New fee on the credit balances in EUR current accounts

29 April, 2021

Dear Customers,


RCB Bank Ltd (the “Bank”) would like to inform you that, given the current market conditions and as a result of the prevailing negative interest rates in Euro, the Bank has no option but to align with most local and European Banks and introduce charges on legal persons maintaining EUR current accounts with the Bank.

As a result, the Bank will proceed with implementing a Liquidity Fee (the “Fee”) of 0,50% p.a. on positive balances on current accounts denominated in Euro, starting from the 1st of July 2021. The Fee will be calculated on the monthly average accumulated credit balances of the accounts and will be charged on a monthly basis. The first €100.000 of the monthly average accumulated credit balance in all EUR current accounts of each customer will not be charged.

The following categories of customers will be exempted from the Fee:
1. Customers with lending facilities like loans, overdraft limits, L/G and L/C limits, REPO limits, guarantors and collateral providers under such facilities.
2. Customers using the Acquiring services of the Bank (POS terminals, eCommerce, SafePayLink, etc.).
3. Customers using the brokerage and custody services of the Bank.

Please note that the calculations of the Fee, as well as the exemptions, will be applied on an individual legal person basis, not on a group basis.


Should your account be affected by the Fee you have the option to transfer funds to either “Fixed Term Deposit” or place funds on “Notice account”, which are not subject to the Fee.

You have the right to terminate your account(s) with the Bank without incurring any charges until 29/06/2021. If by that date you have not terminated your account(s), we will assume you have accepted the Fee.
