For what products is the suspension of instalment repayment available?

Suspension of instalment repayment is available for credits repaid in principal and interest instalments and it includes up to 6 following principal and interest instalments or only principal instalments.

The Bank charges no fees for the suspension of instalment repayment.

Cash Loans (repaid in equal instalments)

As a result of suspension of principal and interest instalments:

  • interest accrued for the suspension period will be paid first, i.e. in the next instalments after deferral
  • the number of outstanding instalments will not change, but the repayment period will be extended by the number of suspension months (from 1 to 6)
  • as a result of deferred payment, the total cost of the loan and the last instalment will increase due to accrued interest also during the deferred period; if the last instalment was higher than 3 times the other instalments, the Bank will propose an increase in all loan instalments

As a result of suspension of principal instalments:

  • during the deferral period only interest instalments will be payable on dates consistent with the current schedule, and the first capital instalment will be payable after the deferral period
  • the total cost of the loan will increase and the repayment period will be extended by the number of months in which capital instalments are suspended

Investment loans and Mortgage Loans for Business Development (repaid in equal and decreasing instalments) or cash loans (repaid in decreasing instalments)

During the suspension of repayment, interest is accrued on the capital of the loan that remained to be repaid before deferring repayment.

As a result of suspension of interest and principal instalments at the end of the deferral period:

  • interest will be added up and added to the amount of debt
  • the principal and interest instalments will be recalculated in the remaining repayment period, taking into account the increased amount of debt to be repaid and the repayment period extended by the selected number of months of the repayment period (from 1 to 6) - therefore subsequent loan instalments will be higher

As a result of suspension of principal instalments:

  • during the deferral period only interest instalments will be payable on dates consistent with the current schedule, and the first capital instalment will be payable after the deferral period
  • the total cost of the loan will increase and the repayment period will be extended by the number of months in which capital instalments are suspended

The difference in instalments before and after suspension will depend on:

  1. remaining repayment period - the longer it is, the smaller will be the difference in instalments (the loan amount will be spread over more instalments), but at the same time the sum of interest instalments paid in the whole period will be greater than for a shorter period (interest paid for longer period of time)
  2. credit amount - the higher it is, the greater will be the difference in instalments paid in PLN
    1. the instalment type:
      • decreasing instalments - the amount of interest decreases during repayment, so the shorter the period remaining, the interest accrued during the deferral will be lower
      • equal instalments - the interest share in the instalment is higher in the initial repayment period and smaller in the final repayment period, so the closer the end of repayment, the smaller the amount of interest will be suspended during the postponement, and then added to the principal amount

BGK guarantees

For small and medium enterprises (SMEs) we offer a program using BGK guarantees under new, more favorable conditions, introduced to reduce the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • increase the guarantee range to 80% of the loan amount, for new guarantees and in the event of renewal or increase of the loan amount,
  • no BGK commission for granting the guarantee,
  • extension of the maximum guarantee period to 39 months for a working capital credit.
