Bucharest, January 19th, 2015

Banca Comerciala Romana (BCR) supports the newly incorporated companies by means of a special cost offer – ZERO commissions for 12 months, as of the date when these entities start their co-operation with BCR.

For one year starting from the date when the newly-incorporated companies actually start their co-operation with BCR,  zero commissions will be charged for the following operations:

  1. opening and monthly managing the account
  2. RON debit card management
  3. managing the internet banking service - Click/Business 24 Banking BCR
  4. national transactions in RON via Click 24 Banking BCR, except for the TransFond/National Bank commissions
  5. BCR SMS Alert service
  6. cash collected via payment orders

“Start-up companies need support over their first year in business. BCR’s offer is most beneficial one on the market and proves that we are really supporting this sector and we really want to uphold its development. Since we know that business does not start on the very incorporation day, the 12 commission-free months start elapsing from the time when these new companies actually start working with us. Non-BCR corporate clients that have been operating on the market for more than 12 months but wish to test BCR’s solution will also enjoy ZERO commissions for 3 months”, Magda Sandulescu – Executive Director for Retail Management at BCR - explained.

BCR is Romania’s No. 1 bank in terms of asset value (over 14,4 €bn.), in terms of client base and in terms of savings and crediting.
