  • How will the New Interest Methodology (effective 1 November 2017) affect instalment plans which I am servicing every month, for example, Easy Pay Plan (EPP)?
     

    If the outstanding balances appearing in the credit card statement are settled in full before payment due date, your instalments  (for example, EPP instalment) will not attract finance charges.  You will continue to enjoy a minimum of 20 days interest-free period, provided that the outstanding balances carried forward from the previous month’s statement cycle are settled in full before payment due date. 

    If outstanding balances from the previous month’s statement cycle are carried forward, those balances and any instalments posted on current month’s statement cycle will attract finance charges.  In this case, you will not be able to enjoy the 20-days interest-free period until the subsequent monthly cycle after your outstanding balances are paid in full.
