provided by the lender to the borrower.
  • “n” is the amount f the loan repayment fee,
  • “N” is the last payment for the loan repayment,
  • “Kn” is the “n”-th amount loan repayment,
  • “Pn” is the period between the date of loan issuance and the n-th repayment, expressed with the number of the days,
  • “i” is the annual factual interest rate, which can be calculated, if the other details of the equity are known from the loan agreement or otherwise.

Example of calculation of loan interest amounts

Simple example of calculation of a loan interest rate: (Loan amount* interest rate)/ number of months (or days)

Thus, when providing a loan of AMD 2,000,000  at 18% annual interest rate and 36 months of repayment period, the average monthly interest due to payment shall be

AMD =(2,000,000*0.56*0.18*3+2,000,000)/36=72,355

Should be mentioned that the actual amount of monthly interests would depend on the loan repayment schedule, yet not exceed the average amount specified above.

Other fees

  • Lump-sum fee equal to 3% of the loan amount, but not less than AMD 3,000

Penalties

  • In case of delays of loan interests and/or principle payment, a fine is imposed  at the rate of 0.1% on overdue amount  (overdue loan amount and overdue interest amount), for each day of delay
