    Posted: 03 Sep 07 at 19:47

Has anyone found a bank who are actually interested in assisting in transfering money by IBAN?

I've got all the details that i "should" need (IBAN & BIC numbers), but both my banks seem to want to know loads more details - names/addresses, account numbers...all details which are supposed to be contained within the IBAN and BIC numbers.

Anyone got any advice on a quick/easy way to pay money into a european account?

Chap in Germany, just under 100

Can't believe how a system which is supposed to identify any account (IBAN) still relies on you filling in a 2 page form before they charge you 17.50 for the privilige.

Let me know how you go. Last transfer I did, cost me 15EUR fee, to transfer 66.90EUR into a German bank account.

The chap claimed I only sent 54.90EUR, and emailed me a scan of his bank statement. It looks like HIS bank took  another 12EUR fee as well!

Yes - in my experience the German bank system seems to be disconnected with the UK and the cost of sending money via a bank is high (as reported by Grantus) for small amounts (like VW parts / spares!).

I have not yet managed to do a simple internet based bank transfer to Germany like I do in the UK bank system between UK accounts.   Maybe the problem is the UK bank system?!  (the UK government is on the case of the banks where they take 3 days to transfer money and maybe this will change the general money transfer system)

Like Billy, I have resorted to sending Euros - and the Germans seem to not use Paypal much either.

Why is that? Are they worried about the Paypal fees?

It would be way cheaper for me to even pay the Paypal fee, as an extra charge, rather than the rip-off bank fees.

It also means that they would receive the whole amount I send, rather than the "surprise" fee at the German bank end.

Been to the Nat West today, much more helpful than RBOS & Yorkshire Bank, managed to transfer the money from the kids savings account . I'm hoping that the charges will be limited to the tenner to Nat West...

As i understand it, IBAN is the way the rest of europe does it, its done, dusted, no steep comission and everyone seems to trust it. I think we may just be behind as usual.

To do a transfer within the EU now you have to quote the IBAN and BIC code. This has been law since the 1st of Jan. That is all the bank needs as you rightly have said they do not require the bank address unless you are transferring out side the EU where you will require, address, account number and routing number.

 

The reason for the long timescale on a foreign payment is that it is handled by multiple banks along the way. All of these may legitimatley chose to charge a fee, including the ultinate recipient bank to cover the processing cost.

 

Yes Uk interbank transfers will be pretty much instant from Nov, but the banking systems within europe are so diverse and have no shared platform so faster transfers are some way off.

 

My day job is a bank manager   -- well more precisely a manager who works for a bank.

Thanks Markpark - very useful information but your cover is now blown!  Watch out for VW vans stalking you!
