When creating a new loan product, you can control the extent to which loan schedules can be edited by selecting the desired Repayments Schedule Editing options in the Repayment Scheduling section of the form.

Repayments Schedule Editing options for loan products

If you enable Repayments Schedule Editing for the loan product, you can edit the repayments schedule of the loan accounts created under that product at the time the loan account is created, as well as in the later states of the loan account, Partial Application, Pending Approval, Active, or In Arrears. For more information about the loan account states, see Loan Account's Life Cycle and States.

The following Repayment Schedule Editing options can be activated for loan products:

  • Adjust Payment Dates
  • Adjust Principal Payment Schedule
  • Adjust Interest Payment Schedule
  • Adjust Fee Payment Schedule
  • Adjust Penalty Payment Schedule
  • Configure Payment Holiday

For more infomation about each of these options, see Editing or Customizing Repayment Schedules.

These Repayment Schedule Editing options are available for Fixed Term and Dynamic Term loan products.

Please Note

The Payment Holiday option is not available for compound interest rates.

Repayment schedule editing options for Fixed Term loan products

The option to edit the schedule is available for all Fixed Term products, using any Interest Calculation Method:

  • Flat
  • Declining Balance
  • Declining Balance (Equal Installments)

Fixed term products have the additional flexibility of editing the repayment schedules for each account individually. This can be used to adjust due dates, apply or waive fees and penalties, and to reallocate balances.

Repayment schedule editing options for Dynamic Term loan products

For Dynamic Term loans, the available Repayment Schedule Editing options depend on the Interest Calculation Method. With dynamic loans, interest is always calculated based on the principal in the schedule, so the interest is never directly editable.

Select the Interest Calculation Method


Please Note

For Dynamic Loans, when you select Adjust Number of Installments, Adjust Payment Dates and Adjust Principal Payment Schedule are automatically selected as well.

Change the monthly repayment due date

For Dynamic Term loans with Declining Balance (Equal installments) interest calculation method, you can change the monthly repayment due date. This functionality is available via API 2.0 only. For more information, see our API Reference.

For example:

  • If the next expected installment due date is the 10th and on the 3rd a customer requests a change of the due date to 25th, then the installment amount being moved from the 10th to the 25th increases by the additional 15 days of interest. However, the future installments amount doesn't change.

  • If the next expected installment due date is the 15th and on the 3rd a customer requests a change of the due date to the 5th, then the installment amount being moved from the 15th to the 5th decreases by the additional 10 days of interest. However, the future installments amount doesn't change.
Please be Aware
  • We recommend that you don't change the monthly repayment date if there are multiple monthly repayment dates at a product or account level.
  • We recommend that you don't change the monthly repayment date if the due date has passed.
