The depositor can withdraw a demand deposit at any time or use it for settlement.
General Demand Deposits
A Renminbi demand deposit can have a term of three months, six months, one year, two years or three years. A foreign currency demand deposit can have a term of one, three or six months, one year or two years.
Without a fixed term, you agree to withdraw your deposit only after sending us prior notice. With a higher yield than the demand deposit, the notice deposit allows you to save any principal exceeding our minimum requirement in one lump sum, and withdraw the money in one or more installments.
Currently, renmibi notice deposits include one-day and seven-day notice deposits, which require the depositor to deposit a minimum of RMB500,000 and withdraw a minimum of RMB100,000 each time. Based on seven days’ notice, notice deposits in foreign currency require the depositor to deposit and withdraw a an equivalent of RMB10,000 in foreign currency.
