Amortization

Amortization

An amortization schedule, within a loan repayment process, is the process of paying off debt in regular monthly installments, in which a portion of the payment goes toward interest and another portion goes toward the principal. With most amortization schedules, interest is front-loaded during the beginning of the repayment process, so the borrower pays more toward the principal as time goes on.
