# How to Use NPER in Google Sheets in 2020?

NPERThe NPER function calculates the number of payment periods for an investment based on constant-amount periodic payments and a constant interest rate.

Sample Usage

NPER(2,500,40000)

NPER(A2,B2,C2,D2,1)

Syntax

NPER(rate, payment_amount, present_value, [future_value, end_or_beginning])

rate – The interest rate.

payment_amount – The amount of each payment made.

present_value – The current value of the annuity.

future_value – [ OPTIONAL ] – The future value remaining after the final payment has been made.

end_or_beginning – [ OPTIONAL – 0 by default ] – Whether payments are due at the end (0) or beginning (1) of each period.

Notes

Ensure that consistent units are used for rate and payment_amount. For example, a car loan for 36 months may be paid monthly, in which case the annual percentage rate should be divided by 12 and the payment_amount is the amount of each monthly payment. On the other hand, a different type of loan of the same length and principal might be paid quarterly, in which case the annual percentage rate should be divided by 4 and the amount paid each period would be adjusted accordingly..
