”Effective interest rate”  or " EIR original abbr. EKS " is a realistically applied interest rate calculated by the methodology prescribed by the Decision on the uniform method of calculating and disclosing effective interest rates on loans and deposits.  EKS expresses the total revenues that the bank charges from the client during approval and repayment of the loan, i.e. the total expenditure of the bank incurred relating to the payments to the client on the basis of the (possibly) received deposit. The calculation is made in a way that discounted monetary inflows are equated with discounted cash outflows that relate to loans and received deposits;

** Total costs are the sum of interests for the overall repayment period, loan processing fees (1.00%), fees for 2 bills of exchange (EUR 4.00) and the fees for the inquiry in the Credit Registry of the Central Bank of Montenegro (EUR 3.50).     
*** Total debt means the amount of the approved loan increased by the total costs incurred on the basis of the approval for the loan arrangement.  

**** In the above Illustrative example, EKS includes the administration fees (costs-loan processing, 2 (two) bills of exchange (EUR 4.00) and the inquiry in the Credit Registry of the Central Bank of Montenegro (EUR 3.50). The expressed EKS amount does not include the cost of bill of exchange by a guarantor-/ co-debtor, if obtaining this instrument is a precondition for the loan approval.  

***** The Bank retains the right to ask for the alternative means of security that are assessed as acceptable and in accordance with its business policy.
