BNP Paribas' Polish unit boosts provisions for loan fees reimbursement

BNP Paribas SA's Polish unit BNP Paribas Bank Polska SA set aside a 20.8 million zloty provision for the proportional reimbursement of fees in the event of early loan repayment.

The lender made the provision following the September ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union, which confirmed the right of Polish bank clients to a reduction in the total costs of a consumer loan in case of its early repayment.

The total amount of provisions set aside by the bank for the proportional fees reimbursement in 2019 reached 69.6 million zlotys, with a 48.8 million zloty provision set aside soon after the court ruling.

As of Dec. 30, US$1 was equivalent to 3.79 Polish zlotys.
