Flat interest rate is a calculation scheme that calculates the interest portion directly from the loan principal, divided equally by the loan tenor. Meanwhile, effective interest rate is a calculation scheme that calculates the proportion of interest proportionately from the remaining principal on each installment (or in Lender’s case, remaining returns) until the end of the loan period.
For example, Lender do IDR 10,000,000 funding on each flat and effective 12%p.a. loan with 6 months tenor. You need to remember that interest rate displayed on the fact sheet is annual based, so it must be adjusted to the loan tenor itself. Then, Lender will get the following returns:
|Month||Principal (IDR)||Return (IDR)||Total Repayment (IDR)|
|Month||Principal (IDR)||Return (IDR)||Total Repayment (IDR)|
*) Interest calculation based on assumption that disbursement date same with the installment date, interest on first month repayment can changes following the date of loan disbursement.
**) Interest calculation doesn’t include tax on interest.
