What is CCRIS

CCRIS is a centralized system under Bank Negara which compiles data on your outstanding loan amount and payment history for the past 12 months, at any given time. Any records older than 12 months are "purged".

If you are late in payment (lets say 6 months outstanding in Feb 2015) but you have paid off the outstanding in March 2015, the records will still show February = 6 months, March = 0 months, April = 0 months. As CCRIS is a report for 12 month period, the 6 months in arrears records will only 'disappear' in February 2016 (12 months later). You just cannot erase or request to clear it before that, as it is a rolling report.

If it shows, for example, 2 2 2 2 – -, meaning your loan has been due for 2 payments for 4 months.

Everyone has their CCRIS report which can be retrieved by financial bodies and by the individual himself, but not by other people. In other words, your eligibility for loan has nothing to do with how well you know your banker (although that *might help?).

The Credit Bureau  is legally empowered to collect credit information about you from these financial institutions.

However, the Credit Bureau simply reports and does not "judge" your creditworthiness. Also in all fairness, information on rejected credit applications is not reflected  in credit reports so that one bank will not be biased by the prior decision of another bank. Your CCRIS information could in fact be treated differently and subjectively by each financial institution.

Currently, there is an arbitrary limit for the public to print their own report – it can only be done once every three months.

How to conduct your CCRIS check

According to the BNM’s website, there are only 5 locations in Peninsular Malaysia (Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuala Trengganu, KL and Shah Alam) and two locations in East Malaysia (Kuching & Kota Kinabalu) for the public to print their CCRIS reports. If an individual is located in Melaka or Ipoh, they would need to go to BNM’s HQ to print their reports.

Steps on how to conduct your CCRIS check F.O.C.

  1. Go to CCRIS kiosk at Bank Negara Malaysia
  2. Use your MyKad  for fingerprint verification
  3. Print the report.

How is CCRIS report being updated?

After discussing on how to do your own CCRIS check, we now want to know how CCRIS report is being updated.

In fact, CCRIS information is updated on the 15th of every month. So if you have paid down your credit lines anytime from 1-31 Jan, time your loan application submissions on the 16th of Feb.

In practical, issue crops up impacting consumer when the banks are delayed in updating their customers’ credit facility records to the CCRIS in a timely manner, despite the fact that the banks are supposed to do so on the 15th of each month.

Banks do have problems with their core banking systems (breakdowns, delay, heavy traffic, unable to close the end-of-month due to adjustments in accounts, etc) so there may be reporting delays.

Also, some banks default their system to classify a loan as due at different dates. Some banks classify the installment due after 5 days, 7 days or on the due date itself, depending on bank policy. This will all effect the bank’s reporting to their risk department. If a bank classify it as overdue 1 day after the due date, 80%-90% of customers will be on the due report for the Bank’s collection team. Usually, a grace period is given so that the report that the collection team gets is shorter and easier to manage.

In short, whatever that comes out in the CCRIS report will depend on how fast your bank report the account to CCRIS, as BNM only compiles whatever that have been reported to them.

 

 

Frequently asked question

What is Special Attention Account?
Loans reported under Special attention Account are loans that are non performing loans (NPL) that the financial institution has placed under special monitoring in view of recovering the loan or in the midst of collection. Loans under special debt management schedules such as negotiated by AKPK will also fall under here.

It could be due to dishonoured/bounced cheque incidents too.

You definitely don't want to be 'special' when it comes to CCRIS report.

 

What can bank see when it check my CCRIS report?

Generally, when a Bank conduct CCRIS check, they will have access to various credit reports such as:

  • Summary Credit Report – Information on the total credit exposure and conduct of account of the customer
  • Detailed Credit Report – Information on the specific outstanding credit facilities and new credit applications of a borrower
  • Motor Vehicle Report – Information of motor vehicles which are used as collateral for credit facilities
  • Customer Supplementary Information Report – Information on the addresses, telephone numbers, employers names and occupation of the customer for the last 3 years.

However, as a consumer requesting the credit report directly from BNM, a consumer will only be able to obtain the Summary Credit Report, as a reference to the total exposure and conduct of the account.

 

How does bank define loan repayment due which appears in CCRIS report?

Certain banks classify it to be due after 1 day of the due date, but some classify it only after 14 days, or any other days. It will surely get classified if overdue for more than 30 days

 

If my credit application is denied by a financial institutions, does it mean that I am blacklisted?
No. Bank Negara Malaysia does not blacklist anyone as it does not express any opinion about the information in the credit report. Information on rejected credit applications is not provided in credit reports in order to ensure that a financial institution will not be prejudiced by the decision of another financial institution.
In processing loan application, the financial institution will perform a credit assessment on the borrower. This may involve background checks from various sources.  The information provided by the credit reference agencies will assist financial institutions in their evaluation. The financial institutions need to use all available data to help them make good decisions and be prudent in their loans and advances.

To improve your credit rating as evident in CCRIS report, you have to resolve this matter with your bank, and not from CCRIS (which is under Bank Negara)

 

Can I request a copy of my CCRIS report from the bank which I am applying a loan/credit card?

Normally, bankers or mortgage officers NOT allowed to obtain the report to give it to customers, because firstly, the Bank have to pay for such reports and therefore it is Bank’s property (for you, there is no fees to get the report). Secondly, the passing of such reports to customers is not part of the Bank’s job or approved services. Usually, banker can inform verbally if there is a problem with the payments record in the CCRIS, but usually, he/she would advise that you personally obtain your own report if you want to know the details.

 

Can the information in CCRIS can be viewed/abused by other party?

The CCRIS report information can only be accessed by authorised persons in the bank, and is not available to the public in general. Your credit report:

  • Can only be obtained by the bank IF a formal CREDIT application is made by you to that particular bank
  • Cannot be viewed by other banks, at any time
  • Does not show your deposit / investment accounts
  • Does not show the tenure of the credit facility enjoyed by you
  • Does not show the conduct of facilities for periods above one year

I have no CCRIS record because I do not have any credit with any financial institutions. That is a good thing right?

