How is interest expense added to my forecast? Follow

This article covers some frequently-asked questions about how interest expense is handled in the LivePlan forecast. 

 

Do I need to enter the interest expense in my forecast?

When you enter a loan into the LivePlan forecast, the interest (and payments) are entered into your forecast automatically. These calculations come from the terms you enter for your loan, including the interest percentage and length:
