Business Loan Index – Terms used by Lenders
The rapid growth of MSME sector in India means there is a lot of financial lending activity going on right now. While applying for these unsecured business loans and working capital loans, entrepreneurs are often left asking for explanation of certain banking terms used by the lenders.
In this post, we are covering the commonly used terms by an online lender or an offline commercial institution, when granting business loans. An understanding of these terms will not only help you make an informed decision in the future but will also help you get loan approvals faster, as you explain your business loan preferences to the lender from the very outset.
Fixed Obligations to Income Ratio (FOIR)
The cumulative total of instalments of loans already availed by you and still due in relation to your income.
Annual Reducing Interest Rates
The principal amount on which you are paying interest is reduced at the end of every year.
Monthly Reducing Interest Rates
The principal amount on which you are paying interest is reduced at the end of every month.
Daily Reducing Interest Rates
The principal amount on which you are paying interest is reduced at the end of every day.
*The EMI you pay for a daily reducing rate is less than the one you will pay under a monthly reducing rate. Similarly, annual reducing rates will have the highest EMI.
A monthly installment has 2 components; the Interest component and the Principal. Amortization schedule shows the amount of interest and principal you will be repaying with each payment.
It means making an early repayment of the loan to reduce the tenure as well as the interest of the loan. Non-banking financial companies like Lendingkart, do not charge pre-closure fees.
An equated monthly installment is a fixed payment from the borrower to a lender on a specified date of each calendar month. EMIs are used to pay off both interest and principal (see Amortisation Schedule).
