Hi DMS Law office in Vietnam! Can you advise me about regulations on interest rates between a lender and a borrower, interest rate on overdue principal ?
The rate of interest for a loan shall be agreed by the parties.
The rate of interest for a loan agreed by the parties shall not exceed 20% per year, unless otherwise prescribed by law.
According to actual conditions and at the proposal of the Government, the Standing Committee of National Assembly shall adjust the above interest and report to the National Assembly at the latest session.
If the agreed interest exceeds the maximum interest prescribed in this Clause, the excessive interest shall become invalid.
Where parties agree that interest will be payable but fail to specify the interest rate and have a dispute to the interest rate, the interest rate of the loan shall equal 50% of the maximum interest prescribed in Clause 1 of this Article at the repayment time.
Interest rate on the overdue principal
Interest on the principal as agreed in the contract in proportion to the overdue loan term, in addition the borrower shall have to pay interest at the rate prescribed in Clause 2 Article 468 in case of late payment;
