Laws of Malaysia ACT 2 An instrument expressed to be payable on a contingency is not a bill, and the happening of the event does not cure the defect. Where a bill expressed to be payable at a fixed period after date is issued undated, or where the acceptance of a bill payable at a fixed period after sight is undated, any holder may insert therein the true date of issue or acceptance, and the bill shall be payable accordingly: Provided that– a where the holder in good faith and by mistake inserts a wrong date; and b in every case where a wrong date is inserted, if the bill subsequently comes into the hands of a holder in due course, the bill shall not be avoided thereby, but shall operate and be payable as if the date so inserted had been the true date.


Where a bill is not payable on demand the day on which it falls due is determined as follows: Provided that– i when the last day of grace falls on a Sunday, public holiday or bank holiday; Bills of Exchange 15 ii when the last day of grace of a bill drawn payable in a foreign currency falls on a Saturday, Sunday, public holiday or bank holiday, the bill shall be due and payable on the next succeeding business day; b where a bill is payable at a fixed period after date, after sight, or after the happening of a specified event, the time of payment is determined by excluding the day from which the time is to begin to run and by including the day of payment; c where a bill is payable at a fixed period after sight, the time begins to run from the date of the acceptance if the bill be accepted, and from the date of noting or protest if the bill be noted or protested for non-acceptance, or for non-delivery; d the term “month” in a bill means calendar month.
