What is the monthly credit installment composed of?
The rate consists of two components: principal and interest. The principal represents a portion of the borrowed amount that is returned to the bank monthly, and the interest represents the monthly cost of the loan. The longer the loan period, the weight of interest in the monthly rate increases, especially in the first half of the loan period. This is because in the early years, the loan balance is high, and the interest is calculated according to this balance.
How is the loan repayment in equal installments calculated?
In this situation, in the early stages of the repayment period, the bank will allocate a relatively small amount of the monthly installment to cover the principal (the amount borrowed), while the majority difference will be represented by costs (interest and fees applied to the remaining principal of returned). As time passes, the proportion of the principal in the total amount of the rate will increase, reversing the ratio of the component parts of the rate. In the case of equal rates, the debt to the bank (the amount borrowed) will decrease at a slower rate.
How is the repayment of the loan calculated in decreasing installments?
In this situation, the borrowed amount is divided into equal installments, and the monthly installment is composed of a principal installment and the costs applied to the principal to be returned to the bank. Although the initial payment amount may be about 20% higher than in the case of equal installments, as the loan repayment period progresses, the customer will pay a lower monthly installment. It is also important to note that the borrowed principal to the bank is constantly reduced by the same amount.
