Until now, the fee for the deposit of metallic coins has been, for example, for the delivery of 10,000 euros of metallic money to commercial banks, the business has been banned from 370 to 500 euros.

The Central Bank of Kosovo has announced that they have removed the fee for the deposit of metal coins.

According to their announcement, businesses are no longer forced to pay this fee, considering that it had seriously damaged them.

"For several years now, the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce and Industry has continuously requested and held meetings and ongoing activities, demanding that the fees for metallic currencies for businesses that have been banned are 3.7%, 5%, 8% and the amount delivered during the deposit of metallic coins from their circulation, should be removed because this fee has seriously damaged the businesses that operate with metallic coins", it was stated in the announcement of the CBK.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Kosovo has also made such an announcement, indicating that the deposit of metal coins has been removed.

"In the official response received from the Central Bank of Kosovo addressed to the ICT, it is clarified that now businesses are not forced to pay such a fee when depositing metal coins, while at the request of the CBK and with prior agreement with the Heads of Commercial Banks the same practice all commercial banks in the country have implemented it".

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Kosovo has emphasized that for several years now it has continuously requested and held meetings and ongoing activities demanding that the fees for metallic currencies for businesses that have been banned from 3.7%, 5%, 8% and more submitted during the deposit of metallic coins from their circulation, to leave because this fee has seriously damaged the businesses that operate with metallic coins.

"As an example for illustration, we are clarifying that before the change of the fee for the deposit of metallic coins by the CBK, for the delivery of 10,000 EUR of metallic money to commercial banks, the business was banned from 370 to 500 euros.

The businesses that were most affected by this fee were bakeries, markets, small shops, etc., which mostly deal with coins, and which operate with very low profit margins, hence the application of this fee has caused a great burden for these businesses"./ Monitor magazine
