Hi all!
Osborne Books, Cash Management, Workbook, Practice assessment 2, task 2.4
The question is to find the best possible option of funding for the business and calculate:
1. Loan interest
2. Arrangement fee
3. Overdraft interest
4 and Total
There are three financing option given to choose from.
First two I understand.
The third one is this one:
Each of three partners will take out the personal secured loan of 32000 repayable over five years at an interest rate of 2.5%. These monies will then be loaned to the partnership as increased capital. Interest of 4% per annum is payable by the partnership to the partners.
All I need here actually is to calculate the loan interest for the first year of financing.
The correct answer by the way is: £ 3840.
The only way I can come up with this is: 32000 x 2.5% x 5years  4% = 3840, but it does not quite make sense to me.
Anyone can help please.
Thanks!!!

Hi there !
The answer £3840 is coming from
32000 * 3 (three partners)= 96000
96000 * 4% = 3840
Which is the arrangement fee.
just to double check are you sure your not calculating the arrangement fee?0 
Thanks.
Yes I am sure. It is for loan interest.
But where 2.5% gone?0 
Ok, so as I understand the 2.5% is partners personal headache and it does not add any cost to the business.
Business will have to pay 4% on new capital invested by partners. So the cost of the loan to the business in the amount of £96000 will be 4% which is £3840.
Am I correct???0 
Hi taraskyn,
I first calculate the total amount lent to the business 3 x 32,000 = £96,000
The interest rate is 4% per annum so £96,000 x 4% = £3840  this is the cost for the partnership of the loan interest.
Is this clearer?

Edit: I was a bit slow!0 
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All clear now!0
