“30E-360 Day Count Convention (Eurobond Basis)
A day count convention is a fraction with the numerator as 30 or actual number of days to be taken in a month, and the denominator specifying how to assume the number of days in a year. Once such convention is the 30E/360, also known as the Eurobond basis. In the fraction, the letter E represents that it’s the Eurobond basis.
In this day count convention, the denominator is always 360. The numerator is always assumed to be 30, including for February. If the first date falls on the 31st, it is changed to the 30th. If the second date or end date falls on the 31st, it is changed to the 30th.
The number of days in the Calculation Period or Compounding period in respect of which payment is being made devided by 360 is calculated based on a formula as follows:
Day Count Fraction = ([360 x (Y2 – Y1)] + [30 x (M2 – M1)] + (D2 – D1)) /360
“Y1” is the year, expressed as a number, in which the first day of the Calculation Period or Compounding Period falls;
“Y2” is the year, expressed as a number, in which the day immediately following the last day included in the Calculation Period or Compounding Period falls;
“M1” is the calendar month, expressed as a number, in which the first day of the Calculation Period or Compounding Period falls;
“M2” is the calendar month, expressed as a number, in which the day immediately following the last day included in the Calculation Period or Compounding Period falls;
“D1” is the first calendar day, expressed as a number, of the Calculation Period or Compounding Period, unless such number would be 31, in which case D1 will be 30;
“D2” is the calendar day, expressed as a number, immediately following the last day included in the Calculation Period or Compounding Period, unless such number would be 31, in which case D2 will be 30.”
