## Case I: One Payment, Multiple

Equal Repayments
Calculation of Average Due Date when Amount is lent is one installment and
repayment is to be made in various equal installments
Sum of days/ months/ year
from the date of lending to the date
of repayment of Each installment
Average Due Date = Date of Loan

+
No. of Installment

Note:

## The above formula is applicable only if repayment is made only in

equal installments

ICAI, 2013

## Case II: Multiple Payments,

Repayment in One Installment
Calculation of Average due date when amount is lent in
various installment and repayment is made in one
installment. Computation of Average Due Date in this
case is done in following steps:
1. Take any due date as the Base Date, preferably the
earliest due date should be taken as base date.
2. Calculate the number of days from the base date to
the due date of each transaction.if the due date of
transaction is after the Base date, its number of days
should be treated as plus, but if the due date of
transaction is previous to the base date, number of
days should be marked minus.

ICAI, 2013

Case II - Continued
3. Multiply the number of days from base date by
its respective amount
4. Add up the amounts and products
5. Divide the total of the products by the total of the
amount and get the result approximately up to a
whole number.(e.g. 7.4 days are equal to 7days
and 7.52 days are equal to 8 days.)
6. Add the number of days calculated above to the
Base date and the result will be the average due
date

ICAI, 2013

## Average Due Date = Base Date + Total Product

Total Amount
If there are transactions of purchase and sale or B/R and B/P between two
parties then always take same base date and apply the following formula
Average Due Date = Base Date + Difference in Total Product
Difference in Total Amount

ICAI, 2013

## What is Account Current?

An Account Current is a Running Statement of

## Transactions between Parties

For a Given Period of Time and
Includes Interest Allowed or Charged on various

items

49

ICAI, 2013

Form/ Presentation of
Account Current?
Form of an Account
Copy of ledger account of the other party in the

## books of the party sending the statement

An Account Current has Two Parties:
One who renders (Sends) the Account and
The other to whom the accounts is rendered.
A in account current with B.
It implies that A is the customer and the account is being
given to him by B in the books of B.

50

ICAI, 2013

## Account Current - Exchange

Thus, When two parties have a number of

## transactions between themselves, it is usual to

calculate the interest due.
The parties exchange between themselves
statement showing the various transactions in the
period concerned and interest due.
This statement is in the form of a ledger account
known as Account Current

Interest Computation Methods

52
ICAI, 2013

Account Current
Interest Computation Methods
Commonly Used
Ordinary Method
Product Method

Others
poque Method
Daily Interest Method

53

ICAI, 2013

Ordinary Method
Each item is taken separately and the number of

## days from the due date of transaction to the end

of the period is calculated and interest worked out
at the agreed rate of interest for the required
period.
Note: In case of opening balance, the starting

## day is included in the total number of days

For e.g. if the opening date is 1-07-2012 then days

## of July will be taken as 31.

54

ICAI, 2013

Product Method
Instead of calculating interest separately each

## item is multiplied by the number of days to the

end of period and interest is calculated on the net
product for one day.
In case of opening balance, the number of days,
includes the opening day but no interest is
computed on closing balance
Interest = Balance of Products x Rate of Interest
365 days x 100

55

ICAI, 2013

poque Method
In this days are calculated from date of opening

## date of the statement balance till due date of

each transaction.
In this method there is no question of red in
interest.

56

ICAI, 2013

## Daily Interest Method

In this method days are calculated from the due

## date of one transaction to the due date of the next

transaction.
This method is usually used in case of banks for
calculating interest on savings balance and
current account balance

57

ICAI, 2013

## What is RED INK interest???

In case the due date of a bill falls after the date of

## closing the account, then no interest is allowed for

that. However, interest from the date of closing to
such date is written in Red-Ink in the appropriate
side of the Account current.
The interest is called Red-Ink interest.
This Red Ink interest is treated as negative interest.
In actual practice, however the product of such bill
(value of bill x (Due date- closing date of the account)
is written in ordinary ink in the apposite side on
which date the bill is entered.

Current?
Two Steps Process

Calculation of
Days for
computing interest

63
ICAI, 2013

Calculation of
Interest

## Computation of Days for

Computing Interest
For counting the number of days, the date of the transaction (or due date) is ignored
and the date upto which the account is prepared is included. Therefore if the date of
the transaction is 20th January and the account current is rendered on 31st March,
the number of days will be counted from 21st January upto 31st March.
When transaction are relating to bills of exchange, etc., either due date (after adding
3 grace days) or the last day of period should be considered in the calculation of
number of days

Where the account current is started with the previous balance. Both opening date
and the last date of the period are included in the number of days.

When nothing has been mentioned, the date of transaction should be taken as the
due date.

64

ICAI, 2013

Important Note 1
In Account current, where the rate of interest differs in

## respect of debits and credits, interest should be

computed for debits and credit separately interest of
the net balance of the product should be taken to the
ledger.
The term of the bill after sight commences from the date

## of acceptance of the bill, where as the term of a bill after

date commences from the date of drawing a bill.
Account Current is usually sent by
A banker to its customers
A lender to its borrower
Supplier to its customer
65

ICAI, 2013

Important Note 2
In the case of sale or purchase transaction, if any

## credit period is allowed then only the due date

should be considered as on effective date of
transaction for e.g. If goods are sold (on 2 months
credit) on 1st June and the date of closing the
account is 30th September, the number of days
will be counted as under
