leave a comment »

Points of Essence:

  • Iranians banks will be subjected to a new profit rate policy which decided the followings:
  1. profit rate on financial facilities on exchanged agreements will be 12 per cent:
  2. the profit on banking facilities for the priority projects of small, fast-response and agriculture firms will be 10 per cent – inclusive of government subsidy.
  3. However, the latter will be conditional to the success of the projects’ objectives, otherwise the profit on them will be 12 per cent.

A policy-supervision package has been presented to the banks to be implemented from tomorrow after being signed by the president [Mahmud Ahmadinezhad].

The chancellor of the Central Bank of Iran, [Tahmasb] Mazaheri, said that following exchanges of views over decreasing banking interests, it was finally agreed to keep the interest rates unchanged until the discussion about inflation is finalized this year.

Mazaheri added that according to the new instruction, the profit [interest] on financial facilities on exchanged agreements [Oqud-e Mobadele’i] will be 12 per cent and the profit on banking facilities for the priority projects of small, fast-response and agriculture firms will be 10 per cent – inclusive of government subsidy. However, the latter will be conditional to the success of the projects’ objectives, otherwise the profit on them will be 12 per cent.
