  • can i record more than 9 payments our do i have to buy the program

    • The only limit to the number of individual payments you can enter is your patience.

      Use the "Next" button at the bottom of the page once the first nine are entered. (Or click on the page 2 button.)

      If you reach the end, you can click on the "Insert" button to add more empty rows.

    Do you have a calculator to calculate the Adjusted Cost Base for a financial REIT investment with monthly dividends re invested?
    Thank you for your reply

  • Is there any way to save data in calculator to use later?

    • Not with the web version. If you want to save your inputs, and if you are running Windows, then take a look at the C-Value! program. $49.95, one-time purchase price. C-Value! is functionally equivalent to the online Ultimate Financial Calculator.

  • I have pretty much tried pretty much every bi-weekly Loan amortization schedule on the web. Yours is the most accurate by a long shot. Thank you!!!!!!

    • You’re welcome! And thanks for letting me know how the competition is stacking up. 🙂

      If you used this calculator to create the biweekly amortization schedule, you might also be interested in this dedicated biweekly payment calculator. It will create a single schedule incorporating both a monthly and a biweekly loan so that you can easily compare the two scenarios.

  • Hello Karl,

    This is JP I emailed you last week regarding our calculations above that when entering a higher mortgage payment than required, your calculator drops it back down to a minimum required monthly payment. How do we get your calculator to accept our higher monthly payment so we can see the term shorten?

    Am I using the correct calculator?

    JP @ NextGen

    • Hi, I thought I had replied but i can’t find it, so I must not have. Sorry.

      I wouldn’t use the balloon calculator for that calculation since there is no balloon payment. I would use this calculator.

      But if you want to use the balloon calculator, the issue it is having is, you’ve provide loan amount, rate, term and payment amount. You’ve also stated that there is no long period or odd day interest, even though it’s a long period. Since so many things are known, and are not compatible, the calculator is adjusting the payment amount (reducing it) so as to have a 0 balance at the end of the term. If the payment amount didn’t get adjusted then the term would not be what you specified. Something has to give. You could set the term to 0 so the calculator can calculate it with the payment amount you want. If you do that, enter $1,853,639.00 for the regular periodic payment as well as the final balloon payment (the final payment will be adjusted since the calculator calculate term by whole periods. That is, the term can not be 204 1/2 periods.

    i want to embed financial calcualtors over my website….how can i do that

  • Hello! I have only one question, how can I calculate the initial Loan amount when I start to pay after a certain period? For example I made a Loan the 01/01/2019, with unknown amount, and I begin to pay the 01/01/2021. I have the final amount with each payment amount, the interest rate but I don’t have any other number. Thank you very much!

    • Hi, do the loan payments vary in amount? If not, you need only create two rows. The first row, as you mentioned is for an unknown loan amount with the loan date set to 01/01/2019.

      The 2nd row, enter the payment amount, payment frequency and number of payments. You can set the date for the payment row to 01/01/2021. Then check under "Settings" for long period interest options.

      In your question, you didn’t mention the number of payments. If you don’t know that, then you can’t solve for the loan amount. When it comes to loan calculations, with respect to the four main variables, loan amount, interest rate, number of payments and payment amount, only one can be an unknown at a time. Think about it. If two are unknown, then the results are infinite.

  • This question relate to Leases. Do the calculators available online support Continuously Compounded Daily discounting for Quarterly lease payments. For example, 19 Quarterly payments of $51,300 starting from 25 March 2019 and ending 25 September 2023. Interest rate: 4.42%. I need to discount it back to 1 January 2019 with daily frequency and continuous compounding. I’ve done it on excel and the total PV is either $874,928.41 or $875,028.21 (depending on day count for the period between payment dates).

    • Faisal, this calculator will do the calculation you need. However, the results are slightly different. The PV for the scenario you specified is $873,746.96 using a 360-day year, and $875,034.36 using a 365-day year. If you need to know how to set up the calculation, just ask.

      • Thank you Karl for your swift response, much much appreciated. Indeed it does and I got to the same results you noted above using the tool and manually using excel (including the digits). But I’m unable to match it exactly to how the oracle system does it. It is insignificant difference by all means but it is bugging me. But your tool gave me confidence in my excel workings.

  • This is the best calculator I have ever found with all the inputs I have wanted, is there a way to save it and use it on a Mac please?

    • Thank you!

      My program C-Value! (link at the top of all web pages) works like this calculator and it allows users to save their inputs and settings. $49.95.

      However, it only runs on Windows. There are programs for Mac that allow you to run Windows programs however. Parallels is one that I know about.

