The amount of interest, expressed in dollars, computed by multiplying the loan balance at the end of the preceding period times the annual interest rate divided by the interest accrual period. On a monthly accrual mortgage, interest due is computed by multiplying the loan balance at the end of the preceding month times the annual interest rate divided by 12. Interest due is the same as the interest payment except when the scheduled mortgage payment is less than the interest due, in which case the difference is added to the balance and constitutes negative amortization.
