Narodowy Bank Polski is the central bank of the Republic of Poland. Its tasks are stipulated in the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, the Act on Narodowy Bank Polski and the Banking Act. The fundamental objective of the NBP’s activity is to maintain price stability. Narodowy Bank Polski offers banks the possibility of making short-term (overnight) deposits with the central bank. The deposits are accepted until the end of the business day and the deposit amount together with interest due is returned on the following business day. The deposits carry a variable interest rate (deposit rate) set by the Monetary Policy Council.
Time deposits at the NBP allow commercial banks to manage their liquid funds surpluses, preventing short-term interbank market interest rates from falling below the deposit rate.
