Deposit- and withdrawal limits (for intermediate account)
Deposit and withdrawal limits are a mandatory part, based on applicable rules and regulations, of the measures Bitvavo is obliged to take.
Bitvavo uses software that determines which limits apply in your individual case based on many factors such as (but not limited to) age, nationality, location, specified source of funds, payment method used, date of commissioning account and transaction history. However, to give you an indication, the maximum limits are discussed below so that you know when you could encounter them.
Note: it may be that your individual limits are lower than listed below.
High limits for EUR deposits and withdrawals
For incoming and outgoing cash flows, high limits are applied that you should not run into with average use of your Bitvavo account. The maximum limits that apply are:
Year / Maximum
If you exceed your individually determined limit for funds, our compliance department will contact you. Our compliance team will determine, in consultation with you, which documents are required to upgrade your account from an Intermediate account to a Pro account.
Moderate limits for digital currency withdrawals and deposits
Moderate limits are applied to incoming and outgoing digital currency transactions, as regulators consider incoming and outgoing digital currency transactions as an increased risk. The maximum limits that apply are:
Year / Maximum
If you wish to exceed your individually determined digital currency limit, you must upgrade your account from an Intermediate account to a Pro account before being able to perform your desired transactions.
How limits work
The mentioned limits work in the following way::
- Limits are net amounts (e.g. fiat withdrawals decrease the net fiat deposit amount)
- Limits are calculated separately for digital currency and fiat currency.
- Limits are calculated separately for deposits and withdrawals.
- Limits are calculated over rolling periods and not per calendar.
- Daily limits count the last 24 hours of activity.
- Monthly limits count the last 30 days of activity.
- Annual limits count the last 365 days of activity.
- Annual limits override monthly limits; monthly limits override daily limits.
Upgrade account to Pro account for unlimited limits
If you wish to increase your limits, you must upgrade your account from an Intermediate account to a Pro account. Once you have done that, depending on the documents you have sent, unlimited limits may apply to you.
What is required for this?
For this you must provide documents that substantiate the source of your funds.
