How do I complete an international funds transfer using NetBank?
To send an International Money Transfer through NetBank, you need to:

  1. Register for a NetCode. You can register for NetCode SMS (accessible only to Australian mobile phones) or NetCode Token.
  2. Activate the International Money Transfer service in NetBank. A default limit of $0 per customer per day applies to International Money Transfers (IMTs) using NetBank.  Your IMT daily withdrawal limit is the maximum amount you can send as International Money Transfers within any 24 hour period.

Your daily withdrawal limit will initially be set at $5,000 but you can request that this be increased up to $50,000. If you do, your liability for unauthorised transactions may also increase.

To arrange this, please contact our NetBank Help Desk on 13 2221, Option 4, 7 days a week.  

If I accidentally transfer funds to the wrong account, how can I retrieve the money?
First you should attempt to contact the recipient to obtain a refund. If you do not know the recipient or you are unable to contact the recipient, you should contact the Bank and talk to a customer service officer. We will attempt to recover the payment or transfer on your behalf, however recoveries are performed on a best endeavours basis and you cannot make any claim upon us. If the transfer was made to a Commonwealth Bank account, organising a recovery will cost $25. If the transfer was made to another bank, organising a trace and recovery will cost $50. It’s important to note that retrieval isn’t guaranteed but we do our best to recover funds on our customers’ behalf.

Please call the NetBank Help Desk on 13 2221.

What is a NetBank Business Plan and what does it include?
