Previous balance method

A technique for calculating 

Finance

 charges on a 

Credit

 card 

Account

 that takes the outstanding 

Balance

 at the end of the previous billing period and applies the 

Interest

 rate to that total. Charges in the current billing period are not included. 

Interest

 charges are usually higher under this method than under other methods, such as adjusted balance, and 

Average daily balance

 methods.
