Business Loan Amortisation Table

A business loan amortisation table is a table designed to help a borrower calculate the total cost of business finance products such as small business loans. Typically, when you are approved for business lending, your business loan will be split over equal repayments scheduled over the term of your loan. Loans repaid in this way are considered amortised.

You may be offered daily, weekly or monthly payments. Each repayment that you make on your business loan will usually include a portion of the interest and principal payable on your loan – and any applicable fees. The types of fees you’ll find in the lending market may include account keeping fees and establishment fees. At Prospa we will tell you about what fees are payable and we’ll factor them into the total financed amount to be covered by the repayments you make. Prospa’s small business loans come with the option of daily or weekly repayments.

Business loans from Prospa are designed to support Australian businesses and help business owners with a fresh injection of cash flow – that can be paid back over the term of your loan with cash flow friendly repayments.

Are business loans amortised?

Business loans are generally amortised. A business loan amortisation table is a complete table showing the full schedule of repayments required for repaying the amount of your loan spread equally over your loan term. This table usually shows the principal amount (the amount that you have actually borrowed) as well as the amount of interest that you pay on that loan.

With an amortised loan, your business loan repayments may be scheduled evenly throughout the loan term and each repayment will usually be the same. However, when you begin repaying your loan, the percentage of that repayment comprising your interest amount is usually higher than it is at the end of your loan. That percentage diminishes over time and more of the repayment that you are making will actually go toward the principal amount instead. At some point, later in your repayment schedule, the majority (if not all) of the repayment that you are making goes toward the principal amount.

The purpose of a business loan amortisation table is to show loan applicants the complete repayment schedule. A debt is considered to have been amortised when it is repaid in equal repayments over the term of the debt.

How is interest calculated on a business loan?

When you accept the terms of a loan contract for a business loan from Prospa, that contract will clearly show the interest rate offered to you. Business loan interest rates can be different to personal credit products like personal credit cards. To help you understand how a Prospa small business loan might work for your business, Prospa has developed a business loan calculator. You’ll need the total amount you wish to borrow and you’ll need to select the loan term from the options available. Your repayment calculations will show you the weekly repayment, number of repayments and a total payback amount. Any output from the business loan calculator is provided as a general guide only. The Prospa loan calculator applies an indicative annual simple interest rate of 19.9% p.a. to the loan amount and loan term input you select.

What is the typical interest rate on a business loan?

There are a lot of factors which might affect the interest rate offered on any finance product including the amount of the loan, the business’s industry and the term of the loan. One of the main factors relates to the risk of the loan that is being offered. Lenders will usually offer lower rates to applicants with the strongest cash flows, business experience and credit ratings.
