Exact Interest

Interest that is calculated and therefore repaid on the basis of a 365-day year (that is, an actual year), as opposed to a 360-day year, which is used in some calculations. While this is only a small difference in calculation, the difference in amount can be large, especially with large debt transactions. See also: Ordinary interest.
