Per diem interest is the interest charged on a loan on a daily basis. The finance charge is interest calculated since the last time a payment was made. Often, you have a loan payoff at a point in time and it doesn’t close and you need to determine the per diem interest for each day the loan doesn’t get paid off.
At the end of the year, we have customers call for assistance with compound interest loans (Normal Amortization) who ask “How do I calculate my year-end interest accruals or interest paid?” With compound interest loans and irregular payments, this can be challenging, but there is an alternative way to calculate them. Let’s show you how TValue can assist in calculating year-end interest accruals and interest paid.
Occasionally, we get a customer that has a unique situation where they have to do daily payments. Sometimes they are only during the business week and sometimes they are 7 days a week. This is a calculation that you can do in TValue but it takes a little bit of creativity to do it.
