The Cypriot cabinet has declared Tuesday a bank holiday, for fear of capital flight, and this may even be stretched to Wednesday, as depositors are certain to withdraw huge sums from the Cypriot banks after the haircut imposed.

They are now saying that they cannot get enough votes to pass this bill... It really is the worst case scenario because everybody will STILL take their cash out whenever the banks allow them yet they won't have the €5B they were planning to steal...  ::)

Looking from afar there's so much idiocies in all this.  There is an effin great Cyprus bill to be paid by someone(s) and seems that haircut has been rumoured for ages but how can your president give an assurance on March 7th  (http://english.cntv.cn/20130308/101001.shtml) that this won't happen and then agree it and not resign and/or cut off his own head?

Because he's a total punt cerchance?

Anyone else spotted that someone with 99k gets to keep 92k and someone with 100k gets to keep 90k?

Who's going to bet it doesn't change to a 20% tax of monies over £100k

No, as far as I can tell nothing gets paid and you cannot use credit or debit cards... It is a bank holiday today so hard to tell...

It is only the south affected - not the 'occupied areas' in the North of Cyprus....

From the Telegraph:

Pension payments to expat Britons in Cyprus will be suspended until the island's parliament votes on a proposed savings levy drawn up as part of a bail-out package, MPs have been told.

Greg Clark, a Treasury minister, said payments due today had been frozen to ensure that money from the Government reached its intended recipient.

Payments will resume once the situation becomes clear, Mr Clark said, adding that it is possible to change the designated bank account online.

Mr Clark told MPs the situation in Cyprus remained "fluid" in the wake of the bail-out proposals from the eurozone over the weekend, aimed at preventing the country's banks from going bust.

Making a Commons statement, Mr Clark said: "Today is a bank holiday in Cyprus and to ensure any payments made by the Government to banks in Cyprus get to the intended recipient, all future pension payments paid by the Government to British citizens in Cyprus will be temporarily put on hold until least tomorrow.

"This allows us to take stock of developments in Cyprus. Any UK pensioners in Cyprus can be assured their future pension payments are being held safely and the normal payment service will resume when the situation in Cyprus becomes clear.

Breaking: Eurozone finance ministers have ended their video conference call on the Cyprus crisis.

And the big news is that the Eurogroup have apparently agreed to give Cyprus more flexibility on its bank levy. As long as it hits the €5.8bn target. And it appears that tomorrow's vote in parliament still goes ahead.

That's according to a source in the Greek finance minister, interviewed by Reuters.

Here are the latest snaps off the Reuters terminal:

• EUROGROUP MEETING ON CYPRUS OVER, EUROGROUP GIVES CYPRUS MORE FLEXIBILITY ON BANK LEVY - GREEK FINMIN SOURCE

• EUROGROUP TO SAY THAT CYPRUS SHOULD SAFEGUARD PROTECTION OF DEPOSITORS BELOW 100,000 EUROS - GREEK FINMIN SOURCE

• CYPRUS PARLIAMENTARY VOTE ON BANK LEVY TO TAKE PLACE ON TUESDAY, AS PLANNED - GREEK FIN MIN SOURCE

• CYPRUS SHOULD STILL RAISE 5.8 BILLION EUROS FROM THE BANK LEVY AS PLANNED - GREEK FINANCE MINISTRY SOURCE

WTF?  noooo:

Fitch puts Cypriot banks on rating watch negative

Rating agency Fitch has put three Cyprus banks - Bank of Cyprus, Cyprus Popular Bank and Hellenic Bank - on Rating Watch Negative while the bailout drama plays out.

In a statement, Fitch said it took the move because of Cyprus's decision to tax savers (by turning a percentage of their deposits into equity). It also suggested that it could downgrade the banks to 'restricted default' if this occurs.

Fitch said:

Quote
    The Negative Watches will be resolved after a decision by the Cypriot parliament on the above extraordinary measures, which could come as early as today.

    The crystallisation of such significant losses on depositors would constitute a restricted default (RD) under Fitch's rating definitions, in which case the IDRs [individual default ratings] would be downgraded to 'RD'.

On another angle this is an interesting read (http://www.bankofcyprus.com/Documents/Investor%20Relations/Financial%20information/English/9M12%20FS_ENG.pdf) esp the balance sheet on page 5 and then notes 5 and 11.  Anyone reading that then put any serious money in a Cyprus bank would be certifiable esp after on Feb 28th they announced they were unable to publish their compulsory account filing.

Statement by the Government Spokesman Mr Christos Stylianides
19/03/2013



The President of the Republic, Mr Nicos Anastasiades, is continuing intensive deliberations with and briefing of Heads of States and European Officials regarding the climate that has been created after the Eurogroup decision of last week and in view of the expected meeting of the House of Representatives this evening.

Last night the President had a telephone conversation with the German Chancellor Mrs Merkel whom he briefed about the current situation in Cyprus. The President informed the Chancellor that the possibility was considered to cut the loan needs through Cypriot funds.

The President of the Republic is expected to have another conversation with Mrs Merkel today and he will continue his contacts with other leaders as well.

Meanwhile the Finance Minister, Mr Michalis Sarris, is leaving for Moscow today where he will meet with his Russian counterpart Mr Anton Siluanov.

