What is an amortization table?

An amortization table is a table where the payment schedule that a company or individual must face to which a loan is granted appears. It will show the different payments that the borrower will bear during the duration of the loan.

The term of the loan repayment table includes the status of the return of the money during the duration of the loan, knowing its evolution. It is made up of different columns made up of the following data:

  • 1st column: the period. The different terms with which the payment will have to be made.
  • 2nd column: the loan interest. The interests that the borrower must assume at all times are collected. The interest can be fixed or variable.
  • 3rd column: amortization of capital. The amortization refers to the repayment of the loan without taking into account the interest. This is what is discounted from each period of the pending capital.
  • 4th column: fee to be paid. Includes the sum of the interests and amortization.
  • 5th column: principal of the loan pending amortization. To obtain this figure, the outstanding capital of the previous cycle and the amortization of the current period must be subtracted in each period.
