Demand Deposit Terms
On 1 July 2022 we have merged Revolut Payments UAB to Revolut Bank UAB. This version of our terms applied from 1 July 2022. If you would like to see the terms that applied until 1 July 2022, please click here.
1. Why this information is important
This document sets out the terms and conditions for your Demand Deposit Account and its related services. It also sets out other important things that you need to know.
- you, the Demand Deposit Account holder; and
- us, Revolut Bank UAB (Revolut Bank).
We call this agreement the Demand Deposit Terms. This agreement is indefinite. It means that it is valid until you or we end it.
These Demand Deposit Terms are entered into by means of distance communication.
You agree that these Demand Deposit Terms and any other communications between us, will be in English. We will try our best to respond to you in your preferred language, but we reserve the right to respond in English.
Revolut Bank is a bank incorporated and licensed in the Republic of Lithuania with company number 304580906 and authorisation code LB002119 and whose registered office is at Konstitucijos ave. 21B, 08130 Vilnius, the Republic of Lithuania. We are licensed and regulated by the Bank of Lithuania and the European Central Bank as a credit institution. You can see our license on the Bank of Lithuania website here and our incorporation and company documents on the Lithuanian Register of Legal Entities website here.
2. Can I open a Demand Deposit Account?
By accepting these Demand Deposit Terms, you confirm that:
- you have received by email, read and understood these Demand Deposit Terms;
- you have received by email, read and understood the standard information for deposit insurance of the State Company Deposit and Investment Insurance (VĮ "Indėlių ir investicijų draudimas") which is also available here;
- you have provided correct and accurate contact information (including an email address that you check regularly) during the onboarding process.
When you ask us to open a Demand Deposit Account, we or our representatives will ask for information about you and where the money you will deposit into your Demand Deposit Account comes from. We do this for a number of reasons, including to check your credit score and identity, and to meet our legal and regulatory requirements. When we have the information we need, we will open your Demand Deposit Account, and you can make a deposit into it. If you have already provided this information to one of our group entities when opening a current account, you acknowledge and agree that we may use and rely on that information for this purpose.
We can only provide services to you once you have passed our internal checks, and not before. We will notify you via the Revolut app once this has happened and will let you know once your Demand Deposit Account is opened.
You can see your Demand Deposit Account details in the account statement. Keep in mind that these bank details cannot be used for direct payments, and you can only place your deposit in the way described in these Demand Deposit Terms. If you use these details for payment transactions, the transactions won’t be executed.
If any of your personal details change, you must notify us immediately.
When we refer to "email" we mean the email you provided to us during the onboarding process (unless you updated your email afterwards). It's important that you provide your primary email address and check it regularly. Should your email address change or should you have any trouble receiving or opening emails from us, you must notify us immediately. Otherwise, you agree that if an email has been delivered to your email address, you should have read it, even if you failed to do so for whatever reason.
3. My 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 only way you can put money into, or take money out from, your Demand Deposit Account is by having a current account with us in the way described in these Demand Deposit Terms.
If you have agreed to these Demand Deposit Terms prior to 1 July 2022 and have a positive balance on your Demand Deposit Account on 1 July 2022, you agree and authorise us to transfer your balance from the Demand Deposit Account to your current account held with us on or around 1 July 2022. You will be able to make deposits to and from your Demand Deposit Account after this day as described in these Terms.
4. How to make a deposit into my Demand Deposit Account
Add money at any time
Deposits to your Demand Deposit Account can only be made by transferring funds from your current account held with us 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.
How soon will money be credited?
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.
5. Will you pay any interest on the Deposit held in my 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.
6. How to make a withdrawal from my Demand Deposit Account?
We will return money to you from the Demand Deposit Account at your request. Withdrawal requests can be made by you at any time and in any amounts not exceeding the available balance. When you withdraw the money from your Demand Deposit Account, we will transfer the funds to your current account held with us.
7. How is my money protected?
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.
For example, if you're adding/transferring money to/from your Demand Deposit Account not on a business day your money won't be protected by the Deposit Insurance Scheme until it reaches your Demand Deposit Account or deposit account opened within another credit institution which is a participant of the Deposit Insurance Scheme. Nevertheless, your money will be protected in other ways as prescribed by laws.
