Interest rate

The interest rate set for a Savings Account is 0.10% gross per year (rate established on 2016-10-01).

Interest is subject to income tax and social security contributions.

Method of interest calculation and posting dates

Interest is calculated using the projected interest and backdated interest methods. Withdrawals made before the 31st of December of the current year produce backdated interest that is subtracted from any projected interest that may be calculated for the year.

Deposits accrue interest as of the first day of the half-month that follows the deposit or transfer (the 16th of that month or the 1st of the following month). The amounts withdrawn stop accruing interest as of the first day of the half-month during which the withdrawal was made (either the 1st or the 16th).

In order to avoid losing a single day of interest, we advise that you make your deposits before the 16th or the 1st of the month and your withdrawals after the 15th or after the 30th.


There is no limit to the amount that may be held in the Savings Account.


Initial deposit: Minimum €10.
Subsequent deposits: deposits or automatic transfers, with a minimum of €10 per transaction.


Make withdrawals at your discretion, with the minimum of €10 per transaction. The account must always maintain a minimum balance of €10.


The account has no contractual term.
