Title 14A. Consumer Credit Code
§14A-2-310. Revolving charge accounts.

(1) Before opening any account under a revolving charge account plan, the creditor shall give to the consumer the following information:

(a)conditions under which a credit service charge may be made, including the time period, if any, within which any credit extended may be repaid without incurring a credit service charge, except that the creditor may, at his election and without disclosure, impose no such credit service charge if payment is received after the termination of such period. If no time period is provided, the creditor shall disclose that fact;

(b)method of determining the balance upon which a credit service charge will be computed;

(c)method of determining the amount of the credit service charge, including any minimum or fixed amount imposed as a finance charge, and where one or more periodic rates may be used to compute the credit service charge, each such rate and the range of balances to which it is applicable;

(d)corresponding nominal annual percentage rate pursuant to subsection (3) of Section 2-304 of this title; if more than one corresponding nominal annual percentage rate may be used, each corresponding nominal annual percentage rate shall be stated;

(e)identification of additional charges which may be made and the method by which they will be determined;

(f)in cases where the creditor may retain or acquire a security interest in property to secure the balances resulting from credit extensions made pursuant to the revolving charge account, a statement that a security interest has been or will be taken in the property purchased as part of the credit transaction, or property not purchased as part of the credit transaction identified by item or type;

(g)a statement in a form prescribed by and describing the protection provided by Sections 161 and 170 of the Federal Consumer Credit Protection Act to an obligor and the responsibilities of a creditor under Sections 162 and 170 of the Federal Consumer Credit Protection Act; and

(h)in the case of any account under a revolving charge account plan which provides for any extension of credit which is secured by the consumer's principal dwelling, any information which:

(i)is required to be disclosed under subsection (1) of Section 2-310.2 of this title; and

(ii)the Administrator determines is not described in any other paragraph of this subsection.

(2) If there is an outstanding balance at the end of the billing cycle or if a credit service charge is made with respect to the billing cycle, the creditor shall give to the consumer the following information within a reasonable time after the end of the billing cycle:

(a)outstanding balance at the beginning of the billing cycle;

(b)amount and date of each extension of credit during the billing cycle and a brief identification of each extension of credit on or accompanying the statement in a form prescribed by regulations of the Administrator to enable the consumer to identify the transaction, or relate it to copies of sale vouchers or similar instruments previously furnished; except that a creditor's failure to disclose information in accordance with this paragraph shall not be deemed a failure to comply with this part if the creditor maintains procedures reasonably adapted to procure and provide such information and the creditor responds to and treats any inquiry for clarification or documentation as a billing error and an erroneously billed amount in accordance with Section 161 of the Federal Consumer Credit Protection Act. In lieu of complying with the requirements of the previous sentence, and to the extent permitted by rules of the Administrator, in the case of any transaction in which the creditor and the person responsible for providing disclosure are the same as defined by the Administrator and the person's revolving charge account plan has fewer than fifteen thousand (15,000) accounts, the creditor may elect to provide only the amount and date of each extension of credit during the billing cycle and the seller's name and location where the transaction took place if a brief identification of the transaction has been previously furnished and the creditor responds to and treats any inquiry for clarification or documentation as a billing error and an erroneously billed amount in accordance with Section 161 of the Federal Consumer Credit Protection Act.

(c)amount credited to the account during the billing cycle;

(d)amount of credit service charge debited during the billing cycle, with an itemization or explanation to show the total amount of credit service charge, if any, due to the application of one or more periodic percentages and the amount, if any, imposed as a minimum or fixed charge;

(e)the periodic percentage used to calculate the credit service charge; if more than one periodic percentage is used, each percentage and the amount of the balance to which each applies shall be disclosed;

(f)the balance on which the credit service charge is computed and a statement of how the balance is determined; if the balance is determined without first deducting all amounts credited during the period, that fact and the amounts credited shall also be stated;

(g)if the credit service charge for the billing cycle exceeds fifty cents ($0.50) for a monthly or longer billing cycle, or the pro rata part of the fifty cents ($0.50) for a billing cycle shorter than monthly, the credit service charge expressed as an annual percentage rate pursuant to paragraph (b) of subsection (2) of Section 2-304 of this title; if more than one periodic percentage is used to calculate the credit service charge, the creditor, in lieu of stating a single annual percentage rate, may state more than one annual percentage rate and the amount of the balance to which each annual percentage rate applies;

(h)if the credit service charge for the billing cycle does not exceed fifty cents ($0.50) for a monthly or longer billing cycle, or the pro rata part of fifty cents ($0.50) for a billing cycle shorter than monthly, the corresponding nominal annual percentage rate pursuant to subsection (3) of Section 2-304 of this title;

(i)outstanding balance at the end of the billing cycle;

(j)date by which or period, if any, within which payment must be made to avoid additional credit service charges, except that the creditor may, at his election and without disclosure, impose no such additional credit service charge if payment is received after such date or the termination of such period; and

(k)address to be used by the creditor for the purpose of receiving billing inquiries.