A sudden sell-off has wiped half a cent off the value of the euro, sending it down to $1.289 against the US dollar.

Two rumours, both currently unsubstantiated, are to blame.

1) that the Cypriot finance minister Michalis Sarris, has offered to resign, but has had the offer rejected by president Anastasiades.

This is running on several newswires, but we don't yet have any official confirmation.

2) That the vote on the bailout package will go ahead tonight, but that the government MPs will not support the plan, meaning it certainly fails.

That's via the BBC's Athens correspondent, Mark Owen.

This crisis will pass, it's the long term position that is the concern imho. 

Seems your powers that be let the banks go loopy as the underlying economy was so weak.  Cyprus will have to realign itself to that true economy.   Tourism might increase though

Not sure how that would leave you all

Actually, the economy was not so week... it is only the exposure of the banks to the Greek banks that has really fucked us up...

However, the €uro and recent austerity measures have completely fucked the place up as far as tourism goes...

The best case scenario for Cyprus (IMHO) is an exit from the €uro, adoption of the Cyprus Pound again and devaluation...

But devaluation is in effect cutting everyone's spending power and also their wages so the country's offerings become more competitive in the world.  A realignment.

It's not easy to work out how a country actually can change currencies if everyone knows that'the real reason is to devalue.  A massive run on the banks would precede it.   You might just as well do what Aniseedballs first thought of.  Ad that's just so popular isn't it.

A president who makes an international deal he then cannot get a single MP to vote for, that's got to be a first.

But then, borrowing €10B (which we will never be able to pay back) and being tied to the €uro isn't very attractive either...

Plus, people WILL remove their cash when the banks open... even tho they eventually voted against the haircut...

The Cyprus cabinet are reportedly to discuss capital controls, presumably to prevent money flooding out of the country when the banks do re-open.

And on that subject, it seems likely they will remain closed until at least the end of the week. (And with Monday being a bank holiday, possibly longer).

ECB gives Cyprus until Monday

BIG NEWS: The European Central Bank has announced that it has agreed to continue supplying emergency funding to Cyprus's banks until next Monday.

But if the bailout hasn't been agreed by then, the ECB would step away. It's quite an ultimatum.

Here's the statement:

 
Quote
  The Governing Council of the European Central Bank decided to maintain the current level of Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA) until Monday, 25 March 2013

    Thereafter, Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA) could only be considered if an EU/IMF programme is in place that would ensure the solvency of the concerned banks.

That sets Nicosia a clear deadline -- find €6bn by next week, in a way that satisfies the IMF and the European Union, or your banks collapse.

Key event

If the ECB does pull the plug then there could be turmoil in Cyprus next Tuesday, when the banks were scheduled to finally reopen.

And the deposit guarantee scheme which is meant to protect depositors in the event of a bank collapse could quickly be proved worthless.

As Frances Coppola (a former banker) has blogged about here, deposit guarantee schemes are only as good as the national government who stands behind them. And Cyprus does not appear to have the assets to hand to cover the deposits in its banking sector:

So, Coppola explains:

Quote
    It is time that depositors were told the truth. The lack of a common deposit insurance scheme in the Eurozone means that deposit insurance is a luxury available only to those countries that can afford it - which are also the countries that least need it. Everywhere else, it is a sham.

Potentially awful news for Cypriots, as well as thousands of ex-pats from the UK and beyond.

  The Governing Council of the European Central Bank decided to maintain the current level of Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA) until Monday, 25 March 2013

    Thereafter, Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA) could only be considered if an EU/IMF programme is in place that would ensure the solvency of the concerned banks.

That sets Nicosia a clear deadline -- find €6bn by next week, in a way that satisfies the IMF and the European Union, or your banks collapse.

 scared2:

I suppose the threat of the banks all going tits up and consequently losing all your dosh makes the idea of a 6/10% "haircut" look almost appealing . . .

Still, on the bright side, at least it gets you out of the €uro . . . .      whistle:

Theoretically, we are covered by the bank guarantee scheme if the banks go tits...

Agreed.

Problem is: where's the guarantee cash going to come from?

Still think you need to brush up on your Russki speak . . .

Key event

If the ECB does pull the plug then there could be turmoil in Cyprus next Tuesday, when the banks were scheduled to finally reopen.

And the deposit guarantee scheme which is meant to protect depositors in the event of a bank collapse could quickly be proved worthless.

As Frances Coppola (a former banker) has blogged about here, deposit guarantee schemes are only as good as the national government who stands behind them. And Cyprus does not appear to have the assets to hand to cover the deposits in its banking sector:

So, Coppola explains:

Quote
    It is time that depositors were told the truth. The lack of a common deposit insurance scheme in the Eurozone means that deposit insurance is a luxury available only to those countries that can afford it - which are also the countries that least need it. Everywhere else, it is a sham.

Potentially awful news for Cypriots, as well as thousands of ex-pats from the UK and beyond.

Eurozone officials are increasingly alarmed about the situation in Cyprus, according to the notes of a conference call seen by Reuters.

During the call, which took place last night, officials admitted they were "in a mess" as they discussed whether capital controls (limits on bank withdrawals and cash movements) could protect the country.

