Loan cash to a friend with interest

Hi, is there an account to register some cash I lend to friend, but he is 
making payments only for the interest not for the principal? He will pay the 
principal someday, but right now he is paying me interest.
Becuase with money I can only track loan with interest but for credits I 
received, not for credits I am giving.

You don't say what version/edition/mode of Money you are using.

Money (except Essentials (MEss)) can create a Loan Account when you are 
lending money--it's the first or second question the account setup genie 
asks. But in this case that's still probably not what you want since it 
assumes a fixed payment stream. You could setup the loan with a future baloon 
payment equal to the original balance and accomodate exactly what you asked 
but it won't be terribly flexible.

Alternatively, you can just create an Asset account or a Cash account and 
transfer the loan made moeny into this account. The downside is that it will 
not automagically calculate accumulation of interest and I suspect this is 
the key thing you are looking for.

Excel is frequently a handy add-in to Money. The calculations involved to 
figure the interest are straightforward. You could also consider setting up a 
somewhat fancier spreadsheet that can get some of the data from Money more or 
less directly via MoneyLink. Unfortunately, you'd have to create the 
transactions that reflect these interest income entries in the account 
register by hand.

Create a Loan account. Money will ask if you are borrowing or
lending. You are lending.

Set up the Balloon amount equal to the principal. Let Money
calculate either the payment or interest rate, according to your
agreement. Set the end of the loan far enough into the future.

Setting up a loan
I want to set up a car loan using Money 2005 Deluxe. When I set up a new account/loan it takes me to a wizard to answer questions. It asks for the loan amount, interest rate, pricipal + interest amount, number of payments, and a balloon amount. Here is the information I about the loan: Amount Borrowed: $10,556.13 Total Paid At End of Loan: $11,450.74 Interest Rate: 4.05% 47 Monthly Payments: $239.00 ($206.20 towards principal, $32.80 towards interest) 1 Balloon Payment: $217.74 The wizard only allows me to enter 4/5 pieces of information about the loan and it calculates the 5th t...

Perhaps (definitely?), I am not too smart, but what should be a simple thing has flummoxed me. I just downloaded the trial version of Money 2003, I set up all my accounts, etc., but I am unable to figure out how to record a cash transaction. I mean simply: if I have $100 in my pocket and I spend $20 on a shirt, or CD or book, etc., how do I make that notation in Money? Do I need to somehow follow the cash trail back up to my checking account? Thanks for the help and sorry if this is a moronic question. --Matt In, Matt wrote: >Perhaps (definitely?), I am not...

Student Loans in Money 2007
Hi, I have four student loans all under one account with Sallie Mae. I've entered them in Money separately because they are at differing interest amounts - I make only one payment to Sallie Mae and they split it between the loans. My problem is that I dont know how to apply the one payment to the four accounts (in order to track). You can't have one Loan Payment target four different Loan Accounts. It's just a limitation. Not a great one. If I were designing it, it wouldn't have this limitation, but there it is. Assuming you want to track these as separate loans (and ...

Hi, I would like to enter a loan into money, but I do am not scheduled to pay the principal until Nov. of 2005. However, the interest will accrue on the loan as of today and I plan on starting to make unscheduled monthly payments to avoid debt in the future. I am trying to enter the loan as a new account but it is saying the loan account values don't work together. Can someone help me out here? Thanks! You need to let Money calculate one of the values. Try letting it calculate the length of the loan. "UA" <> wrote in message news:2bf601c33f6...

Resource Leveling
The resource leveling is a very useful tool I recently discovered in Project 2007. I would like to know if there is a way to apply this tool to cash as a available resource. My team is allocated a fixed amount of money on a monthly basis. The money is accured if it is not used. Is there a way to determine when tasks can be completed based on available cash? If so, how can I do this? If not, are there any Microsoft partners that have developed software to do this effectively?

mortgage loan setup
I have a variable mortgage that is fixed for the first 5 years. The loan started in July 2002. When I go through the Loan Setup Wizard and enter the appropriate information the resulting loan account only goes back to January 2004. How can I enter all the previous payments back to July 2002 and adjust the splits of mortgage payment and fluctuating escrow amounts that have occurred over the course of the loan? Is there anyway to have the loan account reflect the payments already made from my checking account? There's a lot to chew on here. This may take some more Q&A, but...


