Let us consider the example of a customer buying a mobile phone worth ₹15,000 on No Cost EMI on a 3-month EMI period. The bank charges 15% interest per annum. Additionally, the bank may charge the customer GST on the interest.

Cost of mobile phone: ₹15,000
Tenure of No Cost EMI: 3 months
Interest Rate: 15% per annum
Interest Amount: ₹367.33
No Cost EMI Amount: ₹5,000
Actual loan amount charged on customer's card (Cost of Mobile Phone minus Interest Amount): ₹14,632.67

The No Cost EMI calculation is given below:

Customers Pay GST on Interest

In a no cost EMI, you provide a discount on the principal. The monthly installment paid by the customer consists of this principal and the interest. As the issuing banks still charge the interest, the customer will be charged the GST on interest by the bank.

EMI is generally calculated using the below formula:

EMI = [P x R x (1+R)^N]/[(1+R)^N-1]

P = Principal
R = Interest rate per month
N = Number of installations of the EMI

For No Cost EMI, the EMI value is calculated as A/N, where A is the price of the product.

From the above example, EMI is ₹15000/3 = ₹5000

We will replace this value in the above equation to calculate the value of P.

5000 = [P x (0.15/12) x (1+(0.15/12))^3]/[(1+(0.15/12))^3-1]

P comes out to be ₹14632.67, and the discount borne by you is ₹367.33. This is equal to 2.45% of the original amount.
