05 October 2022 Debt Service Coverage is usually calculated using EBITDA as a proxy for cash flow. Adjustments will vary depending on the context of the analysis, but the most common DSCR formula is:

DSCR Formula =( EBITDA-(cash taxes)/(principal+interest )

Where:

EBITDA = Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation, and Amortization
Principal = The total amount of loan principal due within the measurement period (often expressed as the current portion of long-term debt or CPLTD).
Interest = The total aggregate amount of interest due within the measurement period, calculated on both the current portions and the non-current portions of long-term debt.
Cash Taxes = The proportion of total income tax that’s due in cash during the current measurement period.
