Re: Sending money from Switzerland to UK

My personal experience.

I used to get stung twice when making transfers to UK from CH.

No matter how much I complained to the UK/CH bank, they always said the problem was at the other end.

If you don't state who pays the costs of the transfer then there is every possibility that both will take their cut which can work out expensive.

I just started stating clearly on the transfer that I alone wanted to pay ALL costs, on this side, and then checked the amount that arrived (checking the rate also) that it added up to the amount I sent minus the CH costs - it worked.


When I filled out the transfer I wrote:

'sämtliche Spesen zu lasten Auftraggeber'

on it and that did it.


Your mileage may vary but it stopped them charging me almost twice as much as it should have cost.

Good luck
