* The term deposit calculator calculates the accumulated balance and interest of a term deposit on the basis of the data entered; 1. initial deposit amount; 2. interest rate (per annum); 3. investment term (months).

The Present Value provided by this calculator is displayed as the amount labelled ‘Total at end of term’.

Calculator Assumptions

Length of Month
Months are of equal length. However, given some months are longer than others interest paid will vary depending upon the month.

Rounding of Amounts of Total Accumulation and Interest Earned
Principal and interest earned are rounded to the nearest cent. In practice, the accuracy many institutions calculate interest slightly differently, hence results may vary slightly.

Interest Rate
The interest rate input in the saving detail section of the calculator is a nominal interest rate per annum. The interest applied over each deposit period has been calculated as the nominal interest rate divided by the number of deposit periods.

Timing of Interest Conversion
The calculator assumes that interest is credited to the savings account at the same frequency as the deposits are made. In practice, there may be differences between the timing of the deposits and the timing of the interest being credited to the account.
