Where to open
You can open your Online Deposit account remotely by submitting an application through BACB’s website: https://deposit.bacb.bg and if you already have an Online Deposit – through BACB online banking platform, after you have registered as a Depositor.
The Online Deposit accrues interest on the maturity date or on the date of its preterm termination. Interest is capitalized to the deposit’s principal.
The depositor can access their Online Deposits and manage them via the BACB online banking platform. Upon identification one can also manage their deposits at our counters in the BACB branches.
Deposit / Withdraw funds
Any transactions with the Online Deposit during its term will be considered violation of the terms and conditions and will accrue interest at the BACB rate for preterm deposit termination.
Your Online Deposit is automatically renewed into a Standard fixed-term deposit with the same currency and for the same period. The interest rate applicable for standard deposits as of the date of the renewal is applied. You as a Depositor may opt for transformation of the deposit into another type of deposit by personally visiting а BACB branch or sending a written instruction to close the deposit via the online banking platform.
Preterm deposit termination
IIn case of preterm termination of the Online Deposit, the interest rate valid for current accounts in the same currency is applied and the accrual depends on the number of days the deposit has been with BACB. In case the Depositor decides to terminate their Online Deposit and let funds be transferred back, they shall send a written instruction via the online banking platform.
Incoming transfers for replenishing the deposit are commission free. In case of deposit termination with transfer of funds to another bank, the fees and commissions shall be withheld from the transfer amount. If the transfer is made in a currency other than BGN, it shall be processed with a standard value date.
