# Ultimate Financial Calculator

The Ultimate Financial Calculator (UFC) is the most sophisticated, most flexible calculator on AccurateCalculators.com and I think on the entire internet.

See the tutorials for step-by-step instructions.

If you are someone who needs date accurate results with either regular or irregular cash flows (loans, payments, deposits, withdrawals, investments), this is the calculator you should study and use.

#### Recent changes and enhancements

- Sept. 2023: Export any schedule's data to
**Excel/xlsx**file. Click on "Schedule" then "Continue" past the title page. - Nov. 2023: Save schedule's data to
**Word/docx**file. Saving to a .docx gives you the opportunity to alter the style of the schedule, to add notes, or incorporate the schedule into a report. - User inputs are automatically sorted prior to file save and calculation. This fixes the issue where the "Unknown" would not calculate due to overlaping dates in different cash flow series unless user had clicked the "Expand" button.

hello, do you offer an API for this calculator? Please let me know as this is something i would like to add to my site if possible.

## Karl says:

I do not have an API for the UFC calculator.

## mike says:

do you have any plans for that? Or is this project open sourced? I would love to add this to my site for my employees as a resource. Please let me know.

## Karl says:

Please feel free to purchase subscriptions to the UFC for your employees. 🙂 $49.95/year.

I have no plans to support an API or to make the calculator open source.

## Floyd says:

I am trying to do a very simple amortization schedule for an October 4, 2023 $6,144.89 loan with no interest and fixed payments of $500.00 beginning November 4, 2023 and continuing until paid. I should be able to do this on two lines – one with the loan amount and one with the payment series by entering the loan amount and the number of frequencies as “Unknown”. However, when I hit calculate, it creates a payment date one month prior to the loan date. Can you help resolve this issue? Thanks.

## Karl says:

I agree with what you say. That is a problem. I made a change last week and introduced an auto sort feature when the user clicks calculate. That "broke" the calculator when the number of periods is unknown.

There is a workaround so that you can get an accurate schedule.

Notice that even though the payment is one month before the loan, the number of payments is calculated. Using your example the unknown value is 13.

Using that information, set up the calculation again, but rather than entering "unknown" for the #, enter the calculated result from the first calculation i.e. 13.

You can then click on the "Schedule" button to get an accurate payment schedule.

I should be able to get this fixed sometime next week.

## Karl says:

I just noticed you said "no interest". I had my rate set to 6.5%. With a 0% loan, the number of payments calculated will be 12, not 13.

## Karl says:

The problem Floyd reported was fixed as of Sept. 29, 2023.

## edward says:

I need a loan calculator a loan calculator. It needs to take a sum, put the term and the interest trate, I need to be able to get a pay schedual. now this does all that but I need to add in an eliment. what if the first 12 or 24 months were “holiday” so at the end the of that 12 months or 24, the total interest would be due then the next month is a normal payment. Also one more thing to ad, some loans are interest plus principal, others are just intrest…

## Karl says:

Everything you need to do is doable with the UFC (Ultimate Financial Calculator).

Have you seen these 25 tutorials?

#13 is about odd length first periods. You’ll want to enter line 1 as the loan amount and then the 2nd line will be 12 or 24 months later. Set long period interest to with first.

#14 is about interest-only loans and interest-only series.

This should get you started. If you have other questions, please ask.