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 which are available here. There are no additional mechanisms (we call them “guarantee funds”) under these Demand Deposit Terms that protect your money in your Demand Deposit Account.
8. Keeping your security details safe
We do everything we can to keep your money safe. We ask you to do the same by keeping your security details safe. This means you should make sure they are kept secure, not accessible to other people, and not shared with anyone else.
Sometimes it's easy to forget to take the steps you should take to keep your money safe. Here are a couple of tips:
- make sure you don’t leave the Revolut app open on an unlocked device; and
- keep your mobile device and your email account secure and don't let other people use them.
Contact us through the Revolut app as soon as possible if your security details could be used without your permission.
You can contact us in the following ways
Tell us about lost or stolen or security details:
- Send us a message through chat on the Revolut app.
- Email us at email@example.com.
- Call us to block a lost or stolen card on +370 5 214 3608 (your telecommunication service provider’s standard rates apply)
Our website: www.revolut.com
9. Are there any restrictions on using the Revolut app?
Please act reasonably and responsibly when using the Revolut app.
The Revolut app must not be used (directly or indirectly) as follows:
- for illegal purposes (for example, committing fraud);
- in a way that might harm our ability to provide our services;
- to control or use a Demand Deposit Account that's not yours;
- to allow anyone else to have access to or use Demand Deposit Account or the Revolut app; or
- for business purposes.
Please also act in a respectful way towards us and our support staff – we're here to help you.
10. When we might prevent you from using your Demand Deposit Account
The safety of your money is important to us, therefore we can prevent you from using your Demand Deposit Account. For example, we will deny the repayment of any deposit and will not credit any additional deposit if we're reasonably concerned about its security or that it might be used fraudulently or without your permission.
We might also have to prevent you from using your Demand Deposit Account to meet our legal obligations arising from the laws of the Republic of Lithuania.
We'll tell you through the Revolut app before, or as soon as possible after, we have limited the use of your Demand Deposit Account. We'll also let you know why we've done it (unless it would reduce your or our security or it would be unlawful). We will let you use your Demand Deposit Account normally as soon as the reasons for the limit no longer exist.
11. When could you suspend or close my Demand Deposit Account?
We may close or suspend your Demand Deposit Account immediately (including the access to the services provided by the other Revolut entities) and end your access to the Revolut app, in exceptional circumstances. Exceptional circumstances include the following:
- if we have good reason to suspect that you are behaving fraudulently or otherwise criminally;
- if you've broken these Demand Deposit Terms in a serious or persistent way and you haven't put the matter right within a reasonable time of us asking you to;
- if we have information that your use of the Revolut app is harmful to us or our software, systems or hardware, or our reputation or goodwill;
- if you've been declared bankrupt;
- if you die or a declaratory judgement of your death is pronounced; or
- if we have to do so under any law, regulation, court order or ombudsman's instructions.
We may also close your Demand Deposit Account in case we change our business model and we no longer offer a demand deposit product. If we do so, we will inform you in advance of closing your Demand Deposit Account in accordance with these terms and conditions.
Upon closing your Demand Deposit Account, we will return any remaining balance in your Demand Deposit Account to your current account held with us. We will consider that you gave us consent and authorised us to execute this transaction. We may allow you to make a withdrawal directly from your Demand Deposit Account to your current account as well.
12. Are we responsible if something goes wrong with your Demand Deposit Account or the Revolut app?
We'll do as much as reasonably possible to make sure that our services are not interrupted and are accessible at a reasonable speed. However, we can't promise that this will always be the case or that the services will be free from faults. We also rely on some third parties to provide services to you, which can disrupt our services. We'll always do our best to solve any problems with our services, no matter what the cause.
We will not be responsible for losses resulting from us failing to meet our obligations to timely credit into your Demand Deposit Account incoming money or debit from your Demand Deposit Account money being withdrawn because:
- of a legal or regulatory requirement; or
- unforeseeable events outside our control, which were unavoidable at the time;
- of criminal or any other illegal actions of third parties resulting in damage to you or any other person (unless specified in these terms and conditions directly); or
- of the blocking of your Demand Deposit Account when implementing legal requirements, including those in relation to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing.
We will only be responsible for foreseeable losses
If we break this agreement, we will be responsible for any loss that we could have foreseen at the time we entered into the agreement, also for the loss that results from our fraud or gross negligence.
