Create a Subsidy Loan

A subsidy loan is a debt transaction subscribed by an entity with one counterparty (internal or external, the lender) at a given interest rate. Its details include: the principal amount, the interest rate, the repayment date, etc.

Subsidy loans have one initial drawing, equal to the loan principal, an interest payment schedule and an amortization schedule. The related periods, payment dates, interest calculations and amortization modes can be very simple or sophisticated. Subsidy loans can be associated with a subsidy table, which includes details on how the interest paid can be subsidized.
