Bank details required for receiving transfers in foreign currencies

1 In case of AMD transfers within Armenia, if the transferred amount contains luma, the amount will be rounded up to the decimal point according to standard rounding rule.
2 If the paper payment instruction in AMD (for amounts of up to AMD 25 million) is submitted to the Bank after 14:00, but not later than 15:00 and requested to be processed on the same day, the Bank will process the instruction, applying additional AMD 5,000 charge.
3 If the charge is being deducted from the foreign currency account, the transaction will be conducted at the average/mean foreign currency rate published by the Central Bank of Armenia (CBA) as of the previous/ current day of transaction (depending on the time of the transaction), unless it is specified otherwise between the Bank and the Client for the respective currency.
4 If the amendment or cancellation has been effected via HSBCnet, a reduced charge of AMD 3,000 will be applied.
5 If the amendment or cancellation has been effected via HSBCnet, a reduced charge of AMD 9,000 will be applied.
6 If the actual charge amount is above equivalent of AMD 20,000 the difference between already paid commission and actual charge is subject to further debiting from remitter's account.
