Banker's Discount
Introduction
As discussed in the chapter of "True Discount", i f
the borrower returns the loan before the due date, he has to
pay slightly less money than the amount due. This less money
is the benefit given to the borrower for earlier repayment and
is known as True Discount. In fact true discount is the "interest calculated on the Present Worth of the Due Amount
for due periodfrom right new ".
But, suppose the debtor (who has taken the loan) is
not able to clear the loan before it is due, but the creditor
(who has given the loan) requires money, he has no right to
ask the debtor to pay back before the bill is due. The only
way the creditor can raise money is to go to a bank and
encash the bill. During encashment of the bill, the bank will
charge a simple interest on the amount mentioned in the bill
for the unexpired time.
Now look at some important terms that are frequently
used in this chapter.
1. Face value:
The amount mentioned in the bill is called face value.
2. Banker's Discount: (B.D.)
It is the simple interest on the amount mentioned in
the bill (or face value) for the period from the date on which
the bill was encashed and the legally due date.
"Banker's Discount is slightly more than True Discount '
3. Banker's Gain (B.G.):
The difference between Banker's Discount (B.D) and
True Discount (TD) is known as Banker's Gain.
Note: 1. Banker's Discount, True Discount and Banker's Gain
are on the unexpired (unutilised) time of the bill and
face value (or actual amount) of the bill.
2. In Arithmetic 'Discount' always means 'True Discount' unless Banker's Discount is expressly meant.
Banker's Discount is generally denoted by BD.
