Debt Burden Ratio Calculator
Do you have too much debt compared to your income?
Your debt-to-income ratio is an extremely important number. Alongside your credit score, it will go a long way to determining if you can borrow money or obtain credit. Put simply, it's all of your essential outgoings compared to your overall income.
A lender or credit provider will look at this ratio when making a decision on lending money or providing credit. A low percentage ratio is more attractive for lenders, whereas anything over 50% will mean that you are unable to obtain any further credit. Typically you'll want to keep it around the 30% mark.
Use our handy calculator to add up all of your monthly outgoings including your mortgage/rent and any other loans, credit card payments as well as any other recurring outgoings and we'll calculate your debt ratio against your monthly income!
Monthly Income After Taxes (AED / Month): This is your monthly household income after taxes. This monthly figure would include income from all sources, including the income from a spouse or partner.
Other Monthly Income (AED / Month): If you have any other reliable source of monthly income, then list it here. Keep in mind this value needs to be stated on an after-tax basis.
Monthly Debt Payments:: In this next section of the calculator, you are going to enter all of your monthly debt payments, including installment loans and personal loans.
Mortgage Payment (AED / Month): This is the monthly mortgage payment you make each month, including the payment of any property taxes.
Monthly Rent (AED / Month): If you don't own a home and you are paying rent each month, then enter that amount here.
Car Loans / Lease Payments (AED / Month): This is the total of all the car loans or car lease payments you make each month.
Personal Loans (AED / Month): If you have any personal loans, then enter your monthly payment on those loans here.
Credit Cards Minimums (AED / Month): If you are making minimum payments on a credit card, then enter that amount here because this type of arrangement is similar to a loan. If you're paying off the balance on your credit card each month, then you would not enter that amount here.
