Default Pay your debt in one payment?

Is it good for your credit score to pay you debt in full in one payment? Can you do that and is it advisable?

This will depend on many things, one of which is the type of loan you have. Some loan contracts will allow early pre-payment and some won't. For example if you have a mortgage, usually you have a clause in your mortgage contract defining penalties for early mortgage repayment.

I think Canadian is right. You have to check the terms of your contact. If you can I think it is always better to pay it off as fast as you can to avoid interest.