Cyprus didn't attend the call - another worrying sign - as other officials talked about the risk of the country quitting the eurozone.

Reuters reports:

Quote
    In detailed notes of the call seen by Reuters, one official described emotions as running "very high", making it difficult to come up with rational solutions, and referred to "open talk in regards of (Cyprus) leaving the euro zone".

    The call was among members of the Eurogroup Working Group, which consists of deputy finance ministers or senior treasury officials from the 17 euro zone countries as well as representatives from the European Central Bank and the European Commission. The group is chaired by Austria's Thomas Wieser.

    Cyprus decided not to take part in the call, a decision that several participants described as troubling and reflecting the wider confusion surrounding the island's predicament.

    "The (Cypriot) parliament is obviously too emotional and will not decide on anything, if Cyprus does not even feel that they can attend the call it is a big problem for us," the French representative said, according to the notes seen by Reuters. "We have never seen this."

Cypriot officials now propose a state investment fund and special bond issue to raise 5.8bn euros.

The other 1.2bn would be raised through privatisations and by increasing capital gains tax and the corporate tax rate.

So the Russkies buy the bond (clever) and then take over when all the industry scarpers to avoid that increased tax rate  rubschin:

Investment Solidarity Fund
Written statement by the Government Spokesman,
Mr Christos Stylianides

Following a proposal by the President of the Republic a concensus was reached and a unanimous decision was taken for the setting up of an Investment Solidarity Fund. The proposal is currently undergoing legal and technical processing by the Law Office of the Republic.

If it is considered necessary on the basis of the legal and technical processing, the Council of Ministers will be convened immediately in order to approve it, and it will be forwarded to the House of Representatives for the rest.

Capital controls to be implemented in Cyprus - DJ

Dow Jones newswires is reporting the bank reform legislation which is being submitted to the Cypriot parliament tonight will impost capital controls on its banking sector.

That will restricted the amount of money that can be taken out of a bank (when they reopen).

Quite a moment for the single currency.

S&P downgrades Cyprus

Another blow: Standard & Poor's has cut its credit rating on Cyprus by one notch a few minutes ago, to CCC.

That's two notches above default.

Interesting timing - given the uncertainty tonight over Cyprus's plans. And I imagine anyone considering investing in Cyprus is well aware that it got somewhat riskier this week.

FT Alphaville's Joseph Cotterill advises against snarking about rating agencies, though:

What capital controls mean

We now have details of the 'capital controls' which Cyprus intends to vote into law (sometime) today, thanks to star blogger @YiannisMouzakis:

It's a remarkable set of restrictions on the usual nuts and bolts of the financial system - particularly given the final point:

    Restrictions in daily withdrawals
    Ban on premature termination of time savings deposits
    Compulsory renewal of all time savings deposits upon maturity
    Conversion of current accounts to time deposits
    Ban or restrictions on non cash transactions
    Restrictions on use of debit, credit or prepaid debit cards
    Ban or restriction on cashing in checks
    Restrictions on domestic interbank transfers or transfers within the same bank
    Restrictions on the interactions/transactions of the public with credit institutions
    Restrictions on movements of capital, payments, transfers
    Any other measure which the Finance Minister or the Governor of Cyprus Central Bank see necessary for reasons of public order and safety

Famagusta Gazzette today (22/03)

Petrol stations in Cyprus are in danger of closing since owners do not have cash to refill their reserves.

Chairman of the Petrol Owners Association, Stephanos Stephanou told CNA that the situation has worsened since yesterday with gas stations accepting only cash, while people are running out of cash.
He clarified that Cyprus has enough fuel reserves but the owners of stations are running out of money to obtain more fuel.

He urged the people to use cash while fuelling up at the pump.
Stephanou said some stations take credit cards but from tomorrow, no station will be accepting credit cards

Cyprus has reportedly agreed to a new scheme to tax deposits in order to raise the money to bail outs its banks.

According to Reuters, a 20% tax on deposits over 100K at the Bank of Cyprus would be levied. That would be coupled with a 4% tax across the board elsewhere.

Remember, on Tuesday the Cypriot parliament overwhelmingly rejected a tax deposit scheme that was agreed to exactly a week ago. In the first version of the plan, deposits over 100K were to be taxed at 9.9%, while those below that level would have been 6.5%.

This new version is more progressive.

This is not official, or a done deal by any means.

For one thing, at the moment, there's a planned Eurogroup meeting tomorrow night, and Olli Rehn has just put out a statement on the need to reach a deal this weekend.

Furthermore, any deal will need to be voted on and approved by the Cypriot parliament.

A key meeting of eurozone finance ministers to finalise a crucial bailout for Cyprus has been delayed as talks to hammer out an agreement overran.

President Nicos Anastasiades is locked in talks with EU, European Central Bank and IMF leaders in Brussels.

The finance ministers - know as the Eurogroup - must decide on Sunday whether or not to approve the bailout.

Cyprus needs to raise 5.8bn euros (£5bn) to qualify for a 10bn euro EU bailout and avoid bankruptcy.

A eurozone official said the Eurogroup meeting had been rescheduled for about 20:00 local time (19:00 GMT) from 18:00 because talks with Cypriot officials ahead of those discussions had overrun.

