According to the law "On Personal Income Tax", which came into force 1 January 2011, all private individual income from the capital is applied with tax (including the interest income gained from the accumulation in Savings Account). Thus we wish to explain the process of tax collection to our existing and potential customers.

As stipulated in the law "On Personal Income Tax" the state charges tax in the amount of 10% from the gained interest profit in Savings Account. This means that the tax is not collected from the whole deposit amount but only from the gained profit.

As stipulated in the law, from 1 January 2011, tax on deposit interest shall be paid on the day when the income is received, respectively at the moment when interest income is disbursed. The responsible body for collecting the tax is the one paying out the income, in this situation – the bank. This means that SEB bank will automatically withhold tax (make the tax payment instead of you) at the time when interest is paid, which according to the contract takes place quarterly.
