Your monthly statement will be posted to you about 3-4working days after your statement date. You can also access to your transaction information via our customer service hotline or go to any of our retail branches in Australia to make the enquiry.
 
Statement Date and Due Date
Your statement date will be the same date in each month (e.g., 27th of each month), the next monthly statement begins on the date after the statement date of your last monthly statement. Each statement period is the period between the statement begin date and the statement end date shown on each statement. If your statement balance is not zero and if there is any debit or credit transactions during the statement cycle, we will issue you the statement after your last statement date. No statement will be issued if no amount has been debited or credited to the account during the statement period and the account balance is nil. The due date shown on your statement is calculated by your statement date plus a fixed number of days and you are required to make at least the stated minimum monthly payment by the due date.
 
Interest and Late Payment Fee
No interest will be charged on a purchase if the closing balance for the statement of account on which the purchase was itemized and the previous statement of account are paid in full within 7 days of the due date shown on the respective statements of account. The maximum interest free period on purchase in 55 days. The actual interest free period you get on a purchase may be less, due to the date on which the purchase is made and the date on which a statement period ends.
 
Cash advances attract interest regardless of whether you have interest free days on your account-interest will be charged from the date you withdraw the cash and will continue to be charged until you pay off your outstanding balance in full.
If you do not pay the full amount that you owe by the due date, there will be no interest free period and you will pay interest on every transaction from the date of the transaction. If you do not pay at least the required minimum payment amount by the due date, there will be a Late Payment Fee. Please refer to our website for credit card fee and charge details.
