You have to create your loan account first as a debt account with a starting balance equal to the loan amount as a negative value *or* create the account with a null balance and a starting transaction (using the startup account type). Then you just have to enter monthly payments this way:
In this example 'My Loan' have a starting balance of -$500.00
My checking account
My checking account
'My loan' balance becomes -500 + 40.70 = -$459.30
'Financial expenses' is an expense account we have created to compute interests.
and so on until last month when 'My loan' will have again a balance of $0.00, 'My Checking Account' will have been debited for $500.00 and 'Financial expenses' account will have a balance of $13.96. Note that the calculation has been made with our Loan Calculator (Loan Calc)
