Free Loan Amortization Calculator
With Unknown Variable Calculation

[ Skip to Calculator ] Calcy pointing down

Helps you to find the missing loan term if any three of the four terms are known, and provides a printable loan amortization schedule.

This online Free Loan Amortization Calculator will calculate the unknown variable from three known variables -- for all of the most common payment intervals.

Plus, unlike most other loan amortization calculators, the calculator on this page gives you the option to create and print a free loan amortization schedule.

If you are making a monthly payment and you're not interested in printing out any loan amortization tables, please visit the Missing Term Loan Calculator.

Most Commonly Used to Find the Payoff Amount

If you know any 3 of the 4 loan variables (principal, interest rate, monthly payment and number of payments remaining) this calculator will use TVM (time value of money) calculations to calculate the unknown variable.

The most common use for this calculator is to calculate the current payoff amount of existing loans. After all, you usually know the annual interest rate, the number of payments remaining, and the monthly payment amount. What's not always clear is how much money it will take to pay off a loan this month.

That's because the payoff amount cannot be arrived at by simply multiplying the monthly payment amount by the number of payments remaining, as future payments include interest charges that will not apply if the loan is paid off early.

With that, let's use the free loan amortization calculator to calculate the unknown variable, and then create and print the loan amortization chart if you so desire.

Instructions: Select the loan's payment interval and enter the three known variables while leaving the unknown variable blank, then click the "Calculate Unknown Loan Variable" button.

Once you have solved for the unknown variable, feel free to click the "Printer Friendly Loan Amortization Schedule" button, which will open a pop-up window containing a loan amortization chart that you can print out.

Mouse over the blue question marks for a further explanation of each entry field. More in-depth explanations can be found in the glossary of terms located beneath the Free Loan Amortization Calculator.

Updated November 27, 2012: Added other interval payment options (weekly, bi-weekly, etc.) in cases where the missing loan term is for a loan having non-monthly payment intervals. If you have used this calculator in the past, please be sure to refresh the page (F5 key) a couple of times to insure you are viewing the latest version.

Payment interval: Select the payment interval stated in the original loan terms.

Principal or current payoff amount: If known, enter the principal balance or current payoff amount. Otherwise leave blank and complete the other three fields.

Annual interest rate: If known, enter the annual interest rate as a percentage (for .065, enter 6.5%). If the interest rate is not known, to save the free loan amortization calculator from making unnecessary iterations, please select your best guess from the drop down menu (default guess is 10%) and the calculator will attempt to calculate the rate for you given the other three known variables.

Payments remaining: If known, enter the number of payments remaining on the loan. Otherwise, leave blank and complete the other three fields.

Payment amount: If known, enter the monthly payment amount. Otherwise, leave blank and complete the other three fields.

Unknown variable: This cell will state the the title of the unknown variable that has been calculated, with the amount of the unknown variable located in the right-hand column.

Total years: This result converts the number of monthly payments remaining to the number of years remaining.

Total payments: This result is the total of all payments between now and when the balance is paid off.

Total interest: This result is the total interest that will be paid between now and when the balance is paid off.
