## PMT Function in Excel

First thing first lets discuss syntax of PMT Function in detail;

=PMT(rate,nper,pv,fv,[Type])

Where;

Rate is the interest rate for the loan.

Nper is the number of payments for the loan.

Pv is the present value of the loan.

Fv is the future value of the loan.

Type is an optional argument that tells Excel how to calculate payments. The default setting is 0, which calculates payments based on end-of-period balances. A value of â€“l specifies payments based on beginning-of-period balances.

## Mortgage Payment Using PMT Function

Â

Lets say, we have a mortgage loan with following details;

Monthly Interest Rate = 0.005 (0.05 / 12)

Number of Payments over the Years = 360

Present Value of Loan $100000

Future value $0 as its final payment on maturity date and last but not least pmt function calculates periodic payment. So our equation will be;

=PMT(0.005, 360, 100000, 0)

Which gives us the result of $483.47 as monthly mortgage payment.

## Annuity Payment Using PMT Function

Now lets take another example where we have an annuity loan with following details;

Monthly Interest Rate = 0.005 (0.05 / 12)

Number of Payments over the Years = 360

Present Value of Loan $100000

Future value $200000

Again pmt function calculates periodic payment so our equation will be;

=PMT(0.005, 360, 100000, 200000)

Which gives us the result of $288.24 as monthly annuity payment.

## PPMT Function (Bonus)

Now lets say you want to calculate only principal amount thatâ€™ll be carried at each pmt period then PPMT function will help;

=PPMT(0.005, 360, 100000)

Which gives us the result of $416.67 as monthly pmt carrying only principal amount.

## IPMT Function

Now lets discuss about IPMT function which is used to calculate interest payment for a given period;

=IPMT(0.005, 360, 100000)

Which gives us the result of $66.80 as monthly pmt carrying only interest amount.

## Conclusion

So these are all the basics about PMT function in Excel with some examples to make you understand it better. In next video we will discuss about Type argument value and its effects on calculation. Till then stay tuned and happy learning!
