1.AMERIA DEPOSIT is a standard deposit where the depositors (or a third party) may not add to or withdraw amounts from the deposit account throughout the term of the deposit agreement. 

 2.If the depositor terminates the deposit agreement before the due date, the bank shall recalculate the accrued interest at the rate applicable to the selected deposit for the actual number of days elapsed as of the termination date. Partial termination of the deposit is not allowed. If the deposit is requested back within a 30-day period after the start date, interest is recalculated at an annual rate of 0.1%. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable. 

3.The client may top up the deposited amount throughout the term except the last 3 months. Maximum allowed increase is 50% of initial deposit amount. If the deposit with a top-up option is renewed automatically, it will be considered a new deposit, and after the renewal the top-up restrictions shall apply in the same manner as they would apply to a new deposit with the same terms. Funds transferred by third parties can be deposited in the name of the depositor provided the required details of deposit account are specified. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable.

 4.The client can partially withdraw the deposited amount throughout the term except the first 3 months. Maximum allowed withdrawal is 30% of initial deposit amount. Interest accrued to the repaid amount shall not be recalculated. If you withdraw a part of the deposit amount, we will provide you a deposit account statement. You will be required to confirm the receipt of the statement and actual decrease of the deposited amount with your signature. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable. 5The client may increase the deposit by up to AMD 40 million regardless of initially deposited amount except the last 3 months. If the deposit with an accumulation option is renewed automatically, it will be considered a new deposit, and after the renewal the top-up restrictions shall apply in the same manner as they would apply to a new deposit. Funds transferred by third parties can be deposited in the name of the depositor provided the required details of deposit account are specified. Top up, partial withdrawal and termination options are not applicable to cumulative deposits. Each client can have only one active deposit with accumulation option. 6+0.25% interest rate is applied for new AMD time deposits opened via Internet/Mobile Bank (not applicable to the Premium/Partner client deposits if the deposit term is 181 days and more)

ATTENTION!

THE INTEREST IS ACCRUED TO THE DEPOSIT AMOUNT AT THE NOMINAL INTEREST RATE. THE ANNUAL PERCENTAGE YIELD SHOWS THE INCOME YOU CAN EARN IF YOU MAKE THE MANDATORY DEPOSIT PAYMENTS AND RECEIVE THE ACCRUED INTEREST WITH THE SELECTED FREQUENCY. 

ANNUAL PERCENTAGE YIELD IS CALCULATED BY THE FOLLOWING FORMULA:

9. The Bank calculates interest using 365 as denominator.

11. The interest is taxable at 10% pursuant to the tax legislation of Republic of Armenia.

12. The interest may be paid according to the one of the following schemes as defined in the deposit agreement: 

7.1. Monthly payment: interest is credited to the depositor’s account on monthly basis from the deposit start date. Before payment of interest we will withhold the income tax. 

7.2. Monthly capitalization of interest: net interest (after tax) is accrued to the deposit principal every month to the start date of the deposit or on the first banking day after that. Interest for each subsequent period is accrued to the sum of the previous month’s interest and the principal. 

7.3. Quarterly payment: interest is credited to the depositor’s bank account on quarterly basis on the last day of the quarter. Before payment of interest we will withhold the income tax. 

7.4. Quarterly capitalization of interest: net interest (after tax) is accrued to the deposit principal once a quarter to the start date of the deposit or on the first banking day after that. Interest for each subsequent period is accrued to the sum of the previous month’s interest and the principal.

7.5. Annual payment: interest is accrued from the deposit start date and is credited to the depositor’s account on annual basis on the last day of the year. Before payment of interest we will withhold the income tax. 

7.6. Annual capitalization of interest: net interest (after tax) is accrued to the deposit principal once a year to the start date of the deposit or on the first banking day after that. Interest for each subsequent period is accrued to the sum of the previous month’s interest and the principal.

14. The deposit application-agreement may be extended in cases and manner provided for thereby and Terms and Conditions of Deposits for Individuals. 

15. We will repay the deposit, whether in whole or in part, forthwith upon request of the depositor. If the client terminates the deposit before the due date, we will recalculate and repay the amount based on the depositor’s application. In this case, we will pay interest at a 0.1% annual interest rate instead of the rate defined by the deposit agreement. Any interest already paid that should have been charged back after recalculation shall be charged to the principal amount of deposit after deduction of interest calculated at 0.1% annual interest rate. This clause is applicable unless otherwise defined by deposit terms and/or deposit agreement.  

16. If the depositor does not request to return the deposit amount upon the expiry of the deposit, then based on the option selected by the depositor in the application-agreement either (i) the agreement is prolonged according to the terms specified therein and the rates effective in the bank at that moment, or (ii) the deposit is transferred to the depositor’s bank account subject to applicable rates and fees.

17. In case of the depositor’s decease, accrual of interest will continue until expiry of deposit agreement, after which we will transfer the deposit and accrued interest to the depositor’s account. In this case, these amounts will be transferred to the heirs of the depositor upon submission of properly perfected and executed documents on property rights testifying to the fact of inheritance.

Note, that 

all AMD deposits with the Bank are considered one AMD deposit.

all foreign currency deposits with the Bank are considered one foreign currency deposit.

