All Malaysian Banks Have Declared Non-Compounding Interest For Moratorium Loan & is Automatic.

Updated: Apr 4



Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) has put a six-month moratorium on the repayment of personal loans and financing. This means that all banks will offer an automatic postponement of loan payments of six months.


Here’s what you have to know about this initiative:

  • Eligibility. Only applies to ringgit-denominated loans that are not in default exceeding 90 days as at April 1. Does not apply to credit card debt.

  • Automatic. You do not have to apply for this, as it is automatic. If you do not want to defer your loan payment, contact your bank.

  • Period. Until September 30, 2020.

  • Interest payments. No late payment interest or charges, but your interest charges will accrue.

  • Credit score. This will not be classified under CCRIS as a loan deferment.


It’s important to note that your interest will still accrue during the moratorium period, for all banks. In addition, interest charges for some loans may be compounded.


But compounding interest/profit does not apply to Islamic financing facilities, as per Shariah law. Many banks have also stepped forward to say that the interest on their loans during the moratorium will not compound:


Bank Interest/profit


Affin Bank = Non-compounding


Alliance Bank = Non-compounding


AmBank = Non-compounding


CIMB Bank = Non-compounding for ASB financing, home financing, auto financing and personal financing and loans/financings and industrial hire purchaseCiti MalaysiaNon-compounding for mortgage and personal loans


Hong Leong Bank = Non-compounding

Public Bank = Non-compounding for individual and business customers
