The assured may claim interest as from one month after the date on which notice of the casualty was sent to the insurer. If the insurer has to refund the assured's disbursements, interest accrues from the date of the disbursement. If the insurer is to indemnify the assured for loss of time, interest does not accrue until one month after expiry of the period for which the insurer is liable.
If the assured fails to provide information and documents as mentioned in Cl. 5-1, and the settlement as a result thereof is delayed, he may not claim interest for the resulting loss of time. The same applies if the assured unjustifiably rejects full or part settlement.
The rate of interest is six month CIBOR, NIBOR or STIBOR + 2 % for insurance contracts in which the sum insured is stated in Danish Kroner, Norwegian Kroner or Swedish Kronor respectively, and otherwise six month LIBOR + 2 %. Interest is determined as at January 1 of the year the insurance contract comes into effect at the average rate for the last two months of the preceding year.
After the due date, cf. Cl. 5-6, interest on overdue payments accrues according to the rate stated in sub-clause 3 + 2 %.
