Holiday Calendar Processing – User may specify whether the payments for a bond are subject to holiday processing or not. If subject to holiday processing, users can also select whether they wish the payment dates to be on the first business day prior to or after the holiday. Users can tell the module whether a holiday calendar contains weekends or not and if weekends should be computed and payment dates and payment amounts adjusted accordingly.

Comprehensive Payment Frequencies & Scheduling Rules – Users may create a virtually limitless set of payment frequencies using the scheduling rule concept. Select generic daily, weekly, and monthly payment frequencies. For example, users can have daily based payment frequencies of 1 day, 2 days, 3 days or N days where N is any integer. Users can also specify the day of the week on which payments occur. For weekly schedules, payments may be scheduled every 1 week, every 2 weeks or every N weeks where N is any integer. For weekly schedules, users can choose which week of the month and day of the week the payments occur. Similar flexibility exists for monthly schedule rules.
