112. Dating and adjustment of debits and credits in accounts


(1) A debit to a consumer’s account takes effect as of the date on which the consumer incurred that debit.


(2) A credit to a consumer’s account takes effect on the date the consumer makes a payment to the credit provider, or otherwise earns the right to have the account credited.


(3) A credit provider may subsequently adjust debits or credits to a consumer’s account, and the account balances, so as to accurately reflect the legal obligations of the consumer and the credit provider.
