Amortization Chart & Printable Schedule

Original Size

US National Debt Calculator handles debts to $99 trillion. Amortize entire debt or your family's share of the debt (surprise!). Also, generic use for bond coupon schedules.

Need to amortize a really big debt?Important Note About Dates: This calculator allows irregular length first periods. That is, the calculator calculates the exact amount of interest due even when the initial period is shorter or longer than the other scheduled periods. This will produce interest charges that do not match other calculators. If you want to match other calculators then set the "Loan Date" and "1st Payment Date" so that they equal one full period as set in "Payment Frequency". Example: If the "Loan Date" is May 15th and the "Payment Frequency" is "Monthly", then the "1st Payment Date" should be set to June 15th, that is IF you want a conventional interest calculation. See the end of the "Help" text for some more details.

Don't want to be bothered setting dates? No problem. Use this loan calculator. It also creates an amortization schedule.

Every loan has four primary attributes or variables. (1) The loan amount, (2) the number of payments, (3) the annual interest rate and (4) the payment amount.

Enter any 3 values and zero ('0') for the unknown value. Click the [Calc] button to solve for the unknown and create a schedule.

Note: you can enter a non-zero value for all 4 variables. In that case, your inputs will be used to create the amortization schedule.

The "Loan Date" is the date the monies are advanced. It is also called the "origination date".

The "First Payment Date" is the date the first payment is due. It may be the same date as the "Loan Date" but not usually. When they are the same, this is known as "Payment-in-Advance". Leases are typically paid-in advance.

"Payment Frequency" determines how often payments are due. Monthly is the most common in the USA.

"Compounding" impacts how interest is calculated. In most cases "Compounding" should equal the "Payment Frequency".

"Points" are charged on some loans by the lender. Points are expressed as a percentage of the loan amount. A 300,000.00 loan with 2 points results in an extra fee due the lender of 6,000.00. Points are common for mortgages in the US only. Normally, you will want to leave this input set to 0.0%.

The "Amortization Method" should usually be set to "Normal". If the loan originates in "Canada" then you'll want to set this to the "Canadian" method. In some special cases loans will have only the interest paid as the regular payment or no interest at all. In that case, you can set the "Amortization Method" to accommodate those types of loans. The "Rule-of-78's" is sometimes used for car loans or other consumer loans.

To print any loan schedule, click on "Print Preview" and then "Print this schedule".

When the first period, the period of time between the "loan date" and the "first payment date" is longer than one full period, there will be interest due for the "extra days". This is known as "odd day interest". The odd day interest, with this schedule, is shown as being paid on the loan date. Example: if the "loan date" is March 24 and the "first payment date" is May 1, then there are 8 odd days of interest - March 24th to April 1st.

Conversely, if the time between the "loan date" and "first payment date" is less than the payment period set, then the first period is said to be a "short initial period" and the first payment will be reduced due to less interest being owed.

What is amortization? According to vocabulary.com, "amortization means a debt is being paid off by a series of payments".

Thanks for your amortization loan schedule. It was easy, accurate, fast and looks great printed for me. I’ll use it more in the future.

Good to hear. Thank you.

Thank you for providing this amortization calculation service.

I just sold my building on a land contract and needed a chart for the new buyers

and myself as well. Great community service–you are appreciated!

I use it as an educational tool for a personal finance course I am teaching. I like that the payments are numbered, as well as being summarized by calendar year for tax purposes. Thanks for providing it!

I used this schedule when my son bought the other half of their business from his partner. It was okay until he missed two payments and I don’t know how to make it recalculate. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks for letting me know. Please try the Ultimate Financial Calculator. It is better suited for missed or irregular payments.

Scroll down the page and there are a number of tutorials. Tutorial #1 will give you an overview, and #25 is written for your specific need.

I am calculating the interest due me on a note I hold. Very good program! Thanks

if there is a loan of amount 100,000 with 10% interest paid semi annually

how ca i make amortization tabel for it?

Does the semiannual payment include both principal and interest? Or are they interest only payments?

Just interest paid samiannual

In that case, set the "Payment Frequency" and "Compounding" to "Semiannually".

Then, under "Amortization Method", select "Interest Only".

That should give you exactly what you need. If not, please ask again.

What a time saver! Our office just entered into a new capitalized lease and I was not provided an amortization schedule to determine the amount of interest and principal each month from a fixed monthly payment.

Thank you

Hello,

Excellent work

Are you able to share the formula to calculate the irregular first payment? Thank you

Hi Shane, thank you. But I don’t get into the math behind the calculations. It’s too much of a quaqmire. As this website is a part-time endeavor, I decided to limit my support to those that need assistance modeling a financial calculation.

However, I can tell you this. I saw a question on one of the Stack Exchange sites just last week and it dealt specifically with this calculation. In fact, they had a screen shot of a calculator from this site. 🙂 The accepted answer was very thorough. Unfortunately, I can’t find it now.

Hello, I love using this amortization calculator as we are in the legal business and do a lot of Land Contracts. However, there are times when we need to enter 0% interest (family to family, etc.) and the program won’t let me do that or do I just not know what I am doing?

Is there a way to allow the balance of an amortized loan not to be included in the final payment of the loan??
