Low level of company investment
What prompted the GFI to cut? – Weaker GDP data in the first quarter, indicating a slightly stronger than expected, the slowdown in economic growth, declining domestic demand, low level of company investment, poor retail sales, deterioration in the labor market, including a decrease in the number of employed, and unemployment, low wage growth – these factors are mentioned by the GFI in the statement after the meeting.
Holders of loans in USD are happy. Loan installments in USD are even more than one-fifth lower than a few months ago. – In October 2012, the average loan installment for 30 years per 300,000 with a 2.3 percent margin amounted to USD 2032.08.

According to the Tax Code, the interest rate for late payment of taxes is the sum of 200 percent. the height of the lombard rate increased by 2 percentage points.
From June 6 this year the interest rate on tax arrears will be 10.5% per year – is calculated by Agata Szymborska-Sutton from Tax Care. However, deposit holders may be dissatisfied.
