What are AIR and EIR rates?

AIR – Applied Interest Rate. This is the rate used in calculating the interest payable on your loan. Interest on the Loan shall be calculated based on a flat rate basis method (simple interest) by multiplying the principal Loan amount by the specified annual Applied Interest Rate for the full tenure of the Loan.

Illustration on interest payable for a S$10,000 loan with 2.88% AIR and 5 years tenure
Interest payable: S$10,000 loan x 2.88% pa AIR x 5-year tenure = S$1,440

EIR – Effective Interest Rate. This is the rate that reflects the true cost of borrowing as expressed over a reducing balance basis (similar to home loans) and is useful in comparing different loans to get the best rate.

Assuming that you are taking up a loan at $5,000 at 2.88% p.a. for 2 years (EIR 6.36% p.a. inclusive of 1% processing fee), your monthly instalment will come up to be about $220.33 and there will be no change to it throughout the tenure of the loan*.

Monthly interest and principal are apportioned differently; in the earlier instalments, a larger portion of your monthly instalment goes towards paying off the interest on the loan. The interest portion will be reduced gradually with each instalment (see below for the repayment schedule illustration).
