My son needs to transfer money from his American Wells Fargo account into my bankwest account. What information do I need to give him for this to take place?

Hi @Falcon25, thanks for your enquiry.


To send an IMT to a Bankwest account, you'll need to provide the following information:


Your full name
Residential address (PO box is not acceptable)
BSB and account number (IMTs cannot be paid into a Bankwest credit card as they do not have BSB / account numbers)

To receive money from the USA, the following information should also be provided:

Agent Bank: Bank of New York
ABA: 021000018
IBAN: IBANs are not used in Australia, but for some payments being received into Australia from IBAN mandatory countries the sender may need to provide an IBAN. To satisfy this requirement, your Bankwest BSB and account number should be combined and given to the sender. Note: no spaces, dashes or hyphens should be used. Example: 3060001234589 (BSB)(ACCT number).

It's also important to note that when Bankwest receives an international payment, a $10 inward payment order fee applies (this is non-refundable) for processing the payment. If the transfer is not sent in Australian dollars, the exchange rate on the day the funds are processed to the account will apply.


I hope this helps!
