Accrued interest

• Is the amount of interest which has accumulated since the last coupon interest payment. It is the amount of interest which the holder is entitled but is not due until the payment date. The buyer pays the seller of the bond the accrued interest.

• The accumulated coupon interest earned but not yet paid to the seller of a bond by the buyer (unless the bond is in default).

• Interest due from issue or from the last coupon date to the present on an interest-bearing security. The buyer of the security pays the quoted dollar price plus accrued interest.
