Question 5:

What is meant by maturity of a bill of exchange?

Answer:

Maturity of a bill means a date on which the bill is due for payment. Maturity date of the bill differs on the basis of the terms and conditions of the bill. There are three types of bill, viz. after date bill, after sight bill and at sight bill.

1. After date bill: In case of after date bill, the payment of the bill is made on the maturity date of the bill. The maturity date of the bill is ascertained by adding three days of grace period with the specified period of the bill (which starts from the date of drawing). For example, if a bill is drawn on 1st March, 2011 and payable after one month; its maturity date is 4th April. If the maturity date happens to be a gazetted holiday, then the bill is due for payment one day before. However, if the maturity date happens to be a casual holiday, then the bill is due for payment after one day.

2. After sight bill: In case of after sight bill, the payment of the bill is made on the maturity date of the bill. The maturity date of the bill is ascertained by adding three days of grace period with the specified period of the bill (which starts from the date of acceptance by the drawee). For example, if a one month bill is drawn on 1st March, 2011 and is accepted by the drawee on 5th March, 2011; its maturity date is 8th April. In this case, the date of the bill starts from 5th March and not from 1st March. If the maturity date happens to be a gazetted holiday, then the bill is payable one day before. However, if the maturity date happens to be a casual holiday, then the bill is payable after one day.

3. At sight bill: In case of at sight bill, the due date of the bill is considered as and when the bill is presented for payment by the holder of the bill. In this case, there is no grace period. The bill becomes due whenever it is presented for payment.

Question 8:

What is meant by acceptance of a bill of exchange?

Answer:

A bill is drawn in favour of a person from whom the amount is due. In other words, a bill of exchange is drawn by the creditors on his/her debtors to make payment of specific amount, on a mentioned date. Generally, a bill is drawn by a seller to a purchaser. Purchaser accepts the bill for the amount due on account of the credit sales. The bill may be accepted for the amount due other than credit purchases, such as commission payable, salary outstanding, etc. A bill cannot come into existence without the acceptance of a debtor.

Question 9:

In exchange of the Notary service, Notary public charges fees, known as Noting charges. Notary public notes the following facts:

1. Date and amount of the bill

2. Reasons for dishonour

3. Amount of Noting charges

Question 10:

What is meant by renewal of a bill of exchange?

Answer:

When an acceptor of a bill does not have sufficient fund to meet the obligations of the bill on time, he/she requests the drawer for extension (of time) for payment. If the drawer agrees, then a new bill is drawn which is known as renewal of bill. Generally, a bill is renewed on the condition that the drawee has to pay interest for the extended period.

Question 14:

Give the meaning of rebate.

Answer:

If the drawee expresses his/her wish to pay the bill before the due date to the holder, and if the holder accepts his/her request, then on account of the early payment, the holder may give some discount. This discount is termed as rebate. In other words, rebate is a discount given by the holder to the drawee (or acceptor) for his/her request of early payment of the bill before the due date. It is an expense for the drawer and hence, is debited to the drawer’s books. On the other hand, as it is a gain for the acceptor of bill, so it is credited in the drawee’s books.

Question 1:

A bill of exchange must contain an unconditional promise to pay. Do you agree with a statement?

Answer:

According to Negotiable Instrument Act, 1981, “A bill of exchange is defined as an instrument in writing, containing an unconditional order, signed by the maker, directing a certain person to pay a certain sum of money only to, or to the order of, a certain person or to the bearer of the instrument.”

A bill of exchange contains an unconditional promise to pay a certain sum of money on an agreed date to the drawer or the bearer by the drawee of the bill.

An unconditional order to pay: It is one of the important characteristic of a negotiable instrument. Unconditional order implies no condition should be attached by the acceptor regarding the payment. The conditions like, payment of bill (only in case of profit on sales), payment of bill (only if the prices of goods increase), etc. should not be attached with the bill. Moreover, the language of the bill should not be ambiguous.

Question 3:

Explain briefly the procedure of calculating the date of maturity of a bill of exchange? Give example.

Answer:

The procedure to calculate the date of maturity of a bill of exchange is given below.

1. Ascertain the date on which the bill will be honoured.

2. Add three days of grace to the above date.

For example, a bill with maturity period of one month is drawn on 1st July and due date is 1st September. Then add 3 days of grace and payment will be made on 4th September.

Days of grace depend on the following situations:

1. Declared holidays: If the payment day happens to be a national holiday or Sunday, then the preceding day becomes the payment day.

For example,

  1. If a bill is drawn on 12th July and its due date is 12th August, then after adding 3 days of grace the maturity day is 15th August. However, as 15th August is a national holiday; so, 14th August becomes the payment day.

  2. If a bill is drawn on 1st May and the maturity period is of one month, then the due date is 1st June. After adding 3 days of grace, the payment date becomes 4th June. However, if 4th June happens to be a Sunday, then the payment will be made on 3rd June.

2. Undeclared holidays: If the payment day happens to be an emergency holiday, then the succeeding day becomes the payment day. For example, if a bill is drawn on 1st May and is payable after 15 days, then, after adding 3 days of grace period, the due date becomes 18th May. However, if a national strike is declared on 18th May, then 19th May becomes the due date of the bill.

Question 5:

Briefly explain the purpose and benefits of retiring a bill of exchange to the debtor and the creditor.

Answer:

When a holder receives the amount of a bill before the maturity date on request of the acceptor, it is called retirement of the bill of exchange. Holder of the bill may give discount for such earlier payment. This discount is termed as ‘rebate’.

Rebate is given by the holder to the acceptor of the bill on account of payment before the due date. Rebate is a loss for the holder of the bill; so, it is debited in the books of the holder when payment is received.