In another development on Sunday, Bank of Cyprus - the island's biggest lender - further limited cash machine withdrawals to 120 euros a day.

With queues growing outside cash machines across the island, the second biggest lender, Laiki (Popular) Bank, also lowered its daily limit to 100 euros, Cyprus News Agency reported. The bank's previous limit had been 260 euros per day.

Banks have been closed since Monday and many businesses are only taking payment in cash.

In the run-up to the crunch talks in Brussels, the EU's commissioner for economic affairs Olli Rehn said the island had only "hard choices left" and must agree terms on Sunday.

Two main Cyprus banks slash ATM withdrawal limits

Nicosia. The two main banks at the centre of Cyprus's financial crisis slashed the daily cash withdawal limits from ATM machines on Sunday, state media reported, cited by AFP.
With queues growing outside cash machines across the island, Laiki (Popular) Bank cut maximum withdrawals at ATMs to 100 euros a day and the Bank of Cyprus reduced its limit to 120 euros a day, the Cyprus News Agency said.
Laiki bank, Cyprus's second biggest lender, had already restricted withdrawals to 260 euros a day on Thursday after its ATMs were besieged by customers drawing their previous daily limits of 700 euros.
Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades was in bailout talks in Brussels on restructuring the island's banks and dealing with a mounting cash shortfall via a "haircut", or levy, of large bank deposits.
The Mediterranean island faces possible exit from the euro, with the European Central Bank due to halt funding on Monday. Cyprus banks are not due to reopen until Tuesday after a 10-day shutdown.
Parlaiment has already passed legislation to put all Laiki deposits over 100,000 euros into a "bad bank" where they will be tied up for years and may never be fully recovered.
But negotiations have stumbled on EU-IMF demands for a substantial levy on deposits above the same threshold in the Bank of Cyprus to avoid it facing similar restructuring. The island's largest lender, it holds more than a third of all deposits.


Not just Laiki...... noooo:

Early reports coming out of Brussels suggest that the Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades threatened to resign because there are so many sticking points in talks.

The Eurogroup meeting has been delayed by around two hours and delegates are preparing for what could be a long night.

The main problems seem to be the restructuring of the banks and the possibility that Eurogroup members have asked for more money from Cyprus to meet the terms of a €10 billion euro bailout.

From ekathirimi.com, pretty much confirming the above reports:

Eurogroup suffers repeated delays as Anastasiades balks at troika demands

The start of the Eurogroup meeting was delayed by at least three hours on Sunday night amid tense negotiations about a possible bailout for Cyprus.

Eurozone ministers had arrived in Brussels for the talks, which were due to begin at 7 p.m. Greek time but the start was put back several times. It is thought that talks could begin at around 10 p.m. Greek time.

Ahead of the Eurogroup Anastasiades had been meeting with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, European Council chief Herman Van Rompuy, European Central Bank head Mario Draghi, European Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn and International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde.

It is though that the main sticking point in negotiations was the IMF’s insistence that Bank of Cyprus, the island’s largest lender, merge with Cyprus Popular Bank (Laiki) after its resolution and take on responsibility for the 9 billion euros in Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA) it had received from the European Central Bank.

Anastasiades reportedly rejected this proposal and warned Lagarde that he would be forced to resign if the IMF insisted on it.

Earlier, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble called for Anastasiades and Cypriot officials to view the challenges facing them “realistically”. “We had an agreement following our negotiations last Saturday but we start again today,” he said.

“There were talks during the week but I am not aware of their outcome. I hope we will be able to reach an agreement, however this demands that Cyprus must see the situation realistically. We are ready for a solution, we want to do everything and not spend every weekend here. It does not depend on us, but Cyprus.”

Ahead of the meeting an EU official with direct involvement in the talks told Kathimerini that there has been progress on details of a bailout agreement between Cyprus and the troika but some major obstacles remained.

The main question surrounds the future of the island’s largest lender, Bank of Cyprus. If unsecured deposits (above 100,000 euros) at all Cypriot banks are taxed then large savings at Bank of Cyprus are likely to be taxed between 20 and 25 percent. If the levy is not imposed on deposits at other lenders, the haircut for Bank of Cyprus customers will be much larger.

The option of a full bail in of Bank of Cyprus depositors is still on the table. As with Laiki, which is to go through a resolution process, the full bail in option could lead to deposits above 100,000 euros being lost. The only compensation for unsecured depositors will be shares in the “good” bank that will be created by a possible merger between the «healthy» Laiki and Bank of Cyprus entities.

Early reports coming out of Brussels suggest that the Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades threatened to resign because there are so many sticking points in talks.

The Eurogroup meeting has been delayed by around two hours and delegates are preparing for what could be a long night.

The main problems seem to be the restructuring of the banks and the possibility that Eurogroup members have asked for more money from Cyprus to meet the terms of a €10 billion euro bailout.

The best early reaction

Joseph Cotterill of FT Alphaville has written the best detailed analysis of the Cyprus deal: Scratch one stupid idea [Updated]:

Here are the key points (head over to AV for the full read (then come back!))

