Related: These calculators calculate loan payment amounts as well. However, they are more feature rich. For example, with many you can set the dates and/or add extra payments.

This payment calculator assumes monthly payments while user enters number of years. User has fewer options with this calculator than with other calculators on this site, but that makes the calculator faster to use and smaller - making it a particularly good choice for smaller screens. (Though our other calculators will work fine on small screens too.)

This calculator will solve for any one of four possible unknowns: "Amount of Loan", "Number of Years" (term), "Annual Interest Rate" or the "Payment Amount".

Enter a '0' (zero) for one unknown value.

Normally you would set the "Payment Method" to "Arrears" for a loan. This means that the monies are lent on one day and the first payment isn't due until one period after the funds are received.

If the first payment is due on the day the funds are available, then set "Payment Method" to "Advance". This is typical for leases.

I cannot find an option to edit first payment date.

Use this loan calculator instead. You’ll be able to select a loan date and a different first payment date on the "Options" tab. It will also solve for any unknown, including payment amount.
