Hi, i need to have some funds transferred into bankwest from bank in the US. Would the funds be able to come through properly with swift code and account number? Is that all I need? Thanks!

Hi @Jadiebee, thanks for reaching out.
To receive funds into your Bankwest account, you will need to provide the following info:
• Bank: Bankwest
• Your BSB and Account Number
• BIC/SWIFT Code: BKWAAU6P
• Bank Address: Either your local branch address (if known and still open) or 300 Murray Street, Perth WA 6000
It's also important to note that there is a non-refundable $10 Inward Order Payment fee for each deposit received from an overseas institution. Also, in some cases it may be necessary for the banks involved to utilise the services of a 'correspondent' bank to assist in the transfer. As banks do not hold offices in every country, it is necessary to establish reciprocal agreements with a representative bank that may assist in getting the funds transferred successfully to their destination.
If a correspondent bank is needed for assistance in the transfer, they are entitled to charge a fee for their services. This could mean that you may receive a lesser amount in your account than what the sender had originally sent. Other bank fees and agent fees are unknown to us, and therefore out of our control.
