Electronic transfers

Receive money from overseas
into your offshore account

When you need to receive currency and sterling payments from abroad, this is the fastest and most secure method.



  • Security - the sender's bank issues electronic payment instructions to a bank - preferably RBS International. The money is then paid into your account
  • Speed - the funds are received from overseas as quickly as possible. This will be either on the value date or, if this is not possible, on the next possible value date
  • Simplicity - reduce the paperwork required for cheque and draft payments
  • Low cost - pay 1 to receive payments up to 100 or the foreign currency equivalent. We charge 7 to receive payments over 100 or currency equivalent
  • Currency conversion - if the currency of the payment and the currency of your account are different, we simply convert sums of under the equivalent of 25,000
