Type of Loan 

Amortized Paid Date is a repayment plan that consists of both principal and interest. Payments are usually divided into equal amounts for the length of the loan. Amortized Due Date is amortized and interest is collected through the due date. Interest Only Loan is a payment plan that covers only the interest amount of the principal. With Interest Only loans, the monthly payments do not reduce the principal balance. The principal is repaid at the end of the loan term. Principal and Interest at Maturity is a repayment plan that is a single payment due at the end of the loan period. The payment at the end of the loan is a combination of both principal and interest. This type of loan is common for agricultural loans or loans where the cash is not available to pay off a loan until the end of the term. Fixed Payment Paid Date – A fixed payment loan allows the user to specify a payment amount. If the payment is less than the interest due or less than the fully amortized payment; the loan will have both a remaining interest and principal balance at maturity. Fixed Payment Due Date uses your existing contract payment and interest is collected through the due date. Final Payment – A final payment loan type allows the user to set the final principal amount. This loan type will have a remaining principal balance; and may have unpaid interest at maturity. Addon Principal & Interest – Addon Principal & Interest lets the user establish a principal & interest payment that will be the same every month. It may be fully amortized or partially amortized as determined by the user. Addon Interest – Add on Interest allows the user to set the periodic interest payment. The interest payment is the same regardless of the number of days in the month. Addon Interest loan types will have a remaining principal balance at the loans maturity. Fixed Principal Due Date – This loan types has a fixed principal payment; then adds accrued interest through the paid date or interest through next due date.

An amortized loan has regular, equal payment through out the term of the loan.
An interest only loan has regular payment of interest only, with the principle and
due with the last payment.
The principal and all interest are due at the end of the loan (Maturity Date).
Partially amortized loans have fixed payments during the term of the loan, with
any remaining principle due at the end of the loan.

Calculate Interest From 

The date that interest will start being charged. Generally this is the date that the loan funds are received.
If you have an existing loan that you are putting onto the Zimple system, this would be the date interest was paid through (i.e. the end of the prior month).

Payment Start Date 

The date of the first payment.
If the payment start date is different than the default, additional interest will be accrued prior to the first payment.

Extend Loan Terms?


If selected, this feature allows the term of the loan to be extended when a payment is deferred. If a borrower needs to skip a payment, rather than increasing the amount of the original final payment, it will add another scheduled payment and push out the final payment date by one period.
