Tax Reporting With Square Loans
How much interest did I pay toward my Square loan?
With a Square loan, payments are a fixed percentage of your business’s daily card sales and will vary with the amount your business processes daily. This repayment percentage is not an interest rate. In fact, there are no ongoing interest charges for your loan. The total cost of the loan is a fixed fee. The fee is the difference between total owed and loan amount.
The actual loan amounts and payback percentages vary for each loan. Here’s an example:
Amount deposited to your bank account (Square Loans offer): $10,000
Fixed Fee: $1,200
Total amount owed: $11,200
Percentage of your business’s daily card sales that go towards payment: 11%
Following the example above, Square would collect 11% of your business’s daily card payments until you’ve repaid $11,200 in full.
