What Business Standard Deposits are

Desposit accounts with a specific specific commitment period, upon maturity of which you can either terminate or renew your account. The deposit interest remains stable throughout the account term, while interest is paid upon maturity, along with the initial capital

Main features

  • Interest rate varies and is determined by the deposit amount and duration.

  • Interest payment is credited upon maturity (after the deduction of the current tax towards the State, presently determined at 15%)

  • The deposit amount may vary between €1.000 and > €1.000.000.

  • Time deposit maturity set anywhere between 30 and 365 days


  • In case you perform an early withdrawal of all or part of your deposit, you are subject to a penalty affecting the accrued interest, determined by the withdrawal amount and the days remaining until maturity; in any case, the original capital is not affected whatsoever

  • There is no option to carry out deposits to the account prior to maturity
