Article summary

Whenever accrued interest is applied on an account, it means that the interest has been recognized as income in the case of loan accounts or overdrafts and as an expense for interest paid to client deposit accounts.

When interest is posted, an Interest Applied transaction is created to update the account balances.

Automatic interest posting on accounts is controlled by the Loan or Deposit Product settings, please see the relevant settings for Loan and Deposit products.

Interest can also be applied manually, as described below.

To manually apply interest:

  1. Open the account.
  2. On the right hand side of the screen, go to More > Apply Accrued Interest.
