REMARKS |

* This function defines the interest payment for a given period of an annuity based on periodic, fixed payments and a fixed interest rate. * An annuity is a series of fixed cash payments made over a period of time. * An annuity can be a loan (such as a home mortgage) or an investment (such as a monthly savings plan). * The "rate" and "nper" arguments must be in the same units (days, months, years). * The "per" can be any value between 1 and "nper". * If "fv" is left blank, then 0 is used. * If "type" = True, then payments are due at the beginning of the period * If "type" = False, then payments are due at the end of the period. * If "type" is left blank, then False is used. * For all arguments, any cash paid out is represented by negative number and any cash received is represented by positive numbers. * The equivalent Excel function is Application.WorksheetFunction.IPMT.* The equivalent .NET function is Microsoft.VisualBasic.Financial.IPmt* Example - If you have an annual interest rate of 10%, and you make monthly payments then "rate" per period is (10/100 * 1/12) = 0.0083. * Example - If you are making monthly payments for 5 years then your "nper" is (5*12) = 60. * Example - When you borrow money to buy a car, the "present value" is the amount you are paying back to the lender ? * For the Microsoft documentation refer to docs.microsoft.com |
