*A single-payment loan is a loan in which the principal and all accrued finance charges are repaid using a single payment at the end of the loan term.*

This calculator will compute the total interest paid over the life of a conventional loan, given the loan amount (i.e., the present value of the loan), the periodic interest rate, and the number of payment periods.
