It is very easy to use my developed “Effective interest rate method excel template”. Actually, you will get two templates inside the workbook (if you have downloaded the workbook).

  • One template is for bonds that are sold in discount
  • Another template is for bonds that are sold in premium

You will have to provide very few inputs. The inputs are:

  • The face value of the bond
  • Stated Interest Rate / Nominal Interest Rate
  • Maturity Period of the Bonds (in Years)
  • Payment Frequency of the Bond in Every Year
  • Market Rate or Effective Interest Rate of the Bond

This template will output the Issue price of the Bond and show the other calculations.

1) For Discounted Bonds

Take a look at the following image. It shows the amortization table for a bond with the following details:

  • Face Value: $100,000
  • Stated Rate: 6%
  • Maturity Period: 3 Years
  • Payment Frequency: Semi-annual
  • Market Rate/Effective Interest Rate: 8%

The template shows that the Issue Price of the bond will be: $94,757.86

And shows all the calculations for the bond maturity period.

Now I will just change the maturity period from 3 years to 5 years and payments will be done quarterly.

  • Face Value: $100,000
  • Stated Rate: 6%
  • Maturity Period: 5 Years
  • Payment Frequency: Quarterly
  • Market Rate/Effective Interest Rate: 8%

Now check out the image.

2) For Premium Bonds

See how the Excel template works for bonds that are sold in premium with the following information:

  • Face Value: $100,000
  • Stated Rate: 7.000%
  • Maturity Period (Years): 5
  • Payment Frequency: 2
  • Market Rate/Effective Rate: 5.000%

Check out the following image. The template provides issue price as $108752.06 and other calculations for the bond maturity period. And all the calculations are done automatically.
