Calculator information

The Borrowing Power Calculator calculates a maximum potential loan amount available based on the income and expenses entered. The amount calculated is only an estimate of the amount to be borrowed and does not take into account specific factors used by individual lenders in determining their own criteria. The calculator also displays the type of repayment required, at the frequency requested, in respect of the loan parameters entered, namely amount, term and interest rate. The Product selected determines the default interest rate for standard variable products or the default interest rate and fixed period for fixed rate loans. In both scenarios, the customer can manually amend this interest rate. In the case of the fixed rate loans, the default standard variable interest rate will be used once the fixed period has completed.

These calculations are done at a monthly repayment frequency, in respect of the original loan parameters entered, namely amount, annual interest rate and term in years.

Calculator Assumptions

Length of Month

All months are assumed to be of equal length. In reality, many loans accrue on a daily basis leading to a varying number of days' interest dependent on the number of days in the particular month.

Number of Weeks or Fortnights in a Year

One year is assumed to contain exactly 52 weeks or 26 fortnights. This implicitly assumes that a year has 364 days rather than the actual 365 or 366.

Rounding of Amount of Each Repayment

In practice, repayments are rounded to at least the nearer cent. However the calculator uses the unrounded repayment to derive the amount of interest payable at points along the graph and in total over the full term of the loan. This assumption allows for a smooth graph and equal repayment amounts. Note that the final repayment after the increase in repayment amount, after the additional lump sum repayment amount or the effect of the offset account balance will be a partial repayment as required to reduce the loan balance to zero.

Rounding of Time Saved

The time saved is presented as a number of years and months. It assumes the potential partial last repayment when calculating the savings.

Amount of Interest Saved

This amount can only be approximated from the amount of time saved and based on the original loan details.
