Anyone looking to purchase a new car most likely is concerned with how to get a personal loan. In the past people were able to pay cash for car purchases, but due to the recession, now most people are in need of financial help. If you are looking to buy a vehicle, there are some rules of thumb to remember during the process. First of all, anyone looking to search for loans should start with a good budget. Knowing your financial situation is crucial when deciding on what price range you can afford. Start off with a basic assessment of your expenses versus your income. Remember to take into account insurance and car maintenance when coming up with your final numbers. You want to make a wise decision with what you can afford because it will dictate your payments for years to come.
Today’s world is all about credit. Anyone who has tried to get a loan knows how important the credit score can be. Don’t ignore your credit and then get the bad news when you are sitting across from a loan officer. Rather, do your own research. Pull up all three of your credit reports. A good rule of thumb is to request them six months prior to requesting a loan. Once you get your reports check the following items:
• Name, address, and aliases
• Each individual account
• Amounts owed and dates
• Judgments, if any
You want to write to the credit bureaus and challenge any issues that are inaccurate, outdated or misleading.
Decide on new-versus-used purchases
The next decision to make is whether or not you want to buy a new or used car. A new car can be tempting, but remember that there is a reason why this country sells about three times as many used cars as new ones. People understand now more than ever that cars depreciate the minute they leave a lot. In today’s recession people are more discerning than ever and aren’t prone to throwing away unnecessary funds. In today’[s economy it’s best to not be tied to a large personal loan, but rather opt for a loan that fits into your budget. New cars inevitably come with higher price tags. Unless you have the funds to pay more, and lose more in depreciation, a good used car is the most advantageous option.
Finally, car buyers should consider what type of car they realistically need. For example, a car being purchased to drive children around needs to have ample room. On the other hand, a car for a senior citizen should be more focused towards economical choices. Other questions like “Who is the primary driver?” and “How many passengers will normally be driven around?” should also be addressed.
In the end, buying a car is a big decision. Anyone in the market for a car should be wise with decision making. Especially in today’s economy, people need to be as cautious as ever regarding finances and that includes big-ticket item purchases. Most likely a personal loan will be needed to fund the cost, but minimizing it can save thousands in interest payments over the years of the contract.

wise loan reviews
1. When Employee in Full LOP for the Month.
The solution is depends on the Client Requirement, whether he want Carry forward the Deduction amount to the next payroll period or completely waved off the Regular Repayment and Interest too for the LOP and increase the Regular Repayment one month extra.
Carry forward scenario:
1. Need to change Wage type Arrears Characteristics table V_T51P6
No Deduction Scenario:
1. No need to change any Wage type arrears table.
2. Need to change loan type for installment for that particular period is 0.
3. Extend the Regular Repayment one month more or change the installment amount.

what in case of custom specific loans ? what happens to LRP in case if employee goes full month LOP ? Can you let document those two things along with some other issues mentioned in the previious threads that would be great
Thanks for suggestion
Custom specific loans – it depends on the conditions of Interest rates, Interest method calculations, Interest cycle and Payment cycle. these are client specific requirements.
About LRP i will update those ASAP
Can we define in the system, saying like at the end of the loan installment deduct the Cumulated interest.
Note : Every month interest should not come.
Ex: In April, granted amount is 100 rps with 2 installments. My question is for 100 rps Cumulated interest should calculate in the may period. How to achieve this one?
Thanks for sharing a helpful document, I would like to know how to integrate loan payments to payroll, I am able to create loan type and able to create a loan record in Infotype 45, but when I am running the payroll it is not deducting from payroll. I would like to now how we can do this? is there any PCR change please do needful.

Nice document. Appreciating effort to help others!!

I would like to know the remaining amount to be paid I would like to know If iam configuring loan suppose for example Employee loan is for 5 years how do i do that
After maintaining the tabs Basic data, Conditions & Payments click on the button “CREATE REPAYMENT PLAN (F8) ” it will show the no. of months according to the repayment value and interest for every month.
Thanks for sharing good document as you said it will show the repayment value and the interest for every month as below.
After you execute it will show a clear record like below.
Thanks for the document on Loan
Can u please clarify this:
There is a requirement on which the employee status is inactive – on leave, so payroll is not run but the payment is shown in Remuneration statement.
August the Payroll is not run but repayment is shown in Payslip
Please provide your inputs on this.
As Praneeth said in this document you can follow below steps,
1) Change loan type for installment for that particular period is 0.
2) Extend the Regular Repayment one month more or change the installment amount, then it will work.
I was wondering is it possible to use “ V_T7INJ3 ” (maintain eligibility checks) and feature 40LGR for “other countries / International Payroll” as well or not?
Can you also please specify in your document, if we have different loan types, then it should get triggered in different wage type and posting for the same to be done in different GL’s? This will become very helpful document for future reference in that case.
Also, I had come across a requirement, wherein user wanted to post these different type of loan in their respective GL’s in the particular employee vendor account. Is this possible?
As you suggested for Loan payments posting to different G/L. check in the below document