Not at all. A Bank appreciates a GOOD CREDIT RECORD rather than ZERO CREDIT RECORD. They can’t assess you if you have nothing to show. They might think you have a bad credit history so that's why no other banks are approving you loans.

It makes sense to have some borrowing which is 'well-behaved' by having on time repayment, such as credit cards. The trick is to get your first credit facility such as a credit card.

 

I am taking ASB loan maxed out at RM 200k to invest in ASB because ASB gives good interests which is more than my interest I am paying for the loan. Wise decision?

Not quite if you are going to take mortgage to buy real estate property.

ASB loan will show up as Personal Loan in CCRIS report. From a bank perspective, it may consider your monthly repayment commitment as such:

RM200,000 loan x 5% : RM10,000

This will affect your DSR (Debt Servicing Ratio) evaluation when you apply for big loans like mortgage.

 

What do banks typically look out for that give a bad impression?

  1. Accounts under legal status (legal action being taken) or special attention accounts
  2. Missed or late repayments
  3. Utilization of credit limits (E.g. A high utilization of Credit Card or Overdraft limits is an indicator of poor finances)
  4. High Debt Servicing Ratio (DSR). This is done via comparing your income documents against the total outstanding credit
  5. Multiple active loan or credit applications. The more you applications you made, the more “desperate” you seem to banks. Sometimes credit approvers reject you application if they see that you have applied (and pending approve) several credit cards from several/many banks at the same time / or within a short period of time. The concern is that if the other application for credit cards get approved by the other banks at the same time, your exposure to unsecured credit goes up. So the bank processing the card now rejects your application. For example, you submitted credit card application for limit of RM 20,000 (if your salary is RM 6,500 per month) to 5 banks. In the CCRIS report obtained by the bank, it will show 5 application for credit submitted and pending approval, amounting to a total RM 100,000 unsecured credit limit. If all your application gets approved, this will make you a high risk applicant.

 

Any tips to improve my CCRIS record to improve my chances of successfully applying for a loan?

(from LoanStreet: Everything you should know about CCRIS)

  1. If you have high credit utilization, pay down some your credit lines before submitting a loan application.
  2. A consistent string of 1’s in your repayment behaviour could indicate payment due dates that are earlier than your pay day. Try to get your bank to delay the billing cycle.
  3. If you have known late payment records, wait 12 months (or at least 6 months) from your last known late payment record before submitting a loan application
  4. Limit your amount of unsecured loan and credit applications. If shopping around, shop around first, then selectively apply for the best products. Contrary to popular practice, too many loan/credit applications actually hurt your chances of getting the best deals.

 

I really don't think CCRIS report is good for the public.

Without CCRIS, we will go backwards 10 years in personal financing development. Back to the days where the only place you can obtain a personal loan is to have 1 or 2 guarantors, and security deposit requirements. Furthermore, you will have no chance to apply for a personal loan except at your own existing bank which has already your track record. Back in the days (80's) where banks insist on “introducers” i.e. you cannot even open a savings account at certain banks unless your are introduced by an existing customer of the bank.

CCRIS check and reporting provides valuable information to Banks when deciding to grant unsecured financing, such as personal loan or credit cards. With CCRIS report, approvals for financing without guarantor, collateral and salary deduction requirements are possible. Banks are willing to take more risks only if they are able to understand the consumer behaviour backed up by reliable data. CCRIS check and reporting fits that role.

 

How to banks approve credit facility?

Generally, a bank will classify the applications received as Green, Red or Amber. Ultimately, green and red is no brainer. However, for amber cases, bank will try to improve approval ratio by going the extra mile to salvage it.

Normally from the total applications received per month, bank may get about 25% to 35% green cases (outright approval), 40% red cases (outright rejection) and the balance is usually Amber (KIV).

If during the month, the approval ratio is only 25%, the credit or sales team will re-look at the Amber cases to try to salvage it to increase the approval ratio to maybe 40%. Bank is a profit making organization with high acquisition costs. Thus, if its approval ratio is less than 20%, that means it spends money to market to 100 prospects but only getting business from 20 person; which is not good business sense. The ideal target approval ratio is 40% to 55%, which indicates a good efficiency KPI.

 

[PTPTN Special Section]

How does overdue outstanding PTPTN loan affect you?

The latest step taken by PTPTN is to list the borrowers in CCRIS. This will affect future purchase of house or any personal loan/car loan you apply from banks. When the banks check on the CCRIS and saw many months of bad repayment they will reject the loan.

This section will clear your questions on how PTPTN outstanding amount affects your CCRIS

 

Who will be listed under CCRIS for PTPTN loan?

All borrowers who are supposed to repay PTPTN 6 months after graduation will have their name listed in CCRIS

 

Can I check CCRIS repayment records for PTPTN with PTPTN itself?

No, you cannot.

 

What does a PTPTN borrower need to do to ensure he/she does not encounter issue applying for loans from banks?

PTPTN borrower need to follow strictly the repayment schedule furnished by PTPTN. Main thing is to avoid late repayments. It is not about settling the outstanding balance.

 

Can a PTPTN borrower discuss his/her PTPTN repayment record with Bank Negara (BNM) or banks to get loan application approved?

No, you cannot. All discussion on PTPTN loan, whether it is about settling the outstanding balance or restructuring the repayment schedule must be done with PTPTN. Contact PTPTN branches here.

 

What does a PTPTN borrower need to do to 'remove' his or her PTPTN record from CCRIS?

A PTPTN borrower needs to settle the outstanding sum to remove his or her name from CCRIS. CCRIS record will be updated to status = SETTLED within 7 days of settling the loan.

 

What if a PTPTN borrower cannot afford to settle the full PTPTN loan amount but wants to avoid CCRIS related issues?

A PTPTN borrower needs to follow the repayment schedule to ensure the repayment is never late. If he or she encounter financial problems to repay, approach PTPTN to restructure the repayment schedule.

 

How does a PTPTN borrower request a restructuring of repayment schedule?

He or she needs to possess good conduct by not being late in repayments for the past 6 months continuously without any outstanding amount in each repayments.

