Tips to avoid late bill payments

To avoid mishaps during bank holidays, follow these tips:

Plan payments: First, schedule payments and transfers in advance. An important tip is to check when the bill expires so you don’t have any scares on the day; Use appointments: then use the appointment feature at your bank for future dates. It is possible to do this both with automatic debits and credit discounts and with pix; Monitor your account: finally, keep an eye on your balance and statements to avoid surprises.

All of these measures will ensure that you don’t get into trouble with your debts. In this sense, it is essential to pay attention to the annual calendars, so that there are no problems with default in the future.

After all, what is the difference between holidays and optional points?

In summary, holidays and optional holidays are two categories of dates that interrupt the normal work routine and activities, but they have significant differences.

Holidays are dates established by law, whether at federal, state or municipal level, on which rest is mandatory. They celebrate important events, such as a country’s independence, religious dates, among others.

The optional points, despite also being special dates, do not have the mandatory nature of rest. On these days, it is up to companies and government institutions to decide whether there will be normal operations or not.

While holidays are respected by everyone, optional points may vary, especially in the private sector, where the employer has the freedom to choose whether or not to adhere to the break in activities.
