Additional fee to cover correspondent bank charges

We use correspondent banks to process IMTs and there are charges for this service.

For cross-currency IMTs, we’ll absorb these correspondent bank fees when you send an IMT via NetBank, the CommBank app or in-branch. 

Sending an IMT from a Foreign Currency Account

You can choose to pay an additional fee when sending same currency transfers (e.g. sending an IMT using your GBP account to a GBP account overseas), using CommBiz or in-branch. The table below sets out the available currencies and corresponding fees. The fees below don’t cover any other charges incurred from the beneficiary’s bank, which may have their own processing fees. The fees are payable in AUD.
