Equivalent Flat Interest Rate - Flat rate of interest is the simple rate of interest calculated on the entire loan amount without considering the amount already repaid by borrowers. The calculation of a loan on flat rate depends on the principal amount and the rate of interest computed for each pay period individually. Thus, a loan amount of S$2,400 taken at the rate of 5% for 1 year will be paid in 12 months in equal payments of S$200 per month.
Effective Interest Rate (EIR) - The annual EIR is the rate one actually earns or pays on a loan or other financial products as a result of interest compounding over the term of loan. EIR is also known as the annual equivalent rate or effective rate. EIR is subject to compounding if the monthly instalment amount is not paid in full.
