When interest is charged
Interest is charged on purchases when you carry a balance on your Beyond Bank Australia credit card. Interest is charged on cash advances from the date of withdrawal.
Beyond Bank calculates interest daily by applying the daily percentage rate to that part of the unpaid balance on your account. It then debits this interest monthly on the last day of each statement period.
When interest is not charged
With Beyond Bank’s Low Rate Visa card, up to 62 interest-free days apply to credit card purchases if you have paid the balance in full for the previous month’s statement and for the current month’s statement. For more information about interest-free days, check out our article on how they work.
Your credit limit for a Beyond Bank credit card will be determined based on the information you provide in your application, keeping in mind the minimum and maximum credit limit available. Find out more about how credit limits are determined here.
The credit limit is the maximum amount of credit you may obtain on the account. You can request to increase or decrease your credit limit with Beyond Bank, noting that Beyond Bank does not guarantee to approve an increase.
You can close your credit card account at any time by writing a written request and posting it to Beyond Bank, together with the card, which must be returned to Beyond Bank cut in half. Your card balance will need to be repaid in full even after the card is closed. You will continue to receive monthly statements until your card balance is fully repaid.