 

If a PTPTN borrowers settled in full the outstanding loan, does his or her existing CCRIS record turn from bad to good? Can he or she now gets approved for loan application from banks?

If a PTPTN borrower has 'bad' repayment records in CCRIS for PTPTN loan, this record will still persist for the past 12 months before it gets 'cleared' because CCRIS report shows all your repayment histories for the most recent 12 months. Approval on any loan applications from banks is at banks' discretion.

 

When does a PTPTN borrower need to make monthly repayment to prevent CCRIS related issues?

To ensure monthly repayment is being updated in PTPTN system in the same month, a PTPTN borrower must make repayment by 27 of each month. Any repayment made after this date will only be reflected in the following month, making that repayment as 'late' by the system. This is true for all repayment channels, in general. However, any repayment made via PTPTN counters will always be updated as 'paid' in the same month.

 

Why my PTPTN repayment history is 'bad' in CCRIS report even though I make payment every month?

  • Repayment are being made later than the schedule repayments. For example, you only start repayments to PTPTN 1 year after graduation, instead of 6 months.
  • The monthly repayment is less than the scheduled monthly repayment as dictated by PTPTN. For example you only pay RM 500 whereas you should be paying RM 800.

 

What type of loans are easier to get approved?

Secured/collateralized loan such as mortgage. Unsecured loan such as credit card and personal loans are categorised as a very high risk product (which also give high returns). As such, the credit criteria is the most complicated, sophisticated and most strict among the Bank’s products.

Ponder over this:

“If the customer don’t have enough money to pay his credit cards, housing loan and car loans, he will have to make a decision. Firstly, he will do everything to pay his housing loan, because his family needs a roof over their head. Then he will pay his car loan so that he can go to work or to the supermarket to buy groceries. Then he will pay his food bills. Credit cards always comes last.”

How a good credit score can make you more attractive to opposite sex

 

You don’t need a fancy sports car or a killer body to impress a date.

A national study performed by Discover and Match Media Group of 2,000 American adults found that a good credit score may help land you a relationship. Match owns dating websites and apps -such as Tinder, Match.com, and OkCupid – covering 63 million global users.

For 58% of online daters, a good credit score is more attractive than a nice car. Half of those surveyed prefer a partner to have a good credit score over an impressive job title, and 40% took the credit score over a physically fit body.

Additionally, 69% said that financial responsibility is a very or extremely important quality when looking for a person to date. This topped the numbers for traditional traits daters look out for like a sense of humor and attractiveness, which 67% and 51% of those surveyed found important, respectively.

Financial responsibility is more important for women finding a partner than men. Women rated this quality as important 77% of the time, compared to 61% for men.

When asked about the personality traits of someone with a good credit score, 73% of survey respondents envisioned a responsible person, 40% thought trustworthy, and 38% equated credit scores with intelligence.

“Money talks, but your credit score can speak more about who you are as a person, and singles agree that those with good credit tend to be conscientious and reliable,” says Dr. Helen Fisher, chief scientific advisor for Match.com.

Fixing a poor credit score is easier than it sounds – and it doesn’t have to take long to boost your number.

Making on-time payments is the first step to improving your score. Scheduling automatic payments or setting up a calendar alert a few days before the due date can help make sure you never miss a payment.

It is also crucial to pay more than the minimum balance on your credit card each month. Focus on the debt with the highest interest rate first, since paying it down will save you the most on interest charges.

Understanding someone’s financial security early in a relationship can help avoid further issues.

A majority – 53% – of respondents said finances had strained a past or current relationship. This makes money a bigger wedge in relationships than politics or religion, two topics practically forbidden for a first date.

    • James

      I was having financial difficulty in 2009 which I have been served with judgement order for my Housing Loan account. I have regularised my account the same year then and keep it up to date until now 2017. I’m in the midst of applying personal loan  and the record hinder me from applying for any loans despite i have been maintaining good record (except the record in 2009).

      I have met the bank and request them to delete or withdraw the record from my Central Credit Reference Information System (CCRIS). Their reply to me is… even I have regularised my account, their bank policy is not to withdraw it from CCRIS until I settled my account in ‘FULL’. I have 22 years more to settle!!! Is this how it’s suppose to be? Please advice me as I think it is not fair for a citizen to be penalised for their past record.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        James, sorry to hear that.

        Most most people failed to seek independent advice from independent financial advisers like myself, before making decisions like yours back in 2009 – which eventually made ’em ended up in sticky situation like yours.

        What’s done was done, you might feel it is not fair but bank is absolutely a profit-making organizations.
        They don’t give a f*ck what you think or face right now.

        And –

      Hi sifu…I have doubts.I have been blacklisted.. Last 2 years.and now I’m started to paid my debts with the bank monthly.now it has been 1y 2m and there is no problem. What I want to know is do I need to settle all the amount to get cleared from blacklisted? What I do I need to do to clear all the sums?is there any other way?because I didn’t have a large amount of money to settle it all.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        CCRIS is not a system to blacklist you because you have outstanding debts. It is OK to have say, credit card debts, personal loan debt, mortgages, etc but one must service the monthly installments in time (don’t let it overdue every month). Doing so will make you appear in good standing even though you have outstanding debts. In other words, you don’t need to ‘settle’ all debts to be ‘cleared’.

        If you don’t have $ to settle all debts, it is OK, the most important thing to do is to PAY ON TIME.

    • Keshz

      Hi,

      How is CCRIS report being updated? based on the clarification for this question is this applied for new loan application also?
      Let say i submit for new house refinance loan application on 1st day of the month and print CCRIS on same month 16th, will the CCRIS report state this loan application details or will this details only will be updated on the following month 16th?

      Thanks

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hard to give you definite answer because it depends on bank’s procedure and each bank is different – there is no way for us to know exactly unless you are a bank staff handling this aspect.

        You need to understand 2 factors – what is the cutoff date a bank submits the record to BNM, and the date BNM takes the record and update in the system.

        The question is – what exactly do you intend to do and what is your concern to know this info?

