Explanation:
...kann xxx Verzugszinsen zu einem Satz von 3% p.a. über dem Satz für Ausleihungen unter Banken berechnen, mindestens jedoch zu 6%.

An \"interbank\" rate is not necessarily an international rate, but the rate charged among banks (usually among those with a top credit rating); the most prominent examples are LIBOR [London Interbank Offered Rate] and the EURIBOR [the equivalent of LIBOR on a European basis].
(You may want to add that the correct English term is \"interbank\", not \"inter-banking\"...)

Interbankrate


Explanation:
Your translation is fine except for the "inter-banking lending rate". In German that's the "Interbankrate", i.e. the interest rate charged between banks on loans. This rate is substantially lower than normal interest rates, and often is "pegged" to the lending rate of the central bank.

almost perfect


Explanation:
der letzte Satzteil lautet eigentlich:
..., aber in keinem Fall WENIGER als 6 % p.a.

Da stimmt der Originaltext nicht. Das sollte bestimmt MORE sein. Eine Mindestgrenze fuer Verszugszinsen gibt es doch wohl nicht, oder?
Und sollte in dem einen Satz die obere und untere Grenze ausgedrueckt werden, dann waere das ABER falsch.

Also doch perfect.
Aber ich wuerde den Auftraggeber auf den Fehler aufmerksam machen.

... und der Zinssatz bekommt ein extra S.

:o)

Explanation:
Short of the one typo and one logical inversion, your translation already did the job.
