Debt is something that a party (borrower or debtor) owes to the other party (lender or creditor), usually money. Debt is a deferred payment or a series of payments owed in the future, which is different from immediate purchase.
Debt can be owed by a sovereign state or country, local government, company, or individual. Commercial debt is usually subject to contractual terms regarding the repayment of principal and interest and the time of repayment.
Loans, bonds, notes, and mortgages are all types of debt. The term can also be used metaphorically to cover ethical obligations and other interactions that are not based on economic value.
Interest is a fee paid to the creditor by the borrower. Interest is calculated on the principal amount and can be the semiannual or annual basis.
Interest rates can be fixed or floating. In the floating rate structure, the interest rates paid by the borrower during each period are linked to benchmarks such as the Emirates Interbank Offered Rate (EIBOR), and for inflation index bonds, they are linked to inflation.
There are many different conventions for calculating interest. According to the debt terms, compound interest may accumulate at specific intervals. Also, there are different daily counting conventions; for example, sometimes each month is considered to have exactly 30 days, so the interest payable for each calendar month is the same. The annual interest rate (APR) is a standardized method for calculating and comparing interest rates each year. The US and UK loan regulations for most individuals require an APR quote rate.
For some loans, the actual amount lent to the debtor is less than the principal to be repaid. This may be due to the receipt of upfront fees or points, or because the structure of the loan is by Islamic teachings. The extra principal due at the end of the period has the same economic impact as the higher interest rate. Borrowers with higher risks usually have to pay higher interest rates to compensate the borrower for the credit of additional default risk. Debt investors can assess default risk before the loan, such as through credit scores and corporate and sovereign ratings.
Three main repayment methods can be used: all principal balances may expire when the loan expires; all principal balances can be amortized over the loan period; or they can be amortized over the loan period, with the remaining principal as “Balloon payment” expires. Amortization structures are common in mortgages and credit cards.
The various types of debtors default on their debts, the consequences of which depend on the terms of the debt and the law of breach of contract in the relevant jurisdiction. If the debt is secured by specific collateral (such as a car or house), the creditor can seek to recover the collateral. In more serious cases, individuals and companies may go bankrupt.
