Balance forward

A balance forward is the dollar amount that carries forward from one billing period to the next when you do not pay your credit card bill in full each month. Interest and other finance charges are calculated based on your balance forward, or in other words your unpaid balance. Wise management of a credit card account includes avoiding having balances that carry forward.
