Capitec Bank Fees 2018

Capitec Bank Fees 2018

We update our bank fees on 1 March every year. Here are the most important fees for you to know to help you bank better in 2018.


We released our updated fees on 1 March 2018 before the VAT increase from 14% to 15%. We will adjust our fees to incorporate the 1% VAT increase, effective 1 April 2018. 

To ease the financial burden on our clients,  fees for electronic payments on our app, Internet banking and USSD will not increase, as we’ll carry the costs. All other fees will increase to exactly 15% VAT, and not a cent more.


Even with the increase, app transaction fees are more than 50% lower than our branch fees. You also don’t pay for the data you use while banking on our app, so it remains the best way to bank.
