Rate is the periodic interest rate.

NPER is the total number of periods (payment period).

PMT: the annuity paid regularly per period.

PV (optional): the (present) cash value of an investment.

In the LibreOffice Calc functions, parameters marked as "optional" can be left out only when no parameter follows. For example, in a function with four parameters, where the last two parameters are marked as "optional", you can leave out parameter 4 or parameters 3 and 4, but you cannot leave out parameter 3 alone.

#### Example

What is the value at the end of an investment if the interest rate is 4% and the payment period is two years, with a periodic payment of 750 currency units. The investment has a present value of 2,500 currency units.

FV(4%;2;750;2500) = -4234.00 currency units. The value at the end of the investment is 4234.00 currency units.

## FVSCHEDULE

Schedule: a series of interest rates, for example, as a range H3:H5 or as a (List) (see example).

This function ignores any text or empty cell within a data range. If you suspect wrong results from this function, look for text in the data ranges. To highlight text contents in a data range, use the value highlighting feature.

#### Example

1000 currency units have been invested in for three years. The interest rates were 3%, 4% and 5% per annum. What is the value after three years?

=FVSCHEDULE(1000; {0.03; 0.04; 0.05}) returns 1124.76.

Settlement: the date of purchase of the security.

Maturity: the date on which the security is sold.

Investment: the purchase price.

Redemption: the selling price.

Basis: is chosen from a list of options and indicates how the year is to be calculated.

NPER is the total number of periods, during which annuity is paid.

PV is the present cash value in sequence of payments.

FV (optional) is the desired value (future value) at the end of the periods.

Type is the due date for the periodic payments.

#### Example

What is the interest rate during the fifth period (year) if the constant interest rate is 5% and the cash value is 15,000 currency units? The periodic payment is seven years.

IPMT(5%;5;7;15000) = -352.97 currency units. The compound interest during the fifth period (year) is 352.97 currency units.

## NPER

For example, in a function with four parameters, where the last two parameters are marked as "optional", you can leave out parameter 4 or parameters 3 and 4, but you cannot leave out parameter 3 alone.

#### Example

How many payment periods does a payment period cover with a periodic interest rate of 6%, a periodic payment of 153.75 currency units and a present cash value of 2.600 currency units.

NPER(6%;153.75;2600) = -12,02. The payment period covers 12.02 periods.

The yield of the security, that has an irregular last interest date, is calculated as follows:

=ODDLYIELD("4/20/1999";"6/15/1999"; "10/15/1998"; 0.0375; 99.875; 100;2;0) returns 0.044873 or 4.4873%.

## RATE

Returns the constant interest rate per period of an annuity.

#### Syntax

RATE(NPer; Pmt; PV [ ; [ FV ] [ ; [ Type ] [ ; Guess ] ] ])

NPER: the total number of periods, during which payments are made (payment period).

PMT: the constant payment (annuity) paid during each period.

PV: the cash value in the sequence of payments.

FV (optional): the future value, which is reached at the end of the periodic payments.

Type (optional): the due date of the periodic payment, either at the beginning or at the end of a period.

GUESS (optional): determines the estimated value of the interest with iterative calculation.

In the LibreOffice Calc functions, parameters marked as "optional" can be left out only when no parameter follows. For example, in a function with four parameters, where the last two parameters are marked as "optional", you can leave out parameter 4 or parameters 3 and 4, but you cannot leave out parameter 3 alone.

#### Example

What is the constant interest rate for a payment period of 3 periods if 10 currency units are paid regularly and the present cash value is 900 currency units.

=RATE(3;-10;900) = -75.63% The interest rate is therefore 75.63%.

## RRI

Calculates the interest rate resulting from the profit (return) of an investment.

#### Syntax

RRI(P;PV;FV)

P: the number of periods needed for calculating the interest rate.

PV: the present (current) value. The cash value is the deposit of cash or the current cash value of an allowance in kind. As a deposit value a positive value must be entered; the deposit must not be 0 or <0.

FV: determines what is desired as the cash value of the deposit.

#### Example

For four periods (years) and a cash value of 7,500 currency units, the interest rate of the return is to be calculated if the future value is 10,000 currency units.

RRI(4;7500;10000) = 7.46 %

The interest rate must be 7.46 % so that 7,500 currency units will become 10,000 currency units.

## VDB

Returns the depreciation of an asset for a specified or partial period using a variable declining balance method.

#### Syntax

VDB(Cost; Salvage; Life; Start; End [; Factor [; NoSwitch]])

Cost: the initial value of an asset.

Salvage is the value of an asset at the end of the depreciation.

Life: the depreciation duration of the asset.

S: the start of the depreciation. A must be entered in the same date unit as the duration.

End: the end of the depreciation.

Factor (optional): the depreciation factor. Factor=2 is double rate depreciation.

NoSwitchis an optional parameter. NoSwitch = 0 (default) means a switch to linear depreciation. In NoSwitch = 1 no switch is made.

In the LibreOffice Calc functions, parameters marked as "optional" can be left out only when no parameter follows. For example, in a function with four parameters, where the last two parameters are marked as "optional", you can leave out parameter 4 or parameters 3 and 4, but you cannot leave out parameter 3 alone.

#### Example

What is the declining-balance double-rate depreciation for a period if the initial cost is 35,000 currency units and the value at the end of the depreciation is 7,500 currency units. The depreciation period is 3 years. The depreciation from the 10th to the 20th period is calculated.

VDB(35000;7500;36;10;20;2) = 8603.80 currency units. The depreciation during the period between the 10th and the 20th period is 8,603.80 currency units.

## XIRR

Calculates the internal rate of return for a list of payments which take place on different dates. The calculation is based on a 365 days per year basis, ignoring leap years.

If the payments take place at regular intervals, use the IRR function.

#### Syntax

XIRR(Values; Dates [; Guess])

Values and dates: a series of payments and the series of associated date values. The first pair of dates defines the start of the payment plan. All other date values must be later, but need not be in any order. The series of values must contain at least one negative and one positive value (receipts and deposits).

Guess (optional): a guess can be input for the internal rate of return. The default is 10%.

This function ignores any text or empty cell within a data range. If you suspect wrong results from this function, look for text in the data ranges. To highlight text contents in a data range, use the value highlighting feature.

#### Example

Calculation of the internal rate of return for the following five payments (dates are in ISO 8601 format):

 A B C 2001-01-01 -10000 Received 2001-02-01 2000 Deposited 2001-03-15 2500 2001-05-12 5000 2001-08-10 1000

=XIRR(B1:B5; A1:A5; 0.1) returns 0.1828 or 18.28%.

## XNPV

Calculates the capital value (net present value) for a list of payments which take place on different dates. The calculation is based on a 365 days per year basis, ignoring leap years.

If the payments take place at regular intervals, use the NPV function.

#### Syntax

XNPV(Rate;Values;Dates)

Rate: the internal rate of return for the payments.

Values and dates: a series of payments and the series of associated date values. The first pair of dates defines the start of the payment plan. All other date values must be later, but need not be in any order. The series of values must contain at least one negative and one positive value (receipts and deposits)

#### Example

Calculation of the net present value for the above-mentioned five payments for a national internal rate of return of 6%.

=XNPV(0.06; B1:B5; A1:A5) returns 323.02.
