These charges are applied to any balance which is carried over beyond the grace period. Use our finance charge calculator to find the finance charges based on current credit balance owed, annual percentage rate and billing cycle length.

#### Formula:

Finance Charge(F) = P × ( r / 100 ) × T B = F + P Where, P = Current Balance Owed r = Annual Percentage Rate (APR) T = Billing Cycle Length B = New Balance You Owe

### Example:

Ram has a credit card debt of \$6,500 with billing cycle duration of 50 days and an APR percent of 15.50%. Find his finance charge and the new balance he owes?

#### Solution:

Finance Charge = 6500 × ( 15.50 / 100 ) × 50
= \$138.01
B = F + P
= 138.01 + 6500
= \$6638.01
Thus Ram's Finance charge is \$138.01 and the new balance he owns is \$6638.01
