The financial situation in the Fund is very difficult. Last year, they showed that they owe banks 230 million KM on the basis of loans taken. Therefore, it is not considered a reliable client with the banks, so the Government of Srpska had to give guarantees that it will be returned for this, the most recent, indebtedness.

The fund borrows for 10 years, including a minimum of 12 months of grace period, and is ready to pay interest up to a maximum of 3.5 percent.

To ensure the repayment of the debt, bills and orders of the HIF are provided, as well as a guarantee from the Government of the RS, and the criterion for awarding the contract is the lowest price.

Interested banks can submit bids from March 2.

Although the Fund boasts of reduced liabilities and increased revenues, the fact is that they are often forced to borrow.

According to the data of the Finance Department, the fund has 11 open loans in four banks, the largest of which is the one of 133 million marks from 2018, which was raised to refinance liabilities and settle debts, which is what CAPITAL previously written in the text RS HIF owes banks 230 million marks!

HIF also has huge claims from employers who owe more than 280 million marks on the basis of health insurance contributions.
