Additional fee to cover charges by overseas banks

When you send an International Money Transfer (IMT), overseas banks may deduct processing fees from the amount you transfer, which could result in the recipient receiving less than the amount you send.

For selected countries and currencies, you have the option to pay an additional fee to cover charges by overseas banks. This option is available for IMTs sent via branch and CommBiz only, and is not available for IMTs sent in NetBank or the CommBank app. View a list of the countries and currencies where this additional fee option is available.
