How much will be my surcharge if my account is unpaid or paid after the due date?

Accounts unpaid or paid after the due date will bear a surcharge of 2%, which will be added to your next bill.

What happens to my bill if I pay after the due date?

Accounts paid after the due date may still be included in your next bill because it was already printed before you made your payments, but please disregard them. You may refer the updated balance in the lower leftmost of your official receipt.

Does the acceptance of a partial payment guarantee a non-disconnection of my line?
