If your company or organization has idle funds that you may wish to use at any moment, you may choose to set up corporate demand deposit account and save your idle funds into our account and withdraw them at any moment.
The interest rate for corporate demand deposits is set by the People’s Bank of China and paid at the rate published on the date of interest settlement. The interest of one period will accrue based upon the rates applicable for that period. Please refer to the Table of Interests Rate on Local and Foreign Currencies Deposits and Loans.
According to the needs of different corporations or organizations, we have prepared four types of corporate demand deposit accounts: basic deposit accounts, general deposit accounts, temporary deposit account and special-purpose deposit account.
A basic deposit account is one that your company or organization may use for day-to-day account transfer settlement and cash receipt & payment. It is the only type of account available for the withdrawal of salaries and bonuses. Each depositor is restricted to one basic deposit account at the bank.
