Back to Finance Glossary | Previous PageAccrued interest is interest that has accumulated since the most recent payment of a fixed-income security. When a fixed-income security is purchased, the buyer pays the seller the bond's price plus "accrued interest" at the time of sale. Accrued interest is calculated by multiplying the interest rate by the fraction of the period that has elapsed since the last payment.
