Hi,

My client from Germany has postponed the payment. When I asked him for explanation, he claimed that he tried sending them from his personal account and it was blocked because it exceeded a quota that can be sent to outside Germany.

Does Germany have any specific regulations setting a ceiling to amount that can be transferred abroad from personal accounts?

TIA,

Romuald

No official restrictions AFAIK Sep 17, 2003

Hi,
I'm not in my office today, so I cannot properly research this, but there are no restrictions to international payments that I'm aware of. Depending on the amount, there may be a requirement to submit a report on the reasons for payment, for statistical purposes (but IIRC this applies to payments of EUR 12,500 or higher - not sure about Poland, though). What is more likely is that the restriction is on your client's online banking, for safety reasons, but then this would typically be a per-day limit.

HTH - Ralf

Food for thought Sep 17, 2003

Thank you, Ralph. You provided me with some food for thought regarding the client... Need to "redesign" my business relationship with him.

Best regards,

Romuald
