What a repayment break means for you

  1. This repayment break means that you are not required to make any repayments to the Credit Facilities during the repayment break
  2. During the repayment break, interest will continue to accrue on your Credit Facilities and charges will continue to apply where relevant in accordance with the existing terms and conditions which currently apply to your Credit Facilities.
  3. If the current interest rate that applies to your Credit Facilities is a fixed interest rate or a variable interest rate, the application of a repayment break means that the term of the Credit Facilities will be extended, the interest payable on the Credit Facilities will increase and the amount owing on the Credit Facilities will increase.
