When you take out a loan, you or your accountant might need to know how much interest you paid for a given period. If you borrow $250,000 for some facility upgrades, you might be able to write off some or all of the interest paid for a given month, quarter, or year. You can discover how much interest you paid on a loan by using the ISPMT function.
