AIB announced their new rules on current account charges back in May this year – but because the charges are applied quarterly – it is only now that customers are starting to see the charges on their accounts. Most customers will have had fees deducted on 16th September – and several will see fees totalling as much as €50 or €60 . If your AIB account drops below a balance of €2500 at any time in the quarter – you will be charged fees for the whole quarter .
