APY stands for annual percentage yield and also known as an effective annual rate. The annual percentage yield is the real rate of the return earned on investments by the effect of the compounding interest. Compound interest is calculated periodically and the earned interest is added to the balance.

APY is different from APR. APR is the annual percentage rate that is calculated without considering the compound interest. And on other hand, APY does take the effects of compounding within a year in the calculation.

The Formula for calculating Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is as follows:

APY = (1 + R / CF)CF - 1


  • R - Interest rate of return
  • CF - Compounding Frequency and number of times the interest is compounded per year (e.g. 12 for monthly and 4 for monthly)

And calculate the future value and interest by compound interest formula:

FB = ID * (1 + R/CF) (T*CF)
