Fortnightly Repayment Calculator


Use this fortnightly repayment calculator to quickly see the savings paying fortnightly, instead of monthly, can make.

For fortnightly and weekly repayments, there are several methods to calculate repayments. Among them, these two are the most popular:

1. Actuarial Method which calculates the minimum repayments such that the loan can be paid off at the end of the term, not sooner and not later. It is true for fortnightly and weekly repayments.

  1. 2. Half Monthly Repayment Method which calculates fortnightly and weekly repayments simply by dividing the monthly repayment by two and four respectively.

In method two, the fortnightly or weekly repayment will be higher than the actuarial method, which results in the borrower making extra repayments over the same 12-month period.

In effect, the borrowers will repay the loan sooner and also save some interest.
