Please keep the book from being bent or damaged as this will affect its operation. The current rate of interest is 4.5% per annum.
You can make deposits and withdrawals from any of the bank's ATM machines 7 days a week from 7 AM until 10 PM. You can either deposit or withdraw up to a maximum of Eur 17,000 per month without the worries of facing bank employees and having language difficulties. If you were to withdraw more than that from a traditional Sparbuch you would need to identify yourself.
