There are different amortisation models for mortgages. Find out here how amortisation works, which models are available, and what the right solution is for you.
Amortisation of a mortgage – an overview
If you finance your home, the mortgage you have taken out is usually divided into a first mortgage and a second mortgage. Your second mortgage has to be amortised, i.e. repaid. The second mortgage usually has a term of 15 years. There are two types of amortisation:
You repay the mortgage debt in regular instalments. This reduces both the mortgage and the interest burden. The disadvantage: the amount that you can deduct from your tax return will also be smaller.
You transfer the amortisation amount to a pillar 3a retirement savings account or invest it in a pillar 3a policy. The capital remains tied up until retirement age. You can then withdraw the money and repay the entire second mortgage in one go.
- The amount that you can deduct from your tax return for mortgage interest always remains the same.
- The amount you pay into pillar 3a can also be deducted from your taxable income.
- You benefit from the returns and preferential interest rates for pillar 3a saving.
