Amounts due to customers
In 2017, amounts due to customers amounted to PLN 222.5 billion and went up by 6.3%, i.e. PLN 13.2 billion, which was mainly due to an increase in amounts due to corporate entities (of PLN 7.0 billion y/y), to individuals (of PLN 3.1 billion y/y and state budget entities (of PLN 3.0 billion y/y). The increase was mainly related to cash on current accounts (an aggregate increase of PLN 24.9 billion y/y), accompanied by a drop in loans received from non-monetary financial institutions (of PLN 1.8 billion y/y), which was mainly a result of ongoing repayment of loans and the foreign exchange effect.

The maturity structure of amounts due to customers changed significantly in 2017. The share of amounts due maturing up to 1 month went up and represented 70% of all amounts due to customers as at 31 December 2017, which was a result of an increase in cash accumulated on current accounts.

The change in the level of these liabilities in annual terms results from considerable repayments of the liability.
External financing (in PLN billion)
Loans received from non-monetary institutions were another significant category of long-term financing and they comprised mainly loans from the subsidiary PKO Finance AB, which deals with issuing securities on foreign markets. The decrease in these liabilities is mainly a result of changes in foreign exchange rates and a gradual repayment of financing obtained from other financial institutions.
