DEFINITION
Amortized Basis

A method of valuing bonds by means of which the premium or the discount involved in the purchase of a bond is extinguished by periodically charging off a portion of the premium or crediting a portion of the discount so as to bring the value to par at maturity. Amortized values are computed by means of special formulae devised for the purpose.