    • Enn

      I made a loan and due to contreversial issues i surrendered the car back to the bank and got black listed without my knowledge. Its been more than 8yrs now. I still dispute the debt. One thing i found was the bank witheld one information ..the hire purchase agreement was never served to me.. making it unenforceable by law as per section 5a. How do i clear myself from bank negara report?

      thanks in advance

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Vina, easy, because your CCRIS report which runs for the most recent past 12 months, still carries history of your ‘bad debt’ – as the bank sees it. Go to BNM to print a copy of your CCRIS to understand what I mean.

      hi.. i’ve been trying to apply personal loan from several banks.. and later i found out that my ptptn is causing the decline of my loan submission.. so i already clear my ptptn using my epf.. so i try once again to apply loan.. and yet still decline.. before this the code is RD01 but now the code is RD87.. it just so annoying that i ask the bank what is the reason and they didn’t even know why.. what is code RD87?

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Nina, pls read the update section on PTPTN loan above.

    • Sheila

      hi, i have been listed in c criss how d clear it . if im about paid my outstanding how about my other monthly due

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Sheila, CCRIS listing is not a bad thing, you must understand this. It is up for bank’s interpretation whether you are a credible lender or not. Pls re-read this article again.

    • Tan

      Hi, if next Monday receive news from banker that car loan has been rejected then can I immediately reapply? If next Monday to submit the settlement letter of ptptn arrears, how long does it take to clear my record? At this time being can still reconsider by the banker for car loan application?
      Please advise.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        No use to immediately apply. You need to RESOLVE the issue why your application rejected in the first place.
        Pls re-read the article, and print your own CCRIS report so you understand better. If needed, do bank in a nominal fee for 1-1 consultation.

    • mei

      Hi Lieu,
      Can i know if i have late payment 1 day for my RHB easy personal loan, what will it cause? if it consider as late payment is’it need 12 mths to make my name clear? or what should i do to make my name clean or must wait for 12 mths?
      “If you are late in payment (lets say 6 months outstanding in Feb 2015) but you have paid off the outstanding in March 2015, the records will still show February = 6 months, March = 0 months, April = 0 months. As CCRIS is a report for 12 month period, the 6 months in arrears records will only ‘disappear’ in February 2016 (12 months later). You just cannot erase or request to clear it before that, as it is a rolling report.”
      i didn’t get it….is’it mean if i late for FEB after that even the next mth i pay by date but it will show as late and will keep on late for 12 mths? or can i double pay for the next mth to make my name clean?

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Yes Mei, your understanding is correct. No, no use to double pay. You should go ahead and print your own CCRIS report then you’ll understand better.

      Hi

      I’m under AKPK. Am thinking to get a new car which is lower monthly installment compare to current car, then at the same time trade in current car and do settlement with bank. Also the ownership cost is much lower for the new car. What is the possibility to get the car loan application approved?

      hi boleh saya tahu ape maksut kod RD01

    • PRR

      I have checked my CRISS report there are no special attention but my housing loan repayment always shows 1 month in arrears/late payment. My problem is each time I apply any loans, the bank always give this remark “strolling”. I have asked the bank officer and they always reply dont know, it is the system. What “strolling” actual means…

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi PRR, you might want to clarify w/ bank on this. The thing is, the CCRIS report we print out as individual is different from the version retrieved by bank. Let me know how it goes.

      I think i have CCRIS due to my AEON Loan about RM2k but how long does it take after i make full payment of my only debt to get other loans such as Applying car, Credit card and etc.. Refinance does not negotiable with the AEON. And so on i couldn’t make any loan since 2013 to 2015.

    • Elaine Lai

      I can give insight some of the issue related to blacklist by CCRIS.

      Those not paying more than 3 mths & blacklisted, will be blacklist for 4-5 years with better condition payment of debt in or within the time. Its also depend how long they can release you. Talk to your bank for more infor related to your debts. After the period of years from the date that you are blacklisted, you are free to get or apply a new loan & credit cards. This not applicable to those finish up their loan within the period of years or immediate clear off. If you immediate clear off your hse loan after you got blacklisted, pls get the bank letter or your S&P lawyers to clear out all the outstanding as well as its strata title for housing loan. Thus you are automatically free from CCRIS blacklisted. If you clear the credit card possible take a year or 2 (depend on banks) from the record as they want to monitoring your record. This duration like few years is to educate & let them clear off whatever they have on hand & prevent them the get another loan to make them getting worse like get another hole to cover up to existing holes. The bankruptcy are increasing and youngster as young as 25 years old is alarming , thus Bank Negara take all the necessary step to prevent this to getting worst.

      The banks getting tighten the rule in loan money to public to save guard the banks system. Its all happen after the incident of USA subprime crisis whereby more than 100 years establish bank can collapsed due to huge debts unable to be collected. Currently Bank Negara implement the BASEL III in Msia banking in how the banking can get back more revenue to the bank after the increase the loan intrest rate since last year July 2014 & replacement of BLR.

      Those have clear of CCRIS & not even have credit card, banks have problem in approved your loan due to no record on your history payment of your debt/loan that they can refer to, therefore they need your guarantor. They need to see the pattern/ frequency in you paying back the debt/loan, unless you have a assets or properties that you alr own to prove that your assets value are equal to the loan you applied. Sometimes having credit card not a bad thing but displine enough to pay on time. Thought credit card can create a double sword to the user if you not using it wisely. If you able to pay in cash or in time, having credit card to let them see your good record shldn’t be a problem in loan application.

      Hi,

      I owe 3 credit card and settle 2 cc. currently i wanted to buy car, and the bank officer told me i had a special attention account with bank negara. so let say i settle the 3rd cc, can car loan approve immediately? as the 3rd cc, i try to settle but when call to the bank, no one is calling back to me. cz i wanted to ask for discount and settle full.

