Interest

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

58.—(1) Where a debt proved in the postal administration bears interest, that interest is provable as part of the debt except in so far as it is payable in respect of any period after the relevant date.

(2) In the following circumstances the creditor’s claim may include interest on the debt for periods before the relevant date, although not previously reserved or agreed.

(3) If the debt is due by virtue of a written instrument, and payable at a certain time, interest may be claimed for the period from that time to the relevant date.

(4) If the debt is due otherwise, interest may only be claimed if, before the relevant date, a demand for payment of the debt was made in writing by or on behalf of the creditor, and notice given that interest would be payable from the date of the demand to the date of payment.

(5) Interest under paragraph (4) of this Rule may only be claimed for the period from the date of the demand to the relevant date and for all the purposes of the 1986 Act and the Rules shall be chargeable at a rate not exceeding that mentioned in paragraph (6) of this Rule.

(6) The rate of interest to be claimed under paragraphs (3) and (4) of this Rule is the rate specified in section 17 of the Judgments Act 1838 on the relevant date.

(7) Any surplus remaining after payment of the debts proved shall, before being applied for any purpose, be applied in paying interest on those debts in respect of the periods during which they have been outstanding since the relevant date.

(8) All interest payable under paragraph (7) of this Rule ranks equally whether or not the debts on which it is payable rank equally.

(9) The rate of interest payable under paragraph (7) of this Rule is whichever is the greater of the rate specified under paragraph (6) of this Rule and the rate applicable to the debt apart from the postal administration.
