Following the signals of the National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia, which lowered the interest rate on the treasury bills, Komercijalna Banka AD Skopje decided for the third time this year to lower the loan and deposit interest rates, as follows:
- Decrease to 1 percentage point of the interest rates for legal entities for all existing denar loans approved as from 01.05.2009, as well as all newly approved loans to legal entities. The interest rates on the existing loans to legal entities approved up to the stated date shall be decreased for 0.5 percentage points as for the loans secured by a first rank mortgage of minimum 120%, which were decreased at the beginning of the year.
This decrease shall be applied as from 01.05.2010.
- Decrease of the interest rates on loans to individuals from 0.5 to 1 percentage point, depending on the type of the credit product, as follows: consumer loans approved after 16.05.2009 for 0.5 percentage points, denar housing and mortgage loans without specified purposes for 0.5 percentage points, car loans secured by guarantors or pledge of vehicle for 0.5 percentage points, car loans secured by mortgage on real estate for 1 percentage point and tourist loans for 1 percentage point.
This decrease shall be applied as from 16.05.2010.
As from 01.05.2010 the Bank shall lower interest rates on the balance on current accounts for 0.2 percentage points, on the denar demand savings deposits for 0.3 percentage points, on the time deposits from 0.7 to 1.2 percentage points, on the FX demand savings deposits in EUR for 0.2 percentage points and on the FX time savings deposits in EUR from 0.1 to 0.3 percentage points. The interest rates on time deposits of legal entities shall be lowered accordingly.
Banks would be more stimulated to decrease the interest rates on loans if the National Bank of the Republic of Macedonia decreased the rate of the mandatory reserve.