      Q: if i settle my cc, can i get the car loan immediately since i did not owe anything.
      thanks

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Settling your cc does not automatically means you are immediately a good paymaster. What bank want to see is your trend of repayment. Having said that, not having any single credit card or loan repayment is also bad because bank cannot know your repayment history!

      i have problems now..i havent checked my ccris or ctos yet..i have several commitment which i pay ontime cz they are auto deduct from my salary, and i paying my credit card in minimum payment for a pass few months, will that be effected my ccris bcz i still have a lot of debt? i tried apply for a loan to clear my existing credit card, but got rejected everytime i apply for it..

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Terry, I think you are not on any CCRIS/CTOS blacklist, it’s just that financial institutions classify you as high risks borrower due to a lot of outstanding loans/commitment

      What is the meaning of RD01 IN APPLIYING LOAN….

    • Lee

      Hi Lieu, now i wan to apply housing loan then the bank side rejected and say i had been blacklisted by EPF. Reason being is i use fake EPF statement to apply credit card in year 2006 which I cannot rembr wats going on tat time.

      Now problm is, how to clear it from CCRIS?

      Thanks in advance for your advice.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Go to EPF obviously you need to. And likely if you mention BLACKLIST, it is in your CTOS report, not CCRIS report. You need to talk to EPF to resolve this if they are the one who filed your blacklist, then they are the one who can un-blacklist you.

      Hi,

      Need your advice here. My case is like this:
      Last year i applied for personal loan but was rejected because of the ccris report.
      This year i applied again, after i have cleared all my bad record and my ccris report now is beautiful.
      The thing is now the loan is still rejected by the bank. When i asked the guy (marketing) he said my record and everything is excellent and he also did not understand why it is rejected.
      Appreciate if you can provide me the list of possibilities of why my application rejected.
      Thanks!!!

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        I won’t know, you need to try with other bank if that helps.
        Also check your own Debt Servicing Ratio. If you check CCRIS report of your own is OK, then likely it is due to debt servicing ration exceeded causing your loan to be rejected.

        DO you mean 3 in any of the month when you check your CCRIS report? If yes, that means, you’ve got 3 months of outstanding payment for that loan.

      Currently, I’m interested to buy a 2nd hand value house. The S&P agreement are stating both my name & my fiancé name (not register yet). But the problem is he’s under the program of AKPK. In term of home loan from banks, will the chances of success is higher under both my name & his name? My report in CCRIS is clean… Please advise. Thank you.

      • Darren Liaw

        Hi Jade,
        My name is Darren, so happenned I saw your old posting in this site. May i know whether did you managed to secure home loans from the bank under both of you & your fiance’s name?
        Frankly, I’m facing the similar situation right now.
        Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you very much.

        Rgds,

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Bank will evaluate you based on your income alone. If your income alone does not qualify for the loan amount, then putting your fiancee name in in this case is not gonna help.

    • Ben

      Hi lieu,
      I currently having 2 PL with RHB and AEON for 2 years & 5 years respectively.
      I wish to apply for third loan with banks but to no avail.
      All the payment history were clean and on due.
      My first commitment date is 18/3/2013. Dont have any commitment other than the above showed.
      1) nowadays bank will surely monitor and require at least 1 year of ccris report?
      2) in that case, when can I probably go for the next loan ?

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        1) Yes
        2) I don’t know by just having these info. Bank will also check on your DSR based on your current monthly commitment vs your monthly income evidence. Even if your record is clean, would it make sense for the bank to lend you more money if your income = 5k but your commitment total up 4.5k? Common sense, yes?

    • Mira

      Hi..i need ur advice. I applied for personal loan but was rejected because of my ccris report from the housing loan. I think i have a consistent 1 because i always pay late every month. The due date for the month is every 1st, but i only pay on the 28th. Every month will be the same. That is why i know i have a consistent 1 record in ccris.

      My question is,
      1) if i still continue with my current pattern of payment , is there a possible way that my personal loan will be approve? What can i do so that i can get the personal loan.
      2) if i follow the due date and pay as what banks want, when can i apply back the loan. Howlong it takes for my ccris report to clear.

      Really need your help in this matter.

      Thanks!!

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Mira, I think it is obvious that you should not have overdue debt payments for a clean CCRIS report. It would take 12 months for the record to clear. Cheers

    • Thomas

      Hi Lieu,

      I’m one of the director on a Sdn. Bhd company. When the business closed, I’m the one who sign the agreement between my company and the supplier. I also received lawyer letter from the supplier but none of it have my personal name.

      But I wonder why the supplier still can file my personal name in CCRIS and affected my loan approval.

      Would appreciate if you can advise why they allow to include my name.

      Thank You.

      Regards.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        HI Thomas, although it is a Sdn Bhd, most business owner will sign a letter of guarantee when taking loans from banks. You might not realize it when signing lots of documents.I am not sure if this is for your case, but it looks like it does explain what you are experiencing

    • rosa

      Hi,

      As you mention, credit card outstanding will be updated in ccris on the other month every 15th. I got alot of 0% installment in my card and it didn’t show as outstanding balance except on statement date. I make full payment every months.
      My questions are:

      1) I only use my card for installment, let say my monthly amount 1k. Can I know amount updated in ccris? 1k or 0?
      2) installment hold cc credit limit, does it effect ccris record? Installment amount indicate in the report?
      3) from ur article, amount updated in ccris taken anytime from 1 – 31 last month. The amount updated base on outstanding bal on statement date or average of o/s on that month?
      4) some say, credit card commitment not base on outstanding bal but 5% from the credit limit eventhough the card holder didn’t utilize the card at all. Is it true?

      Thanks.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        1) It will show the outstanding amount which is charged to your card, which include any monthly installments incurred
        2) No, only the outstanding monthly amount of any cc in the most recent month
        3) On the stmt balance
        4) what do you mean? I don’t get your question

    • Raymond Lim

      Hi Sifu, I want to ask something. Hope I can get the answer here because since I been googles my question but unable to get my answer. Here is my problems. Im 36 years old and I been BNM to get my CCRIS report. Everything was clean without any records or under “Special Attention”. It’s because in my life, I never do any loan or using any Credit Card. So my CCRIS report showing so clean. And then I’m going to CTOS self-check and in CTOS report at “Section E” have showing p1.com and Digi Telecommunication. In bankruptcy section, that was “Section D” was clean. Also in “Section C & B” was clean as well.

