The concessionality level is a measure of the "softness" of a credit reflecting the benefit to the borrower compared to a loan at market rate (see grant element). Technically, it is calculated as the difference between the nominal value of a Tied Aid Credit and the present value of the debt service as of the date of disbursement, calculated at a discount rate applicable to the currency of the transaction and expressed as a percentage of the nominal value.
