Flat interest is a calculation scheme that calculates the interest portion directly from the loan principal, divided equally by the tenor. While effective interest is a calculation scheme that calculates the proportion of interest proportionally from the remaining principal on each installment until the loan period ends.
For example, the Lender provides funding of IDR 10,000,000 for each loan with a 6-month tenor, flat interest and effective 12% per annum. Then the Lender will get the following returns:
|Month||Principal (IDR)||Return (IDR)||Total Repayment (IDR)|
|Month||Principal (IDR)||Return (IDR)||Total Repayment (IDR)|
Keep in mind that the interest rate displayed on the fact sheet is the interest rate per year, so it must be adjusted to the loan tenor itself.
*) Calculation of return interest for the first month is assuming the disbursement is in accordance with the date of the installment payment by the Borrower. First month interest may change following the date of loan disbursement.
**) For loans that are still subject to tax, the interest calculation has not been calculated with interest tax.
