How to maintain your credit history

  • Full obligation to pay your outstanding instalments

  • Ensure that checks are not written without sufficient funds in your account
  •  Fit your credit card limit with your obligations
  •  Updating the data after payment is the responsibility of the financier. The update period varies from one side to another according to their update cycle. Therefore, we recommend that you check your credit record to ensure that the obligations are closed after payment

    Stumbling stays registered at the date of the credit report and the stumbling stops automatically after 5 years from the date of payment of the full debt balance, according to the applicable system and approved by the Saudi Central Bank (SAMA), in order to assist the financiers in assessing the creditworthiness of customers and making the decision of grants
