Account Maintenance Fee: Zenith, FBN Holdings, five others generate N13bn in three months

As Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has indirectly reintroduced Commission on Turnover (CoT) fee as Current Account Maintenance (CAM) Fee, seven Deposit Money Banks in Nigeria generated N13 billion incomes in three months of 2016.
The banks are Zenith Bank Plc, First Bank of Nigeria Holdings Plc, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc and Access Bank Plc. Others are First City Monument Bank Group, Union Bank of Nigeria, United Bank for Africa.
Between January 1, and March 30, 2016, Zenith Bank recorded the highest CAM fees of N5.4 billion, followed by FBN Holdings Plc that recorded a 119 per cent rise in its CAM from N1.4 billion in first quarter of 2015 to N3.07 billion in immediate first quarter of 2016.
Business247 findings revealed that FCMB group had recorded a CAM of N740.9 million, an increase of about 21 per cent from N611 million recorded in first quarter ended March 2015. Union Bank of Nigeria gained N283 million in incomes generated through CAM.
Meanwhile, some banks suffered decline in CAM fee in the period under review as customers deposit into current account dropped due to economy headwinds.
United Bank for Africa recorded a decline of 55 per cent from N2.56 billion to N1.15 billion while Access Bank CAM also dropped by 40 per cent to N487 million as against N817 million in reported in Q1 2015.
Furthermore, Guaranty Trust Bank recorded a decline of 32 per cent to N1.97 billion in Q1 2016 as against N2.9 billion in Q1 2015.
The CBN in 2013 had commenced phased reduction of CoT which terminated with zero CoT charge this year, a directive by former CBN governor, Emir Sanusi Lamido.
But in a circular signed by Director, Financial Policy & Regulation Department, Mr. Kevin Amugo, the CBN replaced the CoT with CAM but subject to maximum of N1 per N1000 (Mille). The circular was titled, “Introduction of Negotiable Current Account Maintenance Fee Not Exceeding N1/Mille.
It stated, “The Revised Guide to Bank Charges (RGBC) which came into effect on April 1, 2013 provides for a phased elimination of CoT charges in the Nigerian banking Industry. Under the Guidelines, a zero CoT regime was to come into effect from January 2016.
The CBN noted that while the gradual phase out was being observed, some banks continued to charge Account Maintenance Fees in addition to the reduced CoT rate, which in effect amounted to double coincidence of charges.
The CBN is not oblivious of the impact of declining crude oil prices; operation of Treasury Single Account; and other market turbulences on the viability and stability of the banking system.
“In furtherance of the mandate to promote and safeguard a sound financial system in Nigeria, banks are by this circular reminded that the 2016 Zero CoT regime as jointly agreed during the 311th Bankers Committee meeting of February 12, 2013 has come into effect. In the interest of stability of the banking system, a Negotiable Current Account Maintenance Fee not exceeding N1 per mille may be charged in respect of all customer induced debit transactions. Please ensure strict compliance.”
Many consumer groups have been condemning the introduction of the fee, describing as a cheating on the hapless bank customers.

    I have noticed that in unwanted cameras, unique devices help to concentrate automatically. Those sensors with some surveillance cameras change in in the area of contrast, while others work with a beam associated with infra-red (IR) light, particularly in low lighting. Higher spec cameras from time to time use a mix of both systems and may have Face Priority AF where the digital camera can ‘See’ your face while keeping your focus only in that. Thank you for sharing your ideas on this web site.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
