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.
If the two-fold of the banking rate (settlement banking interest rated established by the CBA) is less than the interest rate defined by the Company, the two-fold banking rate shall be defined as a maximum interest rate.
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*0.18/36= AMD 10,000. It 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.
- Lump-sum fee for loan provision equal to 2% of the loan amount
- In case of delays of loan interests and/or principle payment, a fine is imposed at the rate of 0.2% on overdue amount (overdue loan amount and overdue interest amount), for each day of delay
- At 1% of the amount repaid during no later that six months since the date of signing of the loan agreement.
In the event of failure to fulfill, or improper fulfillment of, obligations assumed by the borrower, the Company takes relevant measures to confiscate and/or realize the property and/or other funds of the borrower and/or the guarantor, in the manner stipulated by the RA legislation.