1) In case you didn’t get the memo the first time, this still isn’t about spanking money-launderers. (because there's no differentiation between foreign and domestic customers with over €100k)

2) It’s a depositor bail-in — for two specific banks, one of which is in full resolution. (rather than forcing all customers at all banks to contribute, as in the first - hated - bailout plan)

3) It’s also a senior bank bond bail-in. (Holders of Laiki’s senior unsecured debt look fully wiped out - those at Bank of Cyprus will take a brisk haircut)

4) Emergency Liquidity Assistance. -- Was this the week we found out that ELA will be protected from default no matter what? (under the deal, the assistance supplied by the European Central Bank to Laiki is now transferred to Bank of Cyprus)

* * * * * *

And over at Reuters, Felix Salmon points out that the winding-down of Laiki is a rather big deal for a rather small country:

   
Quote
The resolution of Laiki is going to give the world a very real example of what happens when a too-big-to-fail bank is allowed to fail.

    Laiki is small by global standards, but very large by comparison with Cyprus’s GDP. If Cyprus can survive Laiki’s collapse, then maybe — just maybe — the world could cope with the “resolution” of a big bank like Citigroup. But that’s a very big “if”.

    More likely, the costs to Cyprus of allowing Laiki to fail will be enormous, both politically and economically. And 800,000 Cypriots will for years to come be paying the price of what Mohamed El-Erian elegantly calls “bailout fatigue”.

Thank the Lord that the UK didn't sign up to the Euro.
Just for once Gordon Brown got something right ...... even if it was for all the wrong reasons.

Given the UK's ability to borrow at very low rates I was surprised that we didn't offer to help by giving Cyprus the 10 billion needed ..... Smacked too much of the old "Colonial" days I suppose.

Interesting the reaction of the "Occupied Territory" shown on Channel Four News last evening. The highly subsidised Turks are laughing their socks off even if some of their politicians are saying how sorry they are whilst others in the background of the interview were snorting in derision at such comments.

So then, in summary, it has been established that:

1. The Euro must survive
2. That to do so Germany the Eu must demand that governments be given the right to rob their citizens' bank accounts
3. That further crippling debt is imposed upon the nations concerned  (Italy next?)
4. That every bank account holder in the Eurozone will now be spreading money around wherever they can (mattress, floorboards, gold, dollars, anyfink. Even Sterling)

So essentially the bailout deal boils down to

A. An economy that will shrink rapidly and painfully as there is no credit to be had. Leading to people moving their cash out as fast as they are able to with the current restrictions.

B. An economy whose main industry is being destroyed.

While ordinary Cypriots queued at ATM machines to withdraw a few hundred euros as credit card transactions stopped, other depositors used an array of techniques to access their money.
 
No one knows exactly how much money has left Cyprus' banks, or where it has gone. The two banks at the centre of the crisis - Cyprus Popular Bank, also known as Laiki, and Bank of Cyprus - have units in London which remained open throughout the week and placed no limits on withdrawals. Bank of Cyprus also owns 80 percent of Russia's Uniastrum Bank, which put no restrictions on withdrawals in Russia. Russians were among Cypriot banks' largest depositors.

Early details of capital controls...

Capital controls to be imposed in Cyprus will limit foreign transactions and capital outflows but not movements of money within the country itself, according to the head of the its chamber of commerce.

Phidias Pelides made the comments to reporters after meeting government officials, saying:

 
Quote
  We have been assured that limitations will not affect transactions within Cyprus at all.

    Where there will be limitations is on what we spend abroad and also on capital outflows.

That would prevent the threat of capital racing out of Cyprus, draining its banks and creating a deeper liquidity crisis.

We still don't have confirmation that the banks will definitely open on Thursday....

Capital Controls announced

Details of Cyprus's capital controls are now hitting the newswires.

Here are the key points (mainly via Dow Jones and Reuters).

• All savings accounts must run until their expiry date - with no early withdrawals allowed.

• Cashing of cheques will be suspended, but 'cheque deposits' will be allowed.

• Individuals will only be allowed to take €3,000 in cash on each trip out of the country.

• Cypriots will only be allowed to transfer up to €10,000 per quarter for fellow citizens who are studying abroad.

• All credit/debit card transactions abroad will be capped at €5,000 per person, per month.

• The measures will apply to all accounts, regardless of the currency it uses.

• Import payments will be allowed when 'the relevant documents' are provided to the authorities.

• They will run for seven days

Seven days my big fat, hairy arse! happy001

The Phileleftheros website has published what it says are details of the restrictions that will be imposed when the banks reopen. It states that there may be changes.
Under the decree you cannot cash cheques unless you are making deposits.
No non-cash payments or transfers of money outside Cyprus except for payments for commercial transactions within the framework of the ordinary activities of the business with the presentation of documentary evidence.
Evidence is not required for amounts not exceeding €500.
Other exceptions include payment for employees outside the republic; living expenses of €10,000 per quarter and fees of people studying abroad and who are first-degree relatives of people residing in the Republic, again with the necessary documentation.
Payment and transfer outside the republic through debit, credit or prepaid cards of up to €5,000 per month for every credit institution
Payment of claims for insurance companies.
Other payments and transfers that have the approval of the committee
A notice account cannot be terminated before its due date unless it is used to pay a loan at the same credit institution. It is forbidden to take notes in euros or other foreign exchange of more than the equivalent of €3,000 per person per trip. Customs will ensure this.
Any exchange payment or transfer not completed before these measures came into effect are covered by this decree.
Exceptions are all moneys coming from abroad, diplomatic missions, financial transactions within the same account, payments approved by the committee, the Republic and the Central Bank.
This applies for seven days starting with publication in the gazette.

