What conditions must I meet to open a Currency Account?

  • You can contract a currency current account if you are an individual who is resident or non-resident in Spain.
  • The currency current account has absolute liquidity.
  • The currency current account has an annual maintenance fee of €45, paid every six months.
  • This account yields 0% annual nominal interest (-0.90% AER / -1.50% AER)

What are the fees for the Currency Account?

  • Annual nominal interest rate of 0% (0.90% AER / 1.50% AER) with an account maintenance fee of €45.00/year (€22.50/half-year), which will lead to variations in the AER as a result of variations in the average balance of the account. Here are two examples: NIR 0% (AER 0.90%) calculated for a daily balance of €5,000 kept for one year, without any interest payment and with a maintenance fee for the stated amount. NIR 0% (AER 1.50%) calculated for a daily balance of €3,000 kept for one year, without any interest payment and with a maintenance fee for the stated amount. Always bear in mind the foreign exchange rate risk when you open a non-euro current account.

The currency current account gives you a cheque book. You can withdraw funds using it, or through any of our branches.
