    * When making an International Payment there are two charging methods:

    Split Charges: Recipient and Correspondent banks abroad may charge a fee for receiving payments which will be paid by the recipient if you choose to share charges.

    Pay all Charges: A Correspondent Bank Fee will be payable for international payments where you choose to pay the charges for the recipient, if you are permitted to do so based upon the destination of the payment and the type of account that you hold. The Correspondent Bank Fee replaces all Correspondent bank charges. The recipient bank may still charge its customer a fee but we cannot provide information about such a fee.