We won't be responsible to you for any of the following, whether direct or indirect, that arises in connection with this agreement:
- loss of income or profit;
- loss of goodwill or damage to your reputation;
- loss of business contracts or opportunities;
- loss of anticipated savings; or
- consequential loss.
Nothing in this agreement removes or limits our liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or from fraud or fraudulent claims and statements.
13. Our right to withdraw money from your Demand Deposit Account in exceptional cases
We have a right to withdraw money from your Demand Deposit Account without your instruction in the following cases:
- if money was transferred to your Demand Deposit Account without any legal basis (i.e. due to fraud, mistakes or technical errors);
- when we, as a service provider, are required by applicable laws, to withhold and pay to competent authorities taxes that apply to you in your capacity as a depositor; or
- in other cases, as established by Lithuanian laws and other applicable legislation.
14. When you might be responsible for our losses?
You may be responsible to us for certain losses.
If you have broken this agreement and this has caused us to suffer a loss, the following will apply::
- you will be responsible for any foreseeable losses we suffer as a result of your action (we will try to keep the losses to a minimum); and
- you will also be responsible for any reasonable legal costs that arise as a result of our losses.
15. How do I get information about transactions for my Demand Deposit Account?
You can check all Demand Deposit Account inflows and outflows through the Revolut app. We will store your Demand Deposit Account information while you are a customer and for 8 years after you close your Demand Deposit Account. If you need to keep a copy of the information after then, you will need to download it. You can download information from the Revolut app while you are a customer or, if your Demand Deposit Account is closed, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with such information.
You will receive a notification to your mobile device each time a deposit is placed into or withdrawn out of your Demand Deposit Account. You can turn off these notifications, through the Revolut app or in your device's settings, at any time. If you turn off notifications, you should regularly check your Demand Deposit Account information on the Revolut app. It's important that you know what amounts go into and out of your Demand Deposit Account, so we recommend that you do not turn off notifications.
Communicating with you
We'll communicate with you through the Revolut app. Other Revolut group entities may also communicate with you via the Revolut app if this is agreed with you and that entity.
This is how we will provide Demand Deposit Account information and tell you about any fraud, or suspected fraud, relating to your Demand Deposit Account. It is also how we will tell you if there is a security threat to your Demand Deposit Account. Make sure you regularly check the Revolut app for this information.
To help keep your Demand Deposit Account safe, download the latest software for your mobile device and the latest version of the Revolut app as soon as they are available.
We may also communicate with you by text message (SMS) or email, so you should regularly check your text messages and email account.
Your consents, approvals, acceptances and other statements given using the Revolut app shall have the same legal validity as your signature on a written document. Your agreements concluded with us via the Revolut app shall be deemed to be written agreements concluded between you and us.

We'll only change the agreement for the following reasons:
- if we think it will make it easier to understand or more helpful to you;
- to reflect the way our business is run, particularly if the change is needed because of a change in the way any financial system or technology is provided;

You retain your right to close your Demand Deposit Account and so end this agreement, at any time and free of charge by letting us know, even after the 14 days period has passed. You can do this through the Revolut app or by emailing us at email@example.com.
What happens if my current account is closed?
Immediately after your Demand Deposit Account is closed, we will return any remaining balance to your current account held with us.
Your current account with us and your Demand Deposit Account are different accounts and it is impossible to subscribe for a Demand Deposit Account with us without subscribing for a current account. Closing one will not automatically close the other.
If your current account is closed, you will not be able to return deposits from your Demand Deposit Account to your current account. 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.

Our contract with you
Only you and we have any rights under the agreement.
The agreement is personal to you and you cannot transfer any rights or obligations under it to anyone else, without our consent.
Our right to transfer and assign
You agree and permit us to merge, reorganize, spin-off, transform or execute any other form of reorganization or restructuring of our company or business and/or transfer or assign all of our rights and obligations under these Demand Deposit Terms to any third party.
We will only transfer any of your and our rights or obligations under these Demand Deposit Terms if this won't have a significant negative effect on your rights under these Demand Deposit Terms or we need to do so to keep to any legal or regulatory requirement, or it is done as a result of implementation of reorganization (or a similar process). You will be able to terminate the Demand Deposit Account upon notification about the assignment, merger, reorganisation or any other similar notification.
