  • SBV issued Circular 02/2023/TT-NHNN allowing banks to reschedule payment term and keep the same loan group to support customers. The key differences of this Circular compared to latest draft include:
  • Extension the restructuring program by additional 6 months (to 30 June 2024, instead of 31 Dec 2023 as presented in draft) and the extension to the objects applied (including consumer loans rather than only corporate lending)
  • The provisioning on restructured loans is made according to the restructuring result and the supplement to full provision to the real loan group can be spread into 2 years 2023 and 2024 (different to both previous Drafts but in the direction of easing provision pressure to banks).
  • SBV also issued Circular 03/2023/TT-NHNN, to cease the effectiveness of clause 11, Article 4 of Circular 16/2021 from 24 Apr 2023 till 31 Dec 2023. Essentially, this allows banks to buy back the unlisted corporate bond sold/distributed by them if the bonds and the issuers satisfy the following conditions:
  • The bonds buy back are the same bonds or the same issued batch with bonds that banks sold before.
  • Buyers of these bonds had paid in full for the bonds at the time the banks sold to them.
  • Issuers of these bonds have highest credit rating (internal rating by the banks) at the time banks buy back.
