Loan Amortization Schedule in Excel

Loan Amortization is the paying back off of a loan or debt amount in terms of instalments that are spread over a particular period of time. We can get a better understanding of this by taking an auto loan or home loan two of its examples. For an auto loan or a home loan, the lender pays off the amount in many instalments, which are then divided into small amounts to be paid over a much longer period of time by creating a loan amortization schedule.

To begin with, the first few instalments that are paid out will go as the interest to be paid. Later, in due course, the instalment amount paid will begin to compensate the initial loan amount.

This way, both interest and the principal amounts to be paid against the loan borrowed by the lender are covered, within the period of payback.
