Entering a loan with deferred payments

In Upmetrics, when you enter a standard loan into your forecast, the software will automatically begin applying for payments the month after the receipt of the loan. If you're taking on a loan where you won't make payments right away (also known as "deferred payments"), the Add Other financing entry will allow you to represent that.

Entering a deferred payment loan:

Under the working capital tab of financial forecasting tool, Click on the Funding tab, and then click Add Funding Button:

Enter a name for the loan(borrowed on interest), and select funding type as Other Financing(Borrowed) and then click on Next:

Amount Repaid: Enter the amount you plan to pay back each month or year against the balance:

Note: If you aren't sure of your payment amounts, you may want to consult your lender, or do an online search for a loan payment calculator.
