FINANCIAL CALENDAR CALCULATOR
This Financial Calendar and Date Calculator allows you to perform calculations with dates and periods using different interest
bases, along with calculation of financial dates according to your specified city setting.
The calculator allows you to perform date calculations like:

Calculating a period's begin and/or end date using period's length
To add days to date use the plus button (+), to subtract use the minus button (-). To evaluate the result, use
the equals button (=).
Suppose you have made an agreement starting from 3rd March 1999 for a period of 60 days and you want to calculate when it's over.
- To add 60 days to to 3rd March 1999 type: 3 / 3 / 1999 + 60 .
- Press equals button (=). The result is: 03 / 03 / 1999 + 60 = 02 / 05 / 1999 .
Therefore the agreement ends on 2nd May 1999.
Interest Basis conventions
You can from several interest
bases: 30 / 360, 30 / 365, ACT / 360, ACT / 365, ACT / ACT (the default one).
In order to add months or years, you first have to choose an interest basis to apply from the Interest Basis drop-down
list and then select the appropriate period's button - Days, Months or Years.
Let's refer to the previous example. In fact the agreement ends after 2 months, using the
interest basis 30/360. You can calculate the end date using the following commands:
- Select interest basis 30/360 .
- Type in the display: 3 / 3/ 1999+2 .
- Press '=' . The display reads: 03 / 03 / 1999 + 2 = 05 / 03 / 1999 .
- The result you have received is for the period in days. Select Months to receive the appropriate date: 03 / 03 / 1999 + 2 = 02 / 05 / 1999.
Calculating period length between two dates
To find periods between two dates, use the minus button (-). To express the periods in months or years,
select the appropriate period checkbox.
- Enter the date: 03 / 05 / 1999 .
- Press the minus button and enter 3rd March 1999. The display now reads: 03 / 05 / 1999 - 3 / 3 / 1999.
- Press equals button (=). The result is: 03 / 05 / 1999 - 03 / 03 / 1999 = 61 .
- To express the result in terms of years, select Years from period checkbox. The result is: 03 / 05 / 1999 - 03 / 03 / 1999 = 0.16712.
The financial dates are the working days in a specified city. To calculate a financial date means to find the nearest working day.
Choosing date conventions
- Date Roll conventions
- Preceding (default) - the date is rolled backwards ;
- Following - the date is rolled forwards;
- ModFollowing - the date is rolled forwards, if end of month is reached, the date is rolled backwards.
- City conventions

cities from which you can choose:
Calculating financial dates

Here is a list of the financial date function buttons:

||Calculate the last financial date in the month
If your agreements ends in 2nd
May 1999, you should be aware of the fact, that it is Sunday,
and the financial date for it is 30th April 1999, using
the Preceding Date Roll setting. But in Amsterdam 30th
April is Queen Day and is a holiday, although it is Friday, so
the financial date for 2nd May 1999 is 29th
- Calculate the end date: 03 / 03 / 1999 + 2 = 02 / 05 / 1999.
- Select City Amsterdam (AMS) .
- Press the FinDate button. The financial date
is 29 / 04 / 1999.
