Finance charges are a type of compensation that allows the lender to make a profit for giving the funds, or extending credit, to a borrower. Here is a finance charge formula to calculate your charges. The better way to avoid the financial charges is by not carrying a balance.

One can calculate the credit card's new balance by adding the finance charge and old credit balance.

B = F + P

P = Current Balance Owed

r = Annual Percentage Rate (APR)

T = Billing Cycle Length

B = New Balance You Owe
