How to Calculate Your Repayments

 
 

At RPM Finance, we understand the importance of understanding your payments when seeking financing. Knowing how to calculate payments correctly can help you make more informed financial decisions and ensure that you are prepared to honour your repayments. In this article, we will guide you through the process of calculating your payments in a simple and practical way.

 

Understanding the Components of Payment:

 

Before calculating your payments, it is important to understand the main components involved. Payments typically consist of three parts:

 

  1. Principal: The initial amount of the loan that you are paying back.

  2. Interest: The rate charged by the lender for the loan.

  3. Balloon (if applicable): A larger final payment than the remaining principal of the loan, common in some types of finance.

 

Additionally, the repayment term is also important, as it affects the total amount you will pay over time.

 

Interest Rate:

 

The interest rate is a crucial factor that influences your monthly payments. It represents the percentage of the loan amount that you pay to the lender as compensation for using the money. The higher the interest rate, the higher the total cost of the loan and consequently, the monthly payments. Several factors can affect your interest rate, including your credit score, credit history, type of loan, and market conditions. It is important to understand how these factors can influence your interest rates and, consequently, your monthly payments.

RPM Tip: Each lender has its own criteria that may favour or disfavour you depending on your situation. Thus, it’s essential to compare different lenders and understand all their requirements before making a decision.