  • Our contract initially had a 3 month month repayment schedule, and includes a 10% penalty for missed (not skipped), late, or short payments. How do you incorporate these types of situations in the calculator?
    In this example, our customer had a $50,385 loan that was to be repaid in three monthly $17,019.43 installments based on an 8.00% annual interest rate. It seemed simple enough until they were late and short paid their first payment. Now I’m scrambling to figure out how much they owe.

    • You can add the penalty to the loan balance as a new loan or fee. You’ll need to calculate the penalty. That is, calculator won’t calculate the penalty amount for you. (Is it 10% of the balance of the loan? Or 10% of the payment amount due?)

  • Hi – this is great, thanks for it! How do I build in tax impact if I am doing a calculation of deposits and withdrawals for retirement?

  • I have a note where the principal is $225,000.00 amortized over 72 months. Interest is 7.5% for the first 5 years and then 10% for the remaining year. Please help 🙂

  • I am trying to set up a loan with irregular payments and payment amounts. How do I do that in the cavalue program. I don’t seem to get anything but to set a loan value

    • The way you go about it will vary a bit depending on how irregular the payments are. If they are completely random, then what you’ll need to do is enter the first row as a loan amount, and then each following row will be a payment with a date and an amount.

      For for more detail instructions, and another copy of this calculator, please see this page.

      If you have, say 6 regular payments, followed by 1 single payment with a different amount followed by 6 more regular payments, then enter the first row as the loan, followed by a payment row with 6 in the "# Periods" column, followed by the single payment on the irregular date with or without an irregular amount, followed by 6 payments again.

      If this isn’t clear, please ask again.

  • Hi, I am trying to do a savings calculation where I have a monthly deposit that increases by 2 percent every 12 months, and then a yearly deposit that increased by a fixed amount each year. For some reason, when I make the cash flow adjustment for the annual deposit, it converts that deposit frequency to a monthly deposit even though the calculator input still shows I selected “annual” for frequency.

    • You are right. Something is wrong. It seems that it is not possible to have two different series where one uses a percentage step and the other uses an amount step.

      I’ll try to have a fix for this by Feb. 1.

      Sorry for the problem.

  • Hi, I have a loan where there is a 9 month grace period between the date the loan was made and the first payment. When I enter the loan and payment information, the amortization schedule is showing a negative principal payment for the first payment to offset the interest that accrued during the first 9 months. Any recommendations on how to adjust the schedule?

    • Yes. I assume you want to see a larger first payment to allow for the accrued interest?

      Click on the settings button and select "Interest Options" At the top of the window that opens, you’ll see "If initial cash flow period is longer than the payment frequency:" with 4 options. Select "With First"

      But, in confirming the steps for this answer, I see there is a bug in the calculation. The long period setting are only working if there is also at least one odd day’s interest. If you mean exactly 9 months, say April 1 to Jan 1, 2021, then the calculation is not adjusting the first payment. Please set the first date to March 31. Then it works.

      If you want it to be exactly 9 months (this is assuming your payments are on a monthly schedule) then set up the screen with 3 rows. 1 loan row, followed by 1 payment row and then the 3rd row with the payment series. You can do some math based on the earlier schedule you mention to enter the payment amount for the 1st payment and then create the schedule.If this is not clear, let me know and I’ll give you an example.

      • Thank you for the quick response. No, the first payment would not be larger than the other payments. It ends up being a 60 month loan paid over 51 months in equal installments.

      • Thank you for the quick response. No, the first payment would not be larger than the other payments. It ends up being a 60 month loan paid over 51 months in equal installments.

        • Oh, in that case there is no problem. The schedule is accurate.

          For example, when this calculator first loads, as of today, it shows a loan row for $250,000 taken out on April 1 and a payment row with an unknown payment amount for 180 payments and a payment due on May 1.

          You want the first payment due 9 months after the loan. So change the date to Jan 1, 2021. Can click Calc (or schedule).

          The monthly payment is calculated to be $2,311.10. The payment is the same for all 179 payments, including the first payment. The 180th payment is round by $0.31.

          However, note, the interest between April 1, 2020 and Jan 1, 2021 is $15,742.96. That’s a mathematical fact. But since the payment is only $2,311.10, the payment does not cover the interest and it’s added back to the loan balance (negative principal). In other words, by the time the first payment is paid, the loan balance (due to accrued interest) is greater then when the loan was taken out on April 1, 2020.

          If you want to track accrued interest as a separate balance, that can be done.

          Set the "Calculate Method" to "US Rule."