1.AMERIA DEPOSIT is a standard deposit where the depositors (or a third party) may not add to or withdraw amounts from the deposit account throughout the term of the deposit agreement. 

 2.If the depositor terminates the deposit agreement before the due date, the bank shall recalculate the accrued interest at the rate applicable to the selected deposit for the actual number of days elapsed as of the termination date. Partial termination of the deposit is not allowed. If the deposit is requested back within a 30-day period after the start date, interest is recalculated at an annual rate of 0.1%. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable. 

3.The client may top up the deposited amount throughout the term except the last 3 months. Maximum allowed increase is 30% of initial deposit amount. If the deposit with a top-up option is renewed automatically, it will be considered a new deposit, and after the renewal the top-up restrictions shall apply in the same manner as they would apply to a new deposit with the same terms. Funds transferred by third parties can be deposited in the name of the depositor provided the required details of deposit account are specified. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable.

 4.The client can partially withdraw the deposited amount throughout the term except the first 3 months. Maximum allowed withdrawal is 30% of initial deposit amount. Interest accrued to the repaid amount shall not be recalculated. If you withdraw a part of the deposit amount, we will provide you a deposit account statement. You will be required to confirm the receipt of the statement and actual decrease of the deposited amount with your signature. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable.


ATTENTION!

THE INTEREST IS ACCRUED TO THE DEPOSIT AMOUNT AT THE NOMINAL INTEREST RATE. THE ANNUAL PERCENTAGE YIELD SHOWS THE INCOME YOU CAN EARN IF YOU MAKE THE MANDATORY DEPOSIT PAYMENTS AND RECEIVE THE ACCRUED INTEREST WITH THE SELECTED FREQUENCY. 

ANNUAL PERCENTAGE YIELD IS CALCULATED BY THE FOLLOWING FORMULA:

A      is the initial amount attracted or provided

Dn     is the period of receiving the nth cash flows expressed in the days elapsed from the day of the first flow (the day of first flow being the day of attracting or issuing the amounts)

Where there is X in any cell of the table, the respective condition is not applicable to that deposit type.

In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable. 

4.The client can partially withdraw the deposited amount throughout the term except the first 3 months. Maximum allowed withdrawal is 30% of initial deposit amount. Interest accrued to the repaid amount shall not be recalculated.

If you withdraw a part of the deposit amount, we will provide you a deposit account statement. You will be required to confirm the receipt of the statement and actual decrease of the deposited amount with your signature.

In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable.

5.The client may increase the deposit by up to AMD 40 million regardless of initially deposited amount except the last 3 months. If the deposit with an accumulation option is renewed automatically, it will be considered a new deposit, and after the renewal the top-up restrictions shall apply in the same manner as they would apply to a new deposit. 

Funds transferred by third parties can be deposited in the name of the depositor provided the required details of deposit account are specified.

7.4. Quarterly capitalization of interest: net interest (after tax) is accrued to the deposit principal once a quarter to the start date of the deposit or on the first banking day after that.

In this case, we will pay interest at a 0.1% annual interest rate instead of the rate defined by the deposit agreement. Any interest already paid that should have been charged back after recalculation shall be charged to the principal amount of deposit after deduction of interest calculated at 0.1% annual interest rate. This clause is applicable unless otherwise defined by deposit terms and/or deposit agreement.  

16. If the depositor does not request to return the deposit amount upon the expiry of the deposit, then based on the option selected by the depositor in the application-agreement either (i) the agreement is prolonged according to the terms specified therein and the rates effective in the bank at that moment, or (ii) the deposit is transferred to the depositor’s bank account subject to applicable rates and fees.

1.AMERIA DEPOSIT is a standard deposit where the depositors (or a third party) may not add to or withdraw amounts from the deposit account throughout the term of the deposit agreement. 

 2.If the depositor terminates the deposit agreement before the due date, the bank shall recalculate the accrued interest at the rate applicable to the selected deposit for the actual number of days elapsed as of the termination date. Partial termination of the deposit is not allowed. If the deposit is requested back within a 30-day period after the start date, interest is recalculated at an annual rate of 0.1%. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable. 

3.The client may top up the deposited amount throughout the term except the last 3 months. Maximum allowed increase is 30% of initial deposit amount. If the deposit with a top-up option is renewed automatically, it will be considered a new deposit, and after the renewal the top-up restrictions shall apply in the same manner as they would apply to a new deposit with the same terms. Funds transferred by third parties can be deposited in the name of the depositor provided the required details of deposit account are specified. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable.

Interest accrued to the repaid amount shall not be recalculated. If you withdraw a part of the deposit amount, we will provide you a deposit account statement. You will be required to confirm the receipt of the statement and actual decrease of the deposited amount with your signature. In this case, the option of “payment of interest upfront at the beginning of the term” is not applicable.


ATTENTION!

THE INTEREST IS ACCRUED TO THE DEPOSIT AMOUNT AT THE NOMINAL INTEREST RATE. THE ANNUAL PERCENTAGE YIELD SHOWS THE INCOME YOU CAN EARN IF YOU MAKE THE MANDATORY DEPOSIT PAYMENTS AND RECEIVE THE ACCRUED INTEREST WITH THE SELECTED FREQUENCY.

5.The client may increase the deposit by up to AMD 40 million regardless of initially deposited amount except the last 3 months.
