Paying by bank transfer

If you are making a payment in a currency other than Swiss Francs (CHF), you will need to make sure it matches the amount we have billed you for. For example, if you make a transfer to our British Pound Stirling (GBP) or Euro (EUR) accounts you should also take into account what the current exchange rate is and whether you will be charged any associated transafaction fees by your bank. These should all be factored into your payment so the amount you send is equivelant to your bill in CHF. 

Top tips:

  1. One of the most most common ways groups choose to pay us is with Euro, even if this is not their own currency. This is because if you transfer money in Euros using an IBAN number to our BEKB Euro account you will pay little or no fees (under the SEPA Agreement). 
  2. Before making any payments we recommend contacting your bank to check what exchange rate they offer and if you will be charged any transaction fees.