Capital controls confirmed

And finally, a central bank official has announced tonight that capital controls will be imposed, but initially for just four days.

Reuters has the story:

Quote
    Cyprus will limit the use of cheques to businesses, cap cash withdrawals to 300 euros per day and scrutinise all commercial transactions over 5,000 euros when banks reopen on Thursday, a Central Bank official said.

    Yiangos Demetriou, head of internal audit at the Central Bank, said the controls would allow unlimited use of credit cards within Cyprus, but set a limit of 5,000 euros ($6,400) per month abroad.

    He said the measures would remain in place for four days, contradicting an earlier report by the Athens newspaper Kathimerini that the controls would last seven days.

    "That doesn't mean it cannot be reviewed in the meantime depending on developments," Demetriou told the Cypriot state broadcaster.

    "The rationale is that these measures will be reviewed on a daily basis, so if there is the possibility of relaxing them we will," he said.

    The central bank says banks will reopen at midday (1000 GMT) on Thursday, ten days after they closed their doors on the orders of the government to avert a run on deposits as the island negotiated a bailout deal with the European Union and International Monetary Fund.

    Demetriou said the central bank would review all commercial transactions between 5,000 and 200,000 euros, and scrutinise any larger transactions on a case-by-case basis.

All very good natured...

There was a security guard letting people in two at a time - partly to save everybody overhearing their problems.

We couldn't get any cash - the Bank of Cyprus simply has no mechanism for transferring money from our 90-day account into our current account so that we can draw it from a cash machine. Previously we could take out €1,000 per day with no penalty.

Consequently, we have had to give three months notice on the account. They will then transfer €5,000 to our current account in June from which we can take €600 per day (€300 each). the remainder will return to a 30 day account which we will give notice on... etc.

Some harrowing stories outside the bank - an English guy is due to have an operation on his throat Saturday but they simply cannot withdraw the €1,000 deposit they need for it to go ahead.

A Greek guy we know is in the same position as us but has no cash on him at all and was considering flying out of the country to withdraw funds elsewhere.

And English couple with all their savings in the bank and still no information on the size of the haircut they are going to get...

We had a Dollar account with a small amount in it (it came from the Google ads in here years ago). We closed that and transferred it to our current account (two days). We also had a couple of cheques (both BoC) which we paid in and we'll have the cash from those when they clear...

We couldn't get any cash - the Bank of Cyprus simply has no mechanism for transferring money from our 90-day account into our current account so that we can draw it from a cash machine. Previously we could take out €1,000 per day with no penalty.

Consequently, we have had to give three months notice on the account. They will then transfer €5,000 to our current account in June from which we can take €600 per day (€300 each). the remainder will return to a 30 day account which we will give notice on... etc.

Some harrowing stories outside the bank - an English guy is due to have an operation on his throat Saturday but they simply cannot withdraw the €1,000 deposit they need for it to go ahead.

A Greek guy we know is in the same position as us but has no cash on him at all and was considering flying out of the country to withdraw funds elsewhere.

And English couple with all their savings in the bank and still no information on the size of the haircut they are going to get...

NICOSIA - Cyta, the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority will be offering free national calls on fixed phones to other Cyta subscribers – both fixed line and mobile – for the month of April in order to help alleviate the blow from the economic crisis.
Cyta added that it would not be disconnecting any of its subscribers who have not been able to settle their bills because of the lack of liquidity in the economy following a two week closure of the banks. The organisation will review this decision on April 15, in the light of the situation at the time.
Payment of bills by standing orders has been moved from March 29 to April 3 while Cyta is setting up a toll free helpline on 80008060 from April to help clients settle their bills and offer alternative solutions to facilitate them, it added.
Cyta said it was launching a new mobile phone package for companies, Cytamobile-Vodafone Business Benefits offering discounts. It said this was the first of special packages being introduced to meet the changed needs of its clients.
“Appreciating the seriousness of the situation, Cyta is looking at further measures to facilitate its clients during these difficult economic times,” it concluded.

SOCIALISM
You have 2 cows.
You give one to your neighbour

COMMUNISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you some milk

FASCISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk

NAZISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots you

BUREAUCRATISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then
throws the milk away

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies, and the economy
grows.
You sell them and retire on the income

ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND (VENTURE) CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by
your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption
for five cows.
The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company.
The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release.
The public then buys your bull.

SURREALISM
You have two giraffes.
The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to
produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why
the cow has dropped dead.

A GREEK CORPORATION
You have two cows. You borrow lots of euros to build barns, milking sheds, hay stores, feed sheds,
dairies, cold stores, abattoir, cheese unit and packing sheds.
You still only have two cows.

A FRENCH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three
cows.

You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce
twenty times the milk.
You then create a clever cow cartoon image called a Cowkimona and
market it worldwide.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows,
but you don't know where they are.
You decide to have lunch.

A SWISS CORPORATION
You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you.
You charge the owners for storing them.

