Hello Colleagues,

I am english to Turkish translator, and I want to attend DIPTRANS 2014 Exam. But I have to wire the fee of the exam to the UK Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland. I need to wire 565 Pounds. But I do not know how much the correspondent bank will charge in UK, so if I send just 565 pounds, IOL will not receive the full amount. Do anybody know how much correspondents banks charge for wire transferring to a UK bank like Royal Bank of Scotland?

Thank you.

Nuri Razi

Different banks charge different amounts, the way to ensure they receive all the money is to tell your bank to charge you all the fees.

SWIFT wire transfers can be sent three different ways (as regards the payment of fees), this is a code your bank writes on the wire transfer and which is set by SWIFT:

BEN: The beneficiary (person receiving the money) pays all fees.
SHA: The fees are shared, the sender and receiver each pay fees.
OUR: The person sending the money pays all the fees (this is the one you need to use in this case)

So just tell the bank to send the money charging you all the fees.

Correct, but sometimes OUR instruction isn't enough since there could be an intermediate bank (between beneficiary bank and sender bank) that charges (and deducts) its part of fees.

You should ask your bank whether wire transfers to RBS pass through another bank in between.

Direct, right? Aug 10, 2013

When you send money from RBS Turkey to RBS, UK- you are well covered, I think- I mean no intermediate banks.

This has never happened to me, as far as I know the SWIFT instructions state that OUR covers all fees including intermediary banks

OUR instructions mean the sender pays for his bank fees and the beneficiary bank fees.

Any intermediate bank can charge more fees which are deducted from the amount the beneficiary receives.

And some banks work with several intermediate banks in chain.

Dear 2g Trad Aug 12, 2013

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for the replies, it indeed was helpful.

Dear 2g TRad,

So does SWIFT OUR enough for beneficiary to receive the full amount sent or there will be intermediary bank deducations from what beneficiary gets?

It could be enough provided that sender's bank transfers the money directly to beneficiary's bank.
Should this not happen, any intermediary bank could claim its part of fees while the money is on the way.

It all depends on sender's bank and beneficiary's bank agreements.

Bye
Gianni
