Effective Interest Method
The effective interest method is regarded as one of the preferred methods for amortizing a bond discount. In theory, investors demand a discount on bonds because the market interest rate at the time of issue exceeds the coupon payments on the bond. Thus, by amortizing the discount at the market interest rate, a company’s accounting statements more closely reflect the economic reality of the bond issue and the firm’s true cost of debt.
