## What is Toolerz Step-up SIP Calculator?

Toolerz **Step Up SIP Calculator** is a free online tool that can help you calculate the future returns of your SIP Investments if you increase your SIP Investment by a certain percentage on a regular periods.

A **Systematic Investment Plan (SIP)** is a method of investing in mutual funds where we invest a fixed amount regularly, typically every month.

The idea behind SIP is to enable disciplined and regular investing, allowing investors to take advantage of rupee cost averaging and benefit from the power of compounding over the long term.

A "**Step-Up SIP Investment**" refers to a SIP in which the investor increases the amount of their investment at regular intervals.

Instead of investing a fixed amount every month throughout the investment period, in a step-up SIP, the investor starts with a lower amount and gradually increases the investment amount at predefined intervals.

For example, you might start with a SIP Investment of Rs. 5,000/- per month and then decide to increase it by Rs. 1,000 every six months.

### How to Calculate Step-Up SIP Returns in Excel Sheet

Creating a **step-up SIP calculator in Excel** involves setting up a table and using Excel formulas. Below is a simple example to get you started.

Let us assume the fixed compounding frequency (monthly), and you can modify it based on your specific requirements.

Let's assume you have the following information:

Initial Investment (P): Rs. 1,000/-

Monthly Contribution Increase Rate: 5%

Number of Months: 12

Annual Interest Rate: 8%

Here's how you can set up the Excel sheet:

Column A: Month Number

Column B: Monthly Contribution

Column C: Total Investment at the end of each month

Column D: Interest Earned at the end of each month

Column E: Total Value at the end of each month

Now, in cell A2, put the initial month number (let's say 1).

In cell B2, put the initial investment amount (e.g., Rs. 1,000).

In cell C2, put the formula for the total investment at the end of each month:

Copy the following codes into an Excel sheet

Code: **C2 + B2**

In cell D2, put the formula for the interest earned at the end of each month:

Code: **(C2 + B2) * (8%/12)**

In cell E2, put the formula for the total value at the end of each month:

Code: **C2 + B2 + D2**

Now, copy these formulas down for the number of months you want to calculate (e.g., copy and paste from A2 to E13 for 12 months).

In cell B3, put the formula for the monthly contribution with a 5% increase:

Code: **B2 * (1 + 5%)**

Again, copy this formula down for the number of months.

Now, you can see how the investment grows with the increasing monthly contributions. Adjust the values and formulas according to your specific scenario.