A CHINESE CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You have 300 people milking them.
You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity.
You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You worship them.

A BRITISH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Both are mad.

AN IRAQI CORPORATION
Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.
You tell them that you have none.
No-one believes you, so they bomb the ** out of you and invade your country.
You still have no cows, but at least you are now a Democracy.

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Business seems pretty good.
You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

A NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION

3) The next €22,500 is 'frozen' for an undefined period.

St Peter decides he wants a new coat of paint on the Pearly Gates. He asks an Albanian for a quote. The man says €600: €300 for the materials and €300 for my labour.

He gets a second quote from a German who says €900: €300 for the materials, €300 for my labour and €300 for the tax I have to pay on it.

He then asks a Greek, who says €3,000.

"Why so much?" St Peter asks in horror.

The Greek replies, "Listen, pal, there's €1,000 for you, €1,000 for me, €300 for the materials, €300 to get the Germans to look the other way, and €400 to hire an Albanian to do the work".

EC cuts growth forecasts

Breaking news: the European Commission has cut its growth forecasts for the euro area, and warned that unemployment levels in the region are unacceptably high.

In its Spring forecasts, the EC predicted that eurozone GDP would fall by 0.4% this year, worse than the 0.3% decline pencilled in previously.

For bailed-out, buffeted Cyprus, the EC now predicts a 8.7% tumble in economic output this year.

Draft law to bail-in large depositors approved

Europe has moved a step closer to bailing in large depositors in future bank rescues, as happened in Cyprus this year.

Last night, the European Parliament's economics committee approved draft legislation under which customers with more than €100,000 would be liable to fund a rescue package. Smaller savers, though, would still be protected.

This new bank recovery and resolution mechanism is meant to end the era of taxpayer-funded bank rescues. Bank of England Deputy Governor Paul Tucker called it a milestone towards a world where governments were no longer willing to rescue banks that are “too big to fail”.

Under the EU proposal, a bank would dip into large deposits of over €100,000 once it had exhausted other avenues such as shareholders and bondholders, Reuters explains.

There could still be a battle, though, over who stands first in line for losses.

Be warned!

"When checking my MTN PayAsYouGo balance and validity period, I find that MTN have reduced my validity period from December to August. I spoke to MTN who really could not care less - "It is the new company policy" was repeated time and time again. MTN's new policy will mean a minimum cost of €60 a year for PayAsYouGo. For me it will be either Primetel or Cyta. In fact Cyta and Primetel must be 'jumping for joy' at their competitors stupid company rules."

New validity periods on Topup cards
€5 - 30 days

Bank of Cyprus close to depositor deal

Cypriot officials are close to finalising the terms of losses for Bank of Cyprus depositors, in a sign that the country’s banking crisis has panned out more benignly than feared.

Deposits at the lender in excess of the guaranteed limit of €100,000 would be subject to a 47.5 per cent haircut under the agreement. In March, policy makers had said that 37.5 per cent of deposits would be wiped out with a further 22.5 per cent held in escrow to cover unforeseen needs – raising the prospect of a 60 per cent reduction in depositors’ funds in all.


They still haven't sorted it all out....  noooo:

Bank of Cyprus savers suffer 47.5% haircut

It's offficial. Large investors with more than €100,000 in Bank of Cyprus when the country collapsed into a bailout this year are surrendering 47.5% of that money in exchange for new shares in the company.

The Central Bank of Cyprus announced the news today. It put a positive spin on it, saying "significant progress" had been made in recapitalising BoC.

According to Reuters, the move means depositors will lose around €8bn.

And what of the rest? The Central Bank of Cyprus explained that 12% of deposits that were previously blocked will be released. The balance will be split into three deposits per customer, which will be locked for six, nine and 12 months each. However,...

 
Quote
  BoC will have the option to renew the time deposits once for the same time duration

So in practice, savers might not get their hands on any of the money for a year, and could have to wait 24 months for the lot.

Just in -- the European Commission, ECB and IMF have published the results of their First Review Mission to Cyprus.

The top-line conclusion of the Troika's officials is that the Cypriot bailout programme is on track, with the Nicosia government hitting the targets set in the rescue agree in March. However, they also admitted that the Cyprus labour market has deteriorated more than they expected.

Here's the key section:

Quote
The short-run economic outlook remains difficult and subject to considerable uncertainty. Recent indicators support the program’s projections of a contraction in output of about 13 percent cumulatively during 2013-14. Encouragingly, confidence indicators have improved somewhat from the lows hit in April. But the labor market has weakened more than anticipated, and unemployment has continued to rise.

Growth is expected to recover modestly starting in 2015, driven by non-financial services.
Today's unemployment data confirms that Cyprus's labour market certainly has worsened. The jobless rate hit 17.3% in June, up from 16.5% in May. A year ago, the rate was 11.7%.

The full statement is online here: It explains that Cyprus will get its next bailout payment in September, if the Eurogroup and the Executive Board of the IMF agree with the report's findings.

My family is joining me in Limassol on Weds from the UK as we planned to have a new life here . The job i was offered here with a finance company has been withdrawn due to some license problem they have encountered .

My good lady and i are now both desperate to pick up any sort of work to pay the bills , we have a 9 year old boy due to start school here next month and that will cost money too .

