  • Fixed charge for checking an account balance in the institution's ATMs
  • Charge for cash withdrawal from the institution's ATMs
  • Charge for online transfer between accounts with different titleholders but in the same institution
  • Charge for making online payments to third parties
  • Charge for paying in a deposit in a domestic branch office other than the one where the account is held.
