DEMAND DEPOSIT ACCOUNT FEATURES AND RISKS
What is a Demand Deposit Account?
A demand deposit account is an account opened with a depositor in a credit institution (bank) under a demand deposit agreement.
Your Demand Deposit Account
When you put money as a deposit into your Demand Deposit Account, we accept the money, hold it for you, and undertake to return it to you upon your request. The Demand Deposit Agreement is indefinite. It means that it is valid until you or we end it.
Revolut Bank UAB is not authorised to, and so cannot, provide payment services or issue e-money. This means that we can only accept money into, and return money from, your Demand Deposit Account with you directly in the way described in the Demand Deposit Terms.
Money cannot be paid directly into or out of your Demand Deposit Account in any other way.
The only way you can put money into, or take money out from, your Demand Deposit Account is by having an e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB and making payments using it in the way described in the Demand Deposit Terms.
How to make a deposit into my Demand Deposit Account
Deposits to your Demand Deposit Account can only be made by transferring funds via your e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB to your Demand Deposit Account.
These deposits can be made at any time and in any currency. The amount of money you can add to your Demand Deposit Account and the frequency of your additions is not limited.
Your deposit will be credited to your Demand Deposit Account as soon as possible after it arrives with us and in any case no later than on the next business day. A "business day" is any day other than a Sunday, Saturday or a public holiday in the Republic of Lithuania.
Interest rate on the Demand Deposit Account
We will pay interest on the balance of your Demand Deposit Account at the end of each business day. Interest will be calculated at a yearly rate of 0%. However, since the rate is 0%, no interest will be payable.
How to withdraw money from my Demand Deposit Account
Revolut will return money to the Customer from the Demand Deposit Account at the Customer request. Withdrawal requests can be made by the Customer at any time and in any amounts not exceeding the available balance. For more information please refer to Demand Deposit Terms.
What are the risks associated with my Demand Deposit Account?
The Demand Deposit Account is a substantially safe product. The main risk is the counterparty risk, i.e. the eventuality that the bank is unable to reimburse the customer, in whole or in part, the sums deposited.
Nevertheless, your money is protected once it reaches your Demand Deposit Account or deposit account opened within another credit institution which is a participant of the Deposit Insurance Scheme.
Your money will be credited to your Demand Deposit Account as soon as possible after it arrives with us and in any case no later than on the next business day.
The money in your Demand Deposit Account is protected by Lithuanian deposit insurance administered by the State Company Deposit and Investment Insurance (VĮ "Indėlių ir investicijų draudimas") in accordance with the conditions established by the Law on Insurance of Deposits and Liabilities to Investors of the Republic of Lithuania.
There are no additional mechanisms (we call them “guarantee funds”) under these Demand Deposit Terms that protect your money in your Demand Deposit Account.
Other potential risks which you should take into proper consideration:
- the unfavorable change in economic conditions where contractually required;
- the loss or theft of identification data and keywords for accessing your Revolut account through the App, reduced to a minimum if you keep your security details safe. Please refer to Section 8 of Demand Deposit Terms for more details;
- the suspension or interruption of the service for technical or force majeure reasons;
- malfunctioning of IT systems.
Revolut Bank UAB does not charge any fees that apply to you for and in relation to Revolut Bank UAB services under this agreement. This also means that you will not pay any fees for us in relation to using the Revolut App or any other means of distance communication for your Demand Deposit Account. Fees amounts reported are valid until further notice and according to the terms of the law.
You may be responsible for paying taxes or costs that apply to the deposit that you hold in your Demand Deposit Account and that we are not responsible for collecting from you, except where that is required by law.
DEMAND DEPOSIT ACCOUNT CLOSURE AND SUSPENSION
If you want to know more information when we can suspend or close your account please refer to Section 11 of Demand Deposit Terms.
CLIENT WITHDRAWAL FROM THE AGREEMENT
If you want to know more information about how to withdraw from the demand deposit agreement please refer to Section 21 of Demand Deposit Terms.
DEMAND DEPOSIT ACCOUNT CLOSURE
You can close your Demand Deposit Account, and so end the agreement, at any time by letting us know. You can do this through the Revolut app or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to know more information about how to close the demand deposit account please refer to Section 21 of Demand Deposit Terms.
Immediately after your Demand Deposit Account is closed, we will return any remaining balance to your e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB.
Your e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB and your Demand Deposit Account with Revolut Bank UAB are different accounts and it is not possible to subscribe for a Demand Deposit Account with Revolut Bank UAB without subscribing for your e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB.
Closing one will not automatically close the other.
However, you need to have both for us to be able to offer our Demand Deposit Account services to you effectively.
If your e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB is closed or Revolut Payments UAB closes its e-money account business, you will not be able to return deposits from your Demand Deposit Account with Revolut Bank UAB to your e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB.
This means that, although you can continue to use your Demand Deposit Account, its functionality will be limited to keeping your money and returning it to you on your request as described in Section 6 of Demand Deposit Terms.
The same consequences as described above will occur should you end your arrangements with Revolut Payments UAB regarding the transfer of funds from your e-money account with Revolut Payments UAB to your Demand Deposit Account with Revolut Bank UAB, but will keep your e-money account opened.
