Use LPPMT to calculate the principal payment for a specified payment for a loan or lease. LPPMT calculates the principal payment amount as the payment amount minus the interest payment amount. In the case of actuarial rule loans, this means that the principal payment may be negative, increasing the principal balance for the subsequent period. For US Rule loans, there will never be a negative principal payment arising from the interest payment.

This is zero because the interest for the odd long first period is greater than the periodic payment for the period. The reason for this is that we selected US Rule as the interest rule. The US rule does not permit the compounding of interest, so the entire payment is applied to interest, and difference between the interest accrued for the first period and actual interest payment is deferred into the next period rather than being added to the principal as is done under the actuarial method.

Let’s look at the same principal payment, but this time we will specify the actuarial method as the interest rule.

SELECT wct.LPPMT(

150000 --Loan Amount

,'10/13/2010' --Loan Start Date

,.12 --Annual Interest Rate

,'01/04/2011' --First Payment Date

The difference between the interest payment amount and the payment amount under the actuarial method is added to the principal, resulting a negative principal payment in the first period, increasing the outstanding principal balance.

If you don’t know the period number that you want, you can use the NPNO (Next Payment Number) or PPNO (Previous Payment Number) functions to calculate the period number.

In this example, we calculate the current period principal payment for a 50,000 5-year loan on 10/31/2010, which originated on 9/15/2008 at a rate of 5.5% with monthy payments commencing on 10/15/2008.
