Interest paid on revolving credit
The interest on the revolving credit is accrued for the utilised revolving credit amount only.
Interest is not accrued for the purchases made in the current accounting period, i.e. the period lasting one month, between two revolving credit accounting dates (the last and the upcoming one).
Interest on cash withdrawals is accrued from the date such transaction has been recorded in the Bank until the day it is settled.
The amount of accrued interest is reported in the itemised invoice information and is fully included into the minimum revolving credit amount to be repaid monthly.
According to EU Regulation 518/2019, the cardholders have insight into the calculation of the amount to be debited in the card currency in case of the transactions they made at cross-border retailers (including ATMs and cash dispensing machines) from the European Economic Area (EEA) and in foreign currencies from EEA, the authorisation for which is received by the Bank, and can compare it against the exchange rate of the European Central Bank (ECB). The exchange rate value date applicable upon posting will be the transaction date, that is, the date the bank receives the authorisation. Namely, the value date is determined based on the authorisation receipt date, which means that such transactions are recorded on the bank’s system once the authorisation has been received (for other transactions it transpires that they are recorded once the related financial transactions have been received).
