**Compound interest calculator with contributions** is a tool for calculating future return on investment if you invest on a regular basis.

**the second month**. - Time : Enter the investment period. Compound interest is repeated as many times as you enter it.
- Annual Interest Rate : Enter the expected compound interest rate.
- Compound Frequency : Enter the compound frequency.
- Calculate : Outputs the result calculated with compound interest.

## Compound Frequency

The compound frequency determines when previously accrued interest is reflected in the next calculation.

- Annually : In the annual frequency, interest for one year is used to calculate the next year.
- Monthly : In the monthly frequency, interest for one month is used to calculate the next month.
- Daily (360/yr) : In the daily frequency, interest accrued each day is used for calculation of the next day. This calculator assumes 30 days in a month and 360 days in a year. Therefore, there may be slight differences from the actual results.
