Break cost fee.†  
Payable before expiry of any period when interest rate is fixed on any portion of loan due to loan being repaid, interest becoming variable or default. We calculate the ‘break cost’ using the following formula:  
Let n = the remaining number of months for which the rate is fixed.
Let A = current outstandings.
Let P = monthly scheduled payments.
Let z = annual fixed interest rate payable monthly.
Let y = annual reinvestment rate payable monthly.
Let b = (1+y/12)n Let d = (1+z/12)n.
Then the Break Value is given by: (A/b)*(d-b)+12P/(byz)*(z(b-1)-y(d-1)).

The Defence Home Ownership Assistance Scheme (DHOAS) assists current and former Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and their families to achieve homeownership.

DHOAS is administered by the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) on behalf of the Department of Defence.

DHOAS provides eligible current and former serving members of the Permanent Force and the Reserves with a subsidy on the interest of their home loans.

The subsidy is paid monthly, directly into a DHOAS home loan. The amount of subsidy you receive depends on your subsidy tier level and the balance of your home loan up to your subsidised loan limit.