      So early this month, I was make a Hire Purchase at PBB and Ambank for secondhand. Total loan was RM26,500. Few days after submitted my documents, I received a call from bank and they said I need a guarantor to joint account for my loan because I don’t have a “Payment History” in BNM.

      The question is in my CTOS “Section E” was marked by p1.com and Digi Communication, is it will affected on my car loan if I try to resubmit to others banks?

      Hope all sifu-sifu here can give me some explanation about it. Your informations is highly appreciated.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        CTOS normally for business people. If you owe another business entity money, and when people want to do biz with you, then can check how trustworthy are you in paying up.
        If you have no repayment history bank can check on, I am not surprised bank require you to have a guarantor

    • Nawarat

      I have just obtained Credit report from BNM. I have zero credit account, zero credit application in the past 12 months. I have been living debt-free life for many years now and I prefer to continue living like this but i was told that having zero credit like this will affects my credit score rating. Is that true? I dont need to get credit card or any loan but infuture i might need to change my car and get a car loan. Will bank reject my loan in future if i still have zero credit like this?

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Nawarat, nice! you are debt free. It may pose a problem because bank don’t know how is your repayment habit/history. Suggest to keep at least 1 credit card, and use it for grocery shopping/petrol filling and pay in full on time every month

Now, i am unable to apply any loan even the restructure period has ended. FYI i have pay as normal payment since end of restructure period.

      Hi Sir

      I have 3 personal loans for the moment and I’m looking for an alternative, which is to consolidate it and pay it all it once. Is it a good idea? How many banks do offer such facilities .

      Well, I do have late payments somehow. 🙁 Please help.

    • Eric

      Hi Lieu,

      I went to Bank Negara and print my CCRIS. Currently I have only two commitment and the record is clean. But there’s still showing a status “Summon/Writ files” in the credit card column which i already fully settled past few years ago. I’ve been rejected by banker last year. They didn’t tell me the reason. Until today, I got my CCRIS.

      Why the bank negara did not update the latest status? Can I request them to update and clear off the word of “Summon/Writ file”? It was so irritating when I get rejected the loan from others. 🙁

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Eric, I am not too sure what it means, does it mean traffic summons outstanding? Have you checked?

    • ANA

      Tot of applying a housing loan now, but my concern is from the past 12 months i always have a bad habit of not clearing my credit card debt,, which amount from 1k to 3k (max credit limit of the card is 8k, always not utilise)
      however i still always made a monthly payment to the credit card account but just not clear up the full amount owning .. but i have just cleared up the debt today. (nothing else commitment i have )

      is this will effect my loan approval and will under ccris?

      your reply is much appreciated.

      thanks

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        No ANA , not paying in full as long as you don’t miss your payment is NOT a black spot in the CCRIS report. So it should be ok. Let me know if otherwise?

    • Ck

      I hv one non perform loan after convert my credit card balance to term loam frm Citi, recently it was clean on my ccris report after I make an full settlement in last few week. However they is another credit card rescheduled payment scheme for my maybank card with good payment conditions, that is the only commitment appear in my ccris report. I plan to buy a house after few month from now, may I know how big the impact or how it will affect my loan application ? Thanks

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Should be OK if you don’t have late payment for the past 12 months 🙂

      because of this issues, i tried to apply hsbc personal loan, she mention i have actually effected from CCRIS report, so from here the officer advice to settle my credit card and get the statement shown i have done the payment.

      yet still im concern, the hsbc loan will approve or not on base from my credit card record?

      plus i do have ptptn loan as well, ist time paid was in 2010 around rm800.00 until now no payment.

        Hafizah, you should start timely repayment of all your debt installments from now on 🙂

      I’ve cleared my ccris outstanding 2 months ago. I went to bank negara to print my ccris and it shows blank. There is no financial status printed on the ccris form. However every application neither credit card and housing loan are being rejected.

      I need to know why….i need to purchase a house and it is so difficult to do so. Please help me to get some solution since my age is catching up

      thanks

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        What do you mean by no financial status? Means no record of any credit card? This is a bad thing too, since bank cannot gauge your repayment history/habit. They will feel suspicious on why a person of your age (assume not fresh grad) don’t have repayment history.
        If you think your should have some records on CCRIS report but it doesn’t show, then need to resolve it with BNM.

    • sara

      i have a 4k credit with AEON, did my name listed in ccris?

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Yes, Sara. Everyone of our name will be in CCRIS, so to prevent your misunderstanding, what you are asking is – will my AEON outstanding credit appear in CCIRS report. The answer is YES. But it will not be a problem unless you skip a payment or two. These will be red flags to your future loan application.

      Hi, I have 2 credit cards…but until now i paid 200 monthly for its settlement without fail…as long as i paid any amount for both of it due to my income, i will not be listed in ccris, right?

      Hi, i have been informed by my Financial Institution (Citi) that i have more than 2 credit cards and so my credit card account with them need to be force cancelled based on BNM guidelines. Actually, i only hold 1 credit card with them and do not have any CC with other banks . So, what should i do now? Besides, i also have ready credit facility with them, is this consider same with credit card?
      Thx..

      Hi Lieu

      If let say I have one late payment for my credit card, just one time. Does it effect my loan application approval?

      And if in my CCRIS report i have 1 0r 2, banks will directly reject my application? Can i make an appeal? Cause I’m desperately need approval for my housing loan.

      Thanks

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Yes, so when you submit application for loan, perhaps you want to proactively submit a supporting letter stating that one late repayment is NOT due to your inability to repay, but due to, say, forgotten, etc.
        WHen you say 1 or 2, for how many months the 1 or 2 tag persists? As the article above, if every month also got 2, meaning you always have 2 months outstanding installments in that month, which is not good!

    • YJ

      Hi, currently i got offered by Citibank Ready Credit. i got some doubts on below,

      1. I wondered this type of overdraft consider as personal loan in my CCRIS record?
      2. I have never been using this ready credit since the first day i got it, so will the CCRIS record consider the limit given by bank as my commitment if i would like to apply for house loan?

