Understanding your business loan calculator results

Monthly payment: This is the fixed amount you’ll repay each month. It includes principal, interest and fees.
Total payments: This is the sum of all the payments to make on the loan, which includes the amount you borrowed, plus interest and fees.
Total interest paid: The total interest paid represents what the lender is charging you for the loan. If you repay the loan early, you may be able to save on interest.
APR: This number represents the true annual cost of the loan and makes it easier to do an apples-to-apples comparison between products. Some lenders do not provide APR and instead give a general interest rate that does not include any fees. APR for business loans depends on your credit score and your business’s finances, including annual revenue and time in business.
