Constitutional Court:

Ban on charging-on of ATM fees lifted

With its ruling on G 9/2018 and G 10/2018 the Austrian Constitutional Court has annulled the provision of Sec 4a of the Austrian Act on Consumer Payment Accounts (VZKG) as unconstitutional and granted the application of 495 banks represented by DSC Doralt Seist Csoklich. According to this norm the banks would have had to exempt consumers from the payment of withdrawal fees, which independent ATM operators agreed upon with the consumer. The Constitutional Court followed the reasoning of the banks that this provision would burden them with an incalculable cost risk, which constitutes a disproportionate encroachment on the right to inviolability of property.