      Thanks.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi YJ, not no unless you use your overdraft, then it will show up as outstanding amount.

        No, the limit on your credit card will not affect your CCRIS rating UNLESS you have outstanding amount on it.

    • Vin

      Hi,
      My personal loan applications were rejected because I maximized credit card utilization. I have few credit cards. If I bring down the utilization to 80% for all my credit cards, do you think the bank will approve my personal loan application? Also, what’s the healthy level of debt service ratio for loans to get approved?

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Dear Vin, not likely. Understand that banks lend money to people who don’t need it. Why would you need personal loans in the first place, may I ask? (Banks are asking the same question when they review your application, believe me)

    • jj

      I have cleared my akpk loan on april 2013. On top of that I have obtained all release from all banks. I have requested all banks to update my account status which to clear my from CCRIS report. They have told me that bank will update their CCRIS report everymonth. So now , I need to apply personal loan. Below are few questions.
      1. Do I need to wait after 12 months evendo all banks has cleared my name from CCRIS report?
      2. Is it true, bank can release my name from CCRIS report after 1mth of my date settlement. I seeking your advise and better solution to expedite my personal loan request.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Dear JJ
        1. Yes
        2. I’d put it another way. Why is there an urgent request to apply personal loan again if you just cleared your AKPK loan? And even bank update your CCRIS, it would not ‘clear’ after 1 month as you put it. It will be updated after 1 month that you no longer bear outstanding amount, but they can see your credit repayment history for the past 12 months at any time. There is no way for you to ‘clear’ it faster because it is an auto revolving report for the most recent 12 months.

      Hi,

      I have been trying to get PL but recently go rejected by RHB. The code that appeared was RD01. I got 2 credit cards, one of it i got it less than a month. Besides that no other commitment. My records paying for credit card was good.

      Any idea why i have got rejected by RHB?

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi ayu, what about your salary compared to the PL you are taking? And why you need the PL in the first place?

    • Kelly Tham

      I wish to apply house loan, and I just clear all my credit card and cancelled all the card as some of the payment is not good, so can I apply the house loan immediately? Or how long can I apply? If I submit my release letter is that any chance to get the house loan? Other than credit card, I have no other loan or purchase in hand, please advise? Thanks.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Kelly, all records will be cleared in 12 months – good or bad. The release letter may help but you’d need to negotiate with the banker

    • harris

      i need an advise, i got a bad ccris record last year but manage to payed all the debt by the end of last year between 11 and 12 month. i even got the official full settlement letter from bank…between this pass few month i have been trying to get a PL reason because i want to restructure my financial cash flow….but bank keep rejecting my application….now im pening how come? i payed all my debt……would be great if anyone can give me an advise on this….tq

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Harris, the CCRIS record will have the history of the most recent 12 months, regardless whether you settled your debt or not. So my guess is, you’ll need to wait till Jan 2014 so that your bad record is dropped from the CCRIS report.
        Also, you need to look at the other aspect – your Debt Servicing Ratio. If you earn 3k but you take a personal loan with monthly repayment of 3k, sure cannot right?

    • Gurcharan Hans

      Hi,

      Recently applied for a loan through Bank Islam and it was rejected on the basis that my name does not appear on the CCris list, even though I am currently servicing a house loan with my wife. I receive my monthly statement from the bank, on my name and the S&P states that i am the principal.
      How do i rectify this?

      regards,

      Gurch

    • Goo

      Hi liew, recently I applied for a housing loan and the bank only approved 70 percent instead of 90 percent of loan amount. My feed back from the bank is my credit card commitment is quite high so I can’t get the Loan amount I wanted. In view thereof I proceeded to clear 80 percent of my credit card debts at end of April 2013. So when the record with bnm be updated so that I get my loan easier ? Is it necessary to cancel some of my credit cards to show I am less financial commitment?

      • LCF

        I think what you can do is print again the latest report this month or in June. It should show the balance of credit card is zero. Then you could appeal to the bank again with this self printed CCRIS report – see if that helps.

    • Karen Loh

      Hi

      I’ve few qns:
      1. How update is this ccris report?
      2. If I applied for 3 loans in 2010 and all applications were approved but I only accepted 1, will the CCRIS showed all 3?
      3. Will I be able to detect fraud from my ccris report? How?

      Thanks !

      • LCF

        Hi Karen
        1. As updated as Bank Negara database
        2. No, only the loan you actually took
        3. What kind of fraud you are referring to?

    • khusairi

      Hai.sy nk check brapa tunggakkan blacklist yg prlu sy Byr.

      • ChingFoo Lieu

        Hi Khusairi, you cannot check thru me 🙂 You have to check your own CCRIS or CTOS report

    • damian

      Im blacklisted.i guess but i can open my account in bank.is that mean if i can pay all debt,will i be able to make a loan or my name is cleared.from the blacklisted stuff?or i need to wait for few years to get my name cleared from the blacklist?

      • Damian, first of all, you should ask the bank whether it is rejected because of CCRIS or CTOS because they are two different things. Most probably, if you have a bad loan history, it will be CTOS if you have settled the loan more than 12 months. This is because CCRIS maintain records only for the past 12 months; anything other than that will not show in CCRIS.

        However, if it is blacklist you are referring to which cause you to have problem, then you need to check your CTOS report for banks or anyone who submit blacklist on you. Blacklist only happens when legal action is taken against youin court, and following a judgement in court, let say bankruptcy declaration, then CTOS or such companies will pick up the status for blacklisting. CTOS and such companies then sells information to banks for the credit checking on legal action. And their records are based on the legal action.It will not ‘clear’ by its own, you need to clear it yourself.

        It is important to remember that CTOS is a one way street. Once your name goes into CTOS, it stays there and unlikely to be removed. When do settle, your record is still there but only your status will be updated to “CASE SETTLED”. When asking the Bank to “clear” the CTOS records, it doesn’t mean DELETE but it means UPDATE the status of your record. And yes, you can write a letter to the Bank to pass to CTOS to update your record after full settlement.

