Key Highlights

1. Lietuvos Bankas – the central bank of Lithuania – has taken a number of initiatives to bring a larger proportion of the population into the formal financial system. In October 2016, it mandated banks in Lithuania to provide a basket of basic services– a checking account, payment card, and electronic banking facility with a minimum of 10 online transfers– for a maximum monthly fee of US$1.7 (EUR1.5). For low-income consumers, the monthly charges cannot exceed US$0.83 (EUR0.75).

2. Lithuania became a member of the EU on January 1, 2015. Its accession means Lithuania is required to adopt the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) framework, and other regulations that apply to all member states, such as the capping of interchange fees for credit and debit cards at 0.3% and 0.2% respectively. SEPA requirements came into effect from January 2016, and are anticipated to have a major impact on profitability in Lithuania’s payment cards market. With interchange fee revenues reduced, issuers are likely to cut card offerings and consumer benefits, and look at new ways to generate revenue.

3. To protect consumers from financial burdens, the central bank amended responsible lending regulations (RLR) in November 2015. According to the new guidelines, the maximum monthly credit repayment amount cannot exceed more than 40% of the borrower’s monthly income, and the maximum maturity of credit cannot exceed 30 years. The regulation was introduced following a survey conducted by the central bank in January 2016, according to which 75% of families with an income below US$388.8 (EUR350) were indebted to credit issuers, and 71.8% of indebted families were unable to save during the last quarter of 2015. The RLR regulation requires card issuers to assess borrowers’ credit repayment capabilities before issuing credit cards.