 

Can anyone help us out or point us in the right direction please ?"

 noooo: noooo:

Prolly should have worked his own finances out first and got his position guaranteed before offering to go out and feck everyone elses.  noooo:

Without using quit the same phrasing Baldy I have to say I totally agree with you  ;D
This is now August 13 - the restrictions started in March - and this silly tosser  whistle: has only just realised the island has issues.....................
The only direction I could possibly point him is back up his own bum, which is obviously where his head has ben for the past 5 months or more  censored:

Apart from the dates..... Thumbs: Thumbs: Thumbs:

My mate is a director of 'the big one' in Limassol (there are not many).....if he was trying for a job there, he would have to be very good and not a chancer. They would have made it very clear what was required before he started.

It sounds like the twat prolly thought he might be up for something good and it did not work out.....then starts bleating about how shite life is.  noooo: I guess he ran away from other shite he had already caused somewhere else.

I will see my mate at the weekend and find out if he was one of their rejects.

I saw a brand new (M registered) red-plate this evening with the new format number plates.... EU logo and the date of registration in the middle...

But it didn't have a 'Z' at the front...?  rubschin:

Also, I note that the new plates that are required now are white front and back... Shrugs:

They had five hire cars between them and about five hundred miwlion children - all with iPhones...   Banghead

The problem is once you've taken all the shareholders money who is left to pay out the deposits of those with less than €100k?

I guess we'd all claw back any bonuses paid to directors but that wouldn't go very far so you get left with the choice of (a) hair cutting the deposits over the €100k guarantee, (b) hair cutting all deposits, (c) hair cutting taxpayers that had nothing to do with the bank or the Icelandic hair cutting anyone but your own voters.

Option (a) for me is the least worst

Odd coincidence that just today I heard a radio ad for the outfit who purport to "guarantee" your £85,000 deposits.

Bear in mind also that the scheme probably would NOT apply to a "haircut" - the scheme exist to cover a bank failing - not the government or ECB stealing your dosh!

No Nick - it's a gubbermint ad for the gubbermint's own scheme. I suspect they've seen a reduction in peoples' savings and are getting worried that, when the time comes here, there won't be enough dosh for them to nick . . . . So, they're trying to "reassure" people that saving is "safe" . . . .

I've had a few Mormons round here try and convert me and even if I was religious that would have been the sticking point. Their Law of Health/Word of Wisdom as supposedly given to Joseph Smith may state that the body is a temple and that and that by refusing such things as alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, tea and coffee you are closer to God but there is no way I could exist without blood in the caffiene stream.  noooo:

I did notice that asking about Cola did confuse the hell out of them as it also has caffeine in but isn't mentioned in the Law.  lol:

Asking about the polygamy or Warren Jeffs was also a no no  whistle:

Any reduction in public sector wages is illegal, said public servants union (PASYDY) chairman Glafkos Hadjipetrou yesterday, announcing the two-hour strike for next Thursday.

12 years ago I was paying 185 snotters a month.....feck knows what it would be now? They increased it by 30% in 2009, so I am told by my mate who lives just up the road from me.  eeek:

Oh well done Guido  ::), all those years building up a reputation and he's just gone and shot himself in the foot by recycling a 3 month old article in Forbes (http://www.forbes.com/sites/billfrezza/2013/10/15/the-international-monetary-fund-lays-the-groundwork-for-global-wealth-confiscation/) copying their misconstruction.

Because if he had read the actual IMF report as openly available since October      http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/fm/2013/02/pdf/fm1302.pdf (http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/fm/2013/02/pdf/fm1302.pdf)   then he'd have seen that quote from Box 6 is just the IMF summarising discussions they have already observed in Europe *

Perhaps the worst news for all new idiot conspiracy theorist Guido is that tin foil is no longer BOGOF so those special hats (http://www.instructables.com/id/Aluminum-Foil-Hat/) will cost him a little more.

Guido if you're reading this then here's a clue:  people who are out to swindle you do not publish their ideas openly on the internet.  Hope that helps, toodlepip



*  The report is copy protected but Box 6 is actually only referenced once, by page 39 of the report - in a chapter called "2. taxing our way out or— or into?—trouble"

"Just renewed the Road Tax on the wifes Fiat 500 875cc Twin Air Stop & Start with a 90 g/km CO2 & found it had increased by 67%. So much for running a green car.
I thought I read, Cyprus were bringing their Road Tax in line with other Euopean counties & if the CO2 was under 100 g/km there would be Zero Road Tax, instead it´s shot up to €30.00.
Also my 400cc scooter, not two years old yet, is now €39.00 up 130% from €17.00 last year.
Can see many taking a chance & not bothering. Also noted no price is printed on the Tax Disc this year"

Then we come to your 'Personal Care at Home' bill which if it hadn't been scrapped would have cost double the estimated amount to administer and provided less support, something you would have known if you'd bothered to listen to people and not make it up as you were going along, or did you think the party revolted because they didn't like you as a person. And finally, on the subject of growth, lets not even mention that the scorched earth financial policy you enacted in a fucking tantrum to make things as difficult as possible for the new government when it was clear your worthless arse was getting booted out of number 10 did massive economical damage.   cussing:
