How to Calculate Finance Charge
Following is the general finance charge formula that shows how to calculate finance charge quickly and easily.
Finance Charge = Current Balance * Periodic rate, where
Periodic Rate = APR * billing cycle length / number of billing cycles in the period.
For example, following is how we calculate the finance charge for a loan of $1,000 with a 18% APR and a billing cyles of 25 days.
1. Convert APR to decimal: 18/100 = 0.18
2. Calculate period rate: 0.18 * 25 / 365 = 0.0123
3. Calculate finance charge: 1000 * 0.0123 = 12.33
* billing cycle is 365 in a year since we are calculating by "days". If we were to use months, then the number of billing cycles is 12 or 52 if we
were calculating by week.
