A coupon bond is paid on a regular schedule, either one, two, or four times a year. After you take possession of the bond, you can calculate the calendar date your first coupon payment is due by using the COUPNCD function. When you own a coupon bond, you’ll receive a payment every time a coupon comes due. Calculating the date your first comes due will let you manage your cash flow effectively.
