Uniform European payment system  

All Euro transfers and direct debits within the SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) are made using SEPA, which is a uniform payment system used across Europe.

Easy to use

Private customers can make SEPA transfers at any time, online, at self-service kiosks and at a branch. To pay with a SEPA direct debit, all you need to do is to provide the payment recipient with a SEPA direct debit mandate.


Benefit from uniform payment standards across Europe.

Classical international transfers

Maximum flexibility – worldwide

International payments outside the SEPA zone can be simply and easily made with a classical international transfer (SWIFT payment).

Foreign currency transfers

This option allows you to transfer money in foreign currencies to any country in the world. To make a foreign currency transfer, simply complete a "International payment order" form either online or using a banking software such as SFirm. 

Euro transfers

Payments in Euro to countries outside the Eurozone (SEPA) are also easy to make using an international payment order.  

To do so, you will need to provide the following information:

  • Surname, first name or company name and address of the payment recipient.
  • Account number or International Bank Account Number (IBAN) of the payment recipient (provided by the payment recipient).
  • International Bank Identifier Code (BIC) of the recipient's bank.
  • Your own IBAN.