FHA Loans
Many people hear the term "FHA loan," and incorrectly assume the Federal Housing Administration is a mortgage lender. That is not the case. Established in 1934, the FHA helps lower-income, first-time home buyers get approved for a home loan by providing private lenders with mortgage insurance. This gives the lender the security of knowing the loan will be honored if the buyer defaults on the loan and allows buyers who might not otherwise qualify for a conventional loan get approved. FHA loans are available to individuals with less than perfect credit and often require a smaller down ...

Loan Drawdown
I had a personal loan drawdown that went through my main current account and then I bought a car with this amount. Can anyone advise how I can get Money to "ignore" the transaction as the expense is fairly large and skews my reports OR should I just delete the transactions? Thanks! Cameron Sure sounds like a Transfer followed by an expense (Automobile:Payments?) to me. Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm not sure what you are trying to hide here that isn't a real life transaction. "Cameron Olsen" <> wrote in message news:8d49b4...

Importing Data into a Morgtage Loan
All, Trying out the MS Money 2004 Trial edition, and have potentially found a showstopper (for me at least). I've set up a Morgtage account and now want to import QIF formatted data from my online banking system. I've been able to import all the other accounts (Saving, Cheque, VISA), but WHY cant I import a quicken file for this account ? The account isnt even listed as an available account to import to. Also, the Morgtage/loan account seems to rely very hevily on automatically scheduled payments and the like, however I make manual payments on varying intervals. Is the morgtage ac...

Create open debit balance while applying cash receipt
When customer deduct payment with their debit memo and we do not have credit memo for this item, can we create open debit balance without apply short to other invoice? For example, customer paid net $950($1,000 on invoice #100, but deducted $50 with their debit memo#D-001). Our GP support company told us to apply $950 on invoice #100 and create $50 credit memo to apply to unpaid $50 balance. We would like to apply $1000 on invoice#100 and create open debit for $50 since we may not agree with their deduction. Can GP handle this entry? If do, how can we do so? I think you may be overc...

loan amortization
I have downloaded a loan amortization template which allows for extra payments, but only regular extra payments and the same payment amount each time for the life of the loan. I need a template (or god forbid a formula) that allows me to put in payments as they are made, put in skipped payments, calculates interest daily, and one which I can vary the interest rate. I know I would be pushing my luck, but any chance of adding a function which calculates all extra interest payments (for example if I needed to outline overdue payments seperate to overdue interest charges). I am not famili...

Car Loan as Line of Credit
Hello, In MoneyPlusDeluxe I downloaded car loan transactions from the bank, with the goal being to import the data as a new account. M+D didn't recognize the import data as being for a loan but rather as a line of credit. After some struggle it just seemed easier to accept the forced account type of line of credit. It would be nice to associate the asset (Honda) with the loan, but that option's not available since the "loan" got put in as the other account type. So the questions are: how can I change the account type and, is it worth the hassle? thanks in advance, L A...

EFT Cash Receipts Integration

Money2004 Loan Problem
My car loan had been working perfectly for the 1st 11 payments. Now I've noticed that starting with the 12/1/03 payment the principle/interest split has stopped. The category has been changed to "pay Check". The total payment amount is being debited from my bank account, and the loan account in Money2004. Any ideas how to fix this with a minimum of trauma? The payment source account has changed, but after I made that change the first two payments were fine. I thought of just deleting the loan and starting over. After thinking about I thought this may lead to big problems, ...

Cash Receipts and Check book
Hi, This is regarding Cash Receipts in Sales Module of GP 10. The input screen for cash receipt has a field to enter the cheque book id. However upon posting receipts, the cheque book register does not get updated with the receipt amount. Surely, the GL account associated with the cheque book gets the debit, but not the check book register. Would appreciate advice, comments. Thanks CarlG Carl, The next step after entering a cash receipt is to deposit it in the Bank Rec module. Go to Transactions > Financial > Bank Deposits to do this. The reason for this is that the check...
