You can send money overseas from your G&C Mutual Bank account to an overseas bank account via our International Payments Service, otherwise known as a telegraphic transfer (TT) or electronic transfer “Wire”. Funds are usually received within 2-3 working days1 and you can send the funds in your beneficiary’s local currency.
If you can’t make it into a Service Centre, or need to send money overseas on the fly, you can easily make a TT using Online Banking. Simply log on, go to “Payments” tab and select “International Transfers”. The country specific information and ‘help text’ will guide you through your transfer from start to finish.
You will need to provide the full name of your beneficiary and full details of the beneficiary’s bank account, including their IBAN2 (International Bank Account Number) if they are in Europe.
To comply with Australian Government regulations, you must provide the beneficiary’s full street address.
Include beneficiary bank’s code (sort code, SWIFT address, or routing number)3
