For eligible users, Lydia takes the total balance of the accounts every day of the previous month and applies a rate of 2% gross per year.

The bonuses received are subject to taxation in France.

Remuneration is paid net of tax (70% of the gross amount). Lydia takes care of the withholding tax (single flat-rate deduction of 12.8% income tax and 17.2% social security contributions), as well as the pre-declaration to the tax authorities. No action is required on the customer's part. Any remuneration received from Lydia will automatically appear on the customer's tax return for confirmation.

In the conditions provided by law, the customer can request an exemption from income tax (12.8%). However, the customer cannot request an exemption from social contributions (17.2%). The beneficiary is responsible for submitting their exemption request each year no later than November 30th to avoid being deducted the following year, by contacting their Lydia advisor from the Application Guide tab or by clicking here from their mobile. This form must be completed and signed by hand. If you have already completed this form for the previous "Lydia bonus" offer, your declaration will automatically be taken into account for the "remunerated current account".
Customers who do not wish to benefit from the interest-bearing current account must inform customer service or click here from a cell phone. If you have already applied for the previous "Lydia bonus" offer, your application will automatically be taken into account for the "interest-bearing current account".
