Scope

– After reviving Greece’s economy, the government relaxed some of its capital control measures, effective from October 2018. A new law removed the cap on ATM cash withdrawals, which was previously capped at €5,000 ($5,727.74); increased the cash limit that can be carried abroad by Greek consumers to €10,000 ($11,455.48) per trip, from a previous cap of €3,000 ($3,436.64); and revised the daily fund transfer limit abroad by businesses to €100,000 ($114,554.77) from €40,000 ($45,821.91). However, the cap on cash transactions for purchases of goods and services remains unchanged.
– To facilitate instant real-time transfer, Hellenic Bank Association member banks launched two new services called IRIS Mobile Payments and IRIS Online Payments in May 2017. IRIS Mobile Payments enables consumers to make peer-to-peer (P2P) or peer-to-business (P2B) instant transfers of up to €500 ($572.77) per day per registered payer. Consumers are only required to provide the beneficiary’s mobile number for individuals, or the VAT number for a business or self-employed person. The service is offered by Piraeus Bank, National Bank of Greece (NBG), Alpha Bank and Eurobank. Similarly, under the IRIS Online Payment service, consumers can transfer up to €12,500 ($14,319.35) by providing the name of the beneficiary’s bank and their IBAN account number. Alpha Bank, NBG, Eurobank, Piraeus Bank and Attica Bank currently offer this service.
– To promote electronic payments in the country, the government passed a law stating that from 1 January 2017, all employed and unemployed taxpayer individuals in Greece are eligible for tax deductions on their annual income for purchases made via debit and credit cards. While the purchase of goods, electronics, footwear and clothing, and medical services and supplies are entitled to tax benefits, deduction can’t be availed on utility bills, landlines and mobile phones, heating, rent or loan repayments. Furthermore, the government revised the cap on cash transaction for purchases to €500 ($572.77) on January 1, 2017 from the previous €1,500 ($1,718.32); this means Greek consumers have to pay for goods and services worth above €500 electronically with payment cards.