        Again to reiterate, CCRIS records the payment history, but CTOS records the legal actions that goes through the civil court system. If it goes to court and a summons is issued, most likely CTOS will pick that up in their system. It is really difficult to clear this record, and sometimes it does take time until it is done. If you want to clear your records, you can go directly to CTOS and present all the documents issued by the courts that has absolved you of the debt to your debtors i.e. no more outstanding legal summons. CTOS will process this and eventually it will go out of the system.

        You can also ask your debtors to submit to CTOS, but I think it is easier that you do yourself.

    • Julia

      Hi Lieu,

      I was out of work for a few months in 2011 and because of that my car loan payment was behind a month and sometimes 2 months for a long time. I never missed a payment every month, only problem was that no matter how, i was still late a month or 2 as i could not afford to pay more to settle the outstanding. So finally my bank advised me to restructure as this would make my payment record fresh as if it’s a new loan. So my new restructuring loan was official in Dec 2013 and 1st payment took effect in January 2013 and i have been paying on time – never behind schedule. And according to my bank, my record with CCRIS would be clean too. But just last week i applied for a very small personal loan and it got rejected. Im not sure why though. Any advise? Should i check with BNM?

      Thanks

      • Hi Julia, I think there are 2 recourses you can take here. One, is to check with the bank rejecting you on the reason. Second is to see for yourself your record is clean with BNM. It could be your debt service ratio is too high? For your current commitments added up together – like house, car loan, credit card debt etc. Either this or there could be a mistake if your record is clean like what you are being told 🙂
        Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.

        Hi Izhar, if you need to check whether you are blacklisted or not, you should check your CTOS.
        CCRIS report does not blacklist you, it only serves as info report. Having said that, while you are at it, do check your CCRIS report too to see anything not ‘clean’, by referring back to this guide above

      hi want to know either i can apply personal loan but im still pending payment credit card amount 13k.?can approved or not?

      • LCF

        I think unlikely, rosnita if if you Debt Servicing Ratio is high (>70% of your net income).
        However, if it is not, and provided your credit card/personal loans repayments are made on time (all ‘0’ when you check CCRIS report), then it should not be a problem.

    • Ji Ha

      May i know its that included PTPTN loan?

    • Casey

      Hi Lieu,
      I would like to do refinance of my house, use that money to pay all credit card debts, car loan and personal loans. Housing loan still has 50K outstanding. Bank evaluate the house with ~300K. But bank rejected my application. Is it due to high debt ratio that they reject? If I try to settle those loans and apply again. Will they approve? Or I need to wait for 1 year after settling those loans. So far my record of paying debts is OK, no delay. Any suggestion you can advise? I really have problem to pay those debts anymore. Appreciate your advice. Thanks

      • LCF

        Hi Casey, do you mean ” you have problem” or “you don’t have problem” paying those debts anymore? The best thing to do is to approach the banker directly and discuss about this matter. Only with such info at hand, it is hard for me to advise anything.

        • Casey

          Hi Lieu,
          I am not afford to pay those debts as my salary is not enough to pay minimum credit card payment and personal loans. So I urgently need money to pay those monthly debts. I did approach banker before somehow 1 year ago but bank rejected my house refinancing application with reason being the high debt ratio. Does it mean I need to clear those debts first before I can get my refinancing approved? Thanks for your advice

          • LCF

            Hi Casey, I am afraid that would be a Yes – the reasonable explanation for the refinancing non approval. seems like it’s pretty bad scenario, have you consider seeking help from AKPK? WHy I said so without even need to check CCRIS report – is that if you don’t have enough income to even pay your credit card and personal loan monthly minimum repayment, how can bank be convinced when you want to refinance your home – which means paying higher monthly mortgage repayment?

      Dear Lieu,

      I saw in your report stating one credit card which is “belum jelas”, but the Jumlah Baki Belum Jelas is ‘0’.

      I have that in my report too. Should I let it be, or should I clear it? (as I plan to apply for a home loan). If yes, how do I go about it?

      Thank.

      • As long as the ansuran tertunggak (outstanding amount) records are clean, that should be ok.

    • Steven Koh

      I settle my credit card full payment on Feb 2012 and I go to Bank negara to print my ccris. In my ccris is clean but still can’t get any approval from bank for my personal loan and credit card. Finally I get the answer from bank is they saw in the system show my record “restructure credit card” , thus all the bank reject my application.
      How to clear the record?

      Thank you

      • LCF

        Hi Steven, I think your record is clear, but banks is not sure what the “restructure credit card” statement means. So, imagine if you are banks, – you don’t want to risk your money if you see something you are not sure about.

        If I were you, I’d print/get additional written details from BNM and attach it together with the CCRIS report. The details should clearly state you’ve settled your card debts.

        If all fails, then I think you got to wait after Feb 2013 perhaps when your record does not show any “restructure credit card” records.

        But just to be fair, am not trying to offend you or anything, banks know this things well – as in, anyone who restructure credit card debt before would rate lower than a person who never did.

        Hope this helps

      • LCF

        Hi Nisha, you got to check with the banker personally. Different banks have different evaluation criterion. Ask them about what was the reason for rejection. In addition to that, you need to check your CTOS report as well. CCRIS does not blacklist anyone, it is just an information report, how banks interpret it might differ from one bank to another. CTOS report, on the other hand, blacklist us, and even you have settled your blacklisted loans, you need to take initiative to clear it from CTOS.

        Hi,

        My due date for car loan is on 23rd every month. But I only pay on 27th every mnth due to salary credited on 27th every mnth. Will this effect my ccris report to apply loan?

        • ChingFoo Lieu

          Yes it will if the bank system mark a loan repayment as overdue 3 days after the last due date. In practical, there might be a grace period of 2 weeks from the due date. I suggest you allocate funds to pay for the following month’s installment, and also check your CCRIS report to see if there is a “1” every month in terms of arrears of installment payment to the bank. If after checking your CCRIS report it does not show as “1”, then no worry on keep continue what you are doing.
